The capital city of Italy, located on the river Tiber has more than 2,500 years of history. The Vatican City is located in the centre of Rome and is the seat of the Roman Catholic Church. The Vatican City is a sovereign territory and the home of the Holy Father, Pope Francis. Today Rome is a modern cosmopolitan city and the third most visited tourist destination in Europe.
