Vatican / Borgo
Frocked priests, colorful Swiss Guards, insistent
souvenir shop owners, flag-waving tour guides, and
pilgrims from around the world. This is the Vatican
and Borgo, Rome's most recognized neighbourhood which
acts as Vatican City's front yard. Aside from the

tiny medieval sector bustles with holy activity, as
