The Pope's GardensThe beautiful Vatican Garden is spread out on 40,000 square meters of land, rich with vegetation of flower beds, trees, lawns, sculptures, fountains and pools. These gardens separate Vatican City from Rome and its surroundings.
Since 1279 the place has served as the resting place of the pope and therefore the Pope's private radio station and helipad are also located there.
When you enter as a visitor, along with the guided tour lasting about two hours, you go through about 2000 years of history.
TipsPlease note that there is no entrance to the Vatican Garden without registering for a guided tour.
