The Museums hold many priceless works of art including the "Raphael Rooms" and many galleries of sculpture, tapestries and frescos.St. Peter's Basilica is built on Vatican Hill, across the Tiber river from the historic center of Rome. This was the site where Saint Peter, the chief apostle, died a martyr and where he was buried in 64 A.D.
