This is the Vatican. It is an entire walled complex measuring about 0.5 km² or 0.2 square miles. A lot of people assume the Vatican is just St. Peter's Basilica, which is only the most famous part of it. In the desktop or computer version of my site you can hover your mouse over the areas of the map that have a circular box on them to see that part of the Vatican. You can click on that box to see a photo of the building. This map was made by Amadeo Gigli. I identified the areas and coded the additions.

My Tour reviews:
Tons of Sense of Humour
I love Dara's format of explaining with tons of sense of humour.

The tour was very good and Dara had the perfect combination of knowledge, respect and humour! It was good he had this as the tour is long but we knew it would be. The only aspect of the tour which saddened me and my friends (this has no reflection on Dara) when we entered the Sistine Chapel I could believe the noise, flash photography and uncovered arms!!) This is obviously a sign of the times but the Vatican should Not allow it. Vatican Tour was amazing and of course I will be recommending it.

Dara's knowledge was superb and was able to make the information very enjoyable. Hearing some other guides as we went round, his knowledge and expertise was a lot better and without this I think we would have skipped through a lot of the Museums and just gone to the Sistine Chapel as it was so busy.

By Far the Best I have Ever Experienced
Having travelled a great deal, I have been on many tours in many places, but this tour was by far the best I have ever experienced! Dara delivered a lot of information in a quick and witty way. I am so glad we didn't try to visit the Vatican without a tour. Thanks so much for a wonderful day!
