Vatican City, a city-state encompassed by Rome, Italy, is the base camp of the Roman Catholic Church. It's home to the Pope and a trove of notable craftsmanship and design. Its Vatican Museums house antiquated Roman models, for example, the renowned "Laoco├Ân and His Sons" just as Renaissance frescoes in the Raphael Rooms and the Sistine Chapel, celebrated for Michelangelo's roof.
