For many, a visit to the Vatican is one of the top reasons to visit Rome, and it is a vast and majestic place, jam-packed with things to see, so it's best to plan ahead. Borgo and Prati are the neighborhoods immediately surrounding the Vatican and it's worth noting that while the Vatican might be a priority, these neighborhoods are not the best places to choose a hotel as they're quite far from other top sights in the city.
