Mostly pay per view on the main attractions. Every possible place and turn has a gift shop with a twist: the only areas that are cooled. This mskes want to linger longer.

A very small city in Rome. It is where the most important church for the Catholics is , which is the St Peters Basilica. A city rich in history.
