The Vatican

For many, a visit to the Vatican is one of the top reasons to visit Rome, and it is a vast and majestic place, jam-packed with things to see. It's always best to plan ahead, and December 2015 through much of 2016 will be especially busy with pilgrims, as Pope Francis has decreed a Jubilee Year. The Borgo and Prati are the neighborhoods immediately surrounding the Vatican, and it's worth noting that, while the Vatican may well be a priority, these neighborhoods are not the best places to choose a hotel, as they're quite far from other top sights in the city.
