From one of the Seven Wonders of the World (the Roman Colosseum) to the Pantheon, the Roman-era comes alive here. On the other hand, there is also the smallest country in the world: Vatican City. This is the only case of a country within the boundaries of a city. Here you can discover some of the best catholic churches such as the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica.
