your experience

Leonardo Express

Enjoy a comfortable and speedy transfer between Fiumicino Airport to Rome Termini Station in just 32 minutes. This pass allows you to skip any lines for tickets and unnecessary delays due to multiple stops. If you wish to leave Rome or have just arrived aboard the Leonardo Express, quickly reach the destination of your choice.

This method is the quickest alternative to all public transportation options, including lines to Florence, Bologna, Milan, Venice, and Naples/Salerno. When you land at the Airport, move to the station within the premise and catch the train which leaves every 15 minutes.

Rome Termini Railway Station is conveniently located in the center of the city allowing you multiple options to explore from here. You can take the exit onto Via Marsala to the right side, Via Giolitti to the left, or Piazza Dei Cinquecento straight away. If Rome Termini is not your final destination, it is super easy to catch a taxi or go for Metro lines A and B. You can also find options for various bus routes from this point.

Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel

Once you meet your host at the designated meeting point, you will take a short walk to the entrance to the Vatican Museums. Upon entering, you will be free to roam the Museum and Sistine Chapel at your own pace. The Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel boast the finest artwork ever to be made. Made up of 54 galleries, the Vatican Museums house one of the largest, and also the most important, collections of Renaissance art in the world. Built in the 15th century, the Sistine Chapel's walls and ceilings are covered in some of the most wonderful frescoes ever produced.

The 54th gallery of the Vatican Museums is the famed Sistine Chapel. Initially built in the 15th Century, the paintings by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel were painted in the 16th century. View many of the most famous frescoes in the world, including the famous ceiling and Final Judgement painted by Michelangelo. Not only does the Sistine Chapel hold some of the world's most precious works of art, but it is also still used for religious purposes such as the Papal Conclave - the process through which a new Pope is chosen.

Sites Covered

Vatican Museum and its Walls | Pigna Courtyard | Pius Clementino Museum | Candelabra Gallery | Tapestries Gallery | Raphael's Rooms | Sistine Chapel: Michaelangelo's Final Judgement and Creation of Adam fresco

Colosseum, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill

The Colosseum is one of Italy’s most popular destinations, attracting over 5 million visitors every year. Believed to have been constructed as a gift from the ancient emperors to the Roman people, this grand outdoor amphitheater once served as the epicenter for entertainment, hosting various public spectacles and games. A stage for gladiator fights, often including animals, the Colosseum has quite a bloody past. Step back in time, marvel at the impressive architecture, and walk the floor of the greatest arena known to mankind.

Your Colosseum ticket also includes entry to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Head to the Roman Forum and travel back in time as you walk along the same paths as the ancient Romans did. You’ll get a chance to witness popular sites including the Temple of Antoninus Pius, the Temple of Castor and Pollux, the Temple of Saturn, the Arch of Septimius Severus, and much more. Palatine Hill offers one of the best views of the city. Once considered the most desirable neighborhood in Rome, Palatine Hill lives on an extensive archaeological site and was the chosen spot for Emperors to build their homes.
