This is a rather simple collection of instruments which take the various measurements of the weather. The data is processed and then posted online.


Although this service doesn’t provide a weather forecast, it does give the 800 inhabitants of the Vatican the opportunity to check the current temperature, wind speed, air pressure and amount of rain that falls in Vatican City.


Apart from the Vatican’s weather, you can also check out webcams focused on St. Peter’s square, Castel Gandolfo and John Paul II’s tomb.
