Does the Vatican City participate in the Olympics?
Not under a Vatican City flag. There are 202 nations/independent territories/ commonwealths/ protectorates and geographical areas that have been issued 3-letter abbreviations (trigram) by the International Olympic Committee. The trigrams are issued to countries with National Olympic Committees (NOCs). NOCs are in place to ensure the nations best athletes attend the Olympics. Vatican City does not have a NOC and so its athletes cannot compete as Vatican City athletes.

Vatican City does not have a National Olympic Committee and, therefore, does not participate in the Olympics.
Vatican City is an independent country with the pope as its leader. It has the same function as any other country and its own economy, royal defense force, and government. It …is neither its is accually the smallest country in the world....only aproxamatley 1000 people ive there
Vatican City is the smallest independent state in the world in population (832 people) and size, at 0.17 sq. mi. (0.44 sq. km.). It is located within the city of Rome, Italy a…nd gained it's independence from Italy in 1929. The head of state is the Pope. Vatican City is a city, but it is also a country; it is basically an city-country.
Vatican City is a country within Rome which is the capital of Italy. It has no cities, towns or capitals. The Sistine Chapel is located there, as well as St. Peter's Basilica.… There is about 900 people who live there if I am correct. The Vatican is located in Rome, Italy and is the smallest city state in world. It is the home of the Pope and the Catholic Church. Located in the Vatican is St. Peter's that was designed by Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel that was painted by him. Buried within St. Peter's is the tomb of Peter and past popes. Also there is 4 museums, and vast amounts of art and antiquities. There is also a library filled with books from through the ages and it has it's own banking system. I have been there three times and still want to go back. Vatican City or simply the Vatican, is a sovereign country completely within the city of Rome. It is the headquarters of the Catholic Church and has fantastic museums in which not only church history is preserved, but ancient history as well.
No. The Vatican is an autonomous country but it doesn't participate in Olympics.
The city of Rome in Italy, surrounds the Vatican City.
Vatican CITY. It has one city. It is called Vatican City. Simple, eh? The confusion arises because the Vatican City is actually an independent country in its own right - the s…mallest country in the world. All other countries have cities, towns or regions. Even the next smallest country, Monaco, has districts within its borders like La Condamine (the harbour area) Monacoville (the Old Town) and Monte Carlo (the largest city). However, the Vatican consists of just St Peter's Square, St Peter's Church, the vatican museums, the offices and residences of the Catholic Church heriarchy (including the Pope), the Sistine Chapel, some gardens and a few other churches and buildings in a very small area. So, as well as being a lone city, it is also a country in its own right.
The Vatican City does not have an office called "City Manager." The Pope is the head of state for the Vatican but manages this independent city state of about 800+ residents t…hrough a Governorate. The Governorate is the group of Departments through which the President, assisted by a Secretary General and a Deputy Secretary General, exercises executive power. It is divided into numerous Administrations and Central Offices, common to many cities around the world.
The Vatican City is located inside Rome which is in the province of Lazio, Italy. It is technically a separate state. It is in Rome, Italy Within the boundaries of Rome.
The Vatican became an independent country in 1929 with the signingof the Lateran Treaty by Pope Pius XI and Benito Mussolini,
Yes, Vatican City is a city. The Vatican is a small area set aside in the city of Rome and it the seat of the Catholic church. It is where the Pope resides and does his bu…siness for the people of his church. It is mainly made up of St. Peter's Church, the gardens of the pope, the Vatican museum's, the Sistine Chapel, and the offices related to the governance of the church. It has it's own security and guards. There are other parts of the Vatican beyond the small area where it is located such as Castel Gandolfo.
The HDI of Vatican City has never been measured.
Vatican City is a city-state, a country consisting of only one city. So the capital is also Vatican City.
