Vatican City State was founded following the signing of the Lateran Pacts between the Holy See and Italy on February 11th 1929. These were ratified on June 7th 1929. Its nature as a sovereign State distinct from the Holy See is universally recognized under international law.
The Vatican City State is situated on the Vatican hill, on the right bank of the Tiber River, within the city of Rome.
Over Rome, City streets were paved with large fitted stones lain upon a foundation of rock.
So, if you're in heels like me, you'll have problems.
My heels got stuck in between the rock for more than i could count *lost count*
Do you know that you can actually drink the water straight right outta the fountain throughout Italy ? Hmm ... No need to buy bottled water *hahahaha*
See ? That's why i have problem walking in heels ... gosh ~
Welcome to Vatican City =)
Ready ? *kan chiong*
Heard that Vatican City is kinda strict in a way ... Having their own ruling system all and all ...
The pope has full legal, executive, and judicial powers. Executive power over the area is in the hands of a commission of cardinals appointed by the pope. The College of Cardinals is the pope's chief advisory body, and upon his death the cardinals elect his successor for life.
Please dont get stuck again ... please please please
