Vatican. The smallest independent country in the world by both area and population.
Vatican City is a walled enclave within the city of Rome. The territory is distinguished from the territory of Italy only by a white line. I favour wandering in the early morning while the town is peaceful, compared to the stampede of organised tour groups in the heat of the day. Having a moment getting to know the destination to yourself might impact your entire experience.
