Covering 44 hectares (110 acres) in the city center of Rome, the wall-enclosed sovereign state of Vatican City is one of the most famous religious sites worldwide, serving as the papal residence and home of the Roman Catholic church.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Cascata delle Marmore and Giardino dei Tarocchi. Change things up with these side-trips from Vatican City: Parco dei Mostri (in Bomarzo), Villa Lante (in Bagnaia) and Centro Storico di Celleno Vecchia (in Celleno). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 4th (Sat) at Zoomarine. There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of St. Peter's Basilica, don't miss a visit to Grotte di Pastena, explore the world behind art at Sistine Chapel, and pause for some photo ops at La Pieta.

If you are flying in from Norway, the closest major airports are Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and Ciampino–G. B. Pastine International Airport. In August, daytime highs in Vatican City are 38°C, while nighttime lows are 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
