Take a tour through the 23 hectares (57 acres) of parks and gardens at Vatican Gardens. This space covers more than half of the Vatican territory, and features green lawns and flowers, fountains, and statues, as well as medieval fortifications, monuments, and buildings from the ninth century up to the present day. As general access is limited to tour groups, this green area is more peaceful than the rest of Vatican City.

Incredible ornate landscapes to walk around. Can take a few hours to see everything. Brilliant for photographers too with lots of variety and excellent lighting. Not cheap too enter but a once in a lifetime experience with an ambiance that's difficult to find in any other city.
Absolutely unearthly experience. Lovely greenery, trees, bushes and flowers. Statues and monuments really make it feel like a paradise. The omnipresent great views of St. Peter's are just stunning. Plus you get to learn about the functionings of the state of the Vatican with your guide. Oh and you can say, that you have crossed an entire country on foot ;) :D. Great, relaxing! Recommended!!
