Have you thought of asking the Vatican Museums?

They will not have figures for Vatican City.

Since a number of people visit St. Peter's Basilica (no charge) without going to the Vatican Museums, this may be one of those things that can never be answered. If Wikipedia can't tell you, then emailing the Vatican Museums would be your next best bet.

I found this article by Googling and it says that 2005 was a record year where 3.8 million visited the Vatican Museums. It also says that about 17,000 people visit Vatican City daily.

Piazza San Pietro (St Peter's Square) is part of the Vatican, and anyone can wander into it from Italy, so it would be impossible to count how many people go to the Vatican.
