    If you take the subway, then you MUST visit the Vatican Museum first. Hop onto the Cipro line which is the CLOSEST stop though not all trains stop there ...

    If you refer to board a bus to St. Peter's Square instead, you may just want to visit the church first if you've not arrived early in the morning. The walk between the Museum and the Square is just 1KM, approximately 15 minutes.

    If you ask me, better take a bus to Piazza di Risorgimento if you can; the Piazza is just a few hundred meters from the Museum entrance anyway. Or better still, hail a cab. The cost should be under ITL15,000 from almost any central city location (in Rome). Happy galavanting, my friends!

    The Vatican has an incredibly complex yet efficient subway system. Er, no. It's the world's smallest country. The parts that you can visit are about as large as your average suburban shopping mall. Methinks that you'll be walking.

    This is inside St. Peter's Cathedral. I thought this was a really cool picture, how the sunlight is hitting the statue and all...decide for yourself.

    I didn't take a horse-drawn carriage ride, but I would imagine a ride around the Piazza in the evening would be beautiful.

Vatican City is in Rome, so you can use any Roman mode of transportation to get there. Note that I do mean "get there" - once you are in Vatican City, you'll walk.
