The neighborhood San Pietro-Vaticano is certainly one of the most beautiful areas of Rome, not only because it hosts the Vatican City, which is considered the smallest State in the world, but also because within the neighborhood you will find the famous Borgo Pio a very interesting area not only for the medieval town planning and for the monuments and architectures but also because it is a fun site, where to spend their time between clubs, bars and restaurants where to listen to good music with friends and for sure to enjoy an excellent real Italian pizza.
Obviously the highlight of the area is without doubt the St. Peter's Basilica, which is the heart of Christianity in the world and the Vatican City with its thousands of artistic and historical beauties that make it one of the most fascinating places in the world. Truly not to be missed when the sun has set is the impressive scenery of the Basilica that stands at the end of Via della Conciliazione. However this area of the centre of rome not only offers this wonder: for example more striking monument is the Passetto — a fortified corridor, visitable on request, connecting the Vatican to Castel Sant'Angelo fortress. Right on the walls of the passetto is the fountain of tiaras that was completed in 1927 by Pietro Lombardi. On via della Conciliazione you can admire Palazzo Torlonia, built in 1496 was commissioned by Cardinal Adriano Castellesi and was later the British Embassy for many years. Also note the fountain of cannon balls, which are explicit references to the nearby fortress of Castel Sant'Angelo, porta Santo Spirito, the southern gate to the leonine walls erected around 846 to defend Borgo Pio by the Saracens.
The St. Peter-Vatican district is also well connected to the public transportation system. At about 700 metres away is the Metro Station Ottaviano San Pietro and a whole series of public bus lines that allow you to easily navigate to any point of the city and its historical centre
