ITALY

Upscale Living Magazine - - Art + Culture -

The in­de­pen­dent city-state en­claved within Rome, Vat­i­can City is the small­est state in the world by both area and pop­u­la­tion. Es­tab­lished in 1929 with the Lat­eran Treaty, the area is ruled by the pope and con­tains re­li­gious and cul­tural sites such as St. Pe­ter’s Basil­ica, the Sis­tine Chapel and the Vat­i­can Mu­se­ums. One of the most sa­cred places in Chris­ten­dom, it is the site of the tomb of the Apos­tle Saint Pe­ter and is a cre­ation of the Re­nais­sance and of Baroque art
