Vatican City: Art and Glory tours Vatican City, the capital of Roman Catholicism, and the repository for a striking array of Italy's cultural masterpieces. The smallest independent principality in the world, Vatican City occupies the banks of the Tiber in the heart of Rome, with the Pope presiding as leader of the city state. Viewers see the city through the eyes of its artists, poets, and architects. Vatican City: Art and Glory presents Michelango's Sistine Chapel, the Pieta, the dome Michelangelo designed to crown St. Peter's Church, Bernini's canopy shooting from the center of the Church's nave, St. Peter's Square, and more. Each year, hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to the Vatican City. ~ Betsy Boyd, Rovi
