Toynbee, 'The Shrine of Saint Peter and its Setting' Journal of Roman Studies XLIII,   The Vatican is the smallest sovereign state in the world, measuring only about acres (44 hectares).

Quick fun facts about St Peters Basilica Rome: St Peters is not a cathedral (a cathedral needs to have a bishop and St. Peters does not have one.); Although Saint Peter's is one of the most important Catholic churches in the world, it is NOT the Pope's Pope, who is the Bishop of Rome, has as his church the Archbasilica of Saint John in Lateran (also in Rome.).

From the Holy Grail to the Holy City (Revi Abstract at Notes.) There is only one way to make sure we are not on a wild goose chase: We must leave the Pyrenees behind and visit the Lion's Den, the Vatican, to check if Peter's skull and crossbones are missing from his tomb. A difficult task it would seem, because there are no historical records of Peter's martyrdom and burial in Rome. St Peter’s Basilica in Rome is one of the world’s holiest catholic shrines, visited by thousands of pilgrims and tourists every month. Built upon the tomb of St Peter, this splendid church is a magnificent must-see for visitors to Rome. The history behind the creation of St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome is almost as amazing as the building itself.
