The Vatican Museums
At the Vatican Museums, finish your security check, get your voucher scanned at the ticket office, and explore a whole world of art for as long as you like. Admire classical sculptures, tapestries, and paintings by Renaissance greats like Raphael, Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Bernini, and Leonardo da Vinci. There's an entire section devoted to Modern Religious Art, where you'll find pieces by van Gogh, Dalí, and Picasso. Must-visit sections of the Vatican Museums include the Raphael Rooms, the Gallery of Maps, the Sala Rotunda and the Gallery of Statues, and the Hall of Busts.
Of course, one cannot visit the Vatican Museums without seeing the iconic Sistine Chapel. Located at the end of the Vatican Museums and neighboring St. Peter's Basilica, this 15th-century chapel's walls and ceilings are covered by some of the most astounding frescoes ever produced. The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, painted by Michelangelo in a span of 4 years, is considered to be a cornerstone of western art. The Last Judgement covers the wall behind the altar and is probably the most famous single work of art in the Sistine Chapel. Please note: Entry to the museums is by obligatory online booking.
The Colosseum is believed to have been built as a gift from the ancient emperors to the Roman people. This majestic outdoor amphitheater once served as the epicenter for entertainment, hosting public spectacles and games. The Colosseum has had quite a bloody past. It was, after all, a stage for gladiator fights, often including animals. This is your chance to 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. See popular sites such as the Temple of Antoninus Pius, Temple of Castor and Pollux, Temple of Saturn, 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, it is now an extensive archaeological site.
