Ascent Trip Report

It is only allowed to visit the highpoint in the Gardens of the Vatican with a guide. The natural highpoint of Colle Vaticano (Mons Vaticanus) is just north of the Radio Vatican. If you like "climbing" the top you have to leave the tourist group for a short time - but no security should see you! We "climbed" the top and no "vatican-ranger" made a notice of our climb :-)
