your experience

With this special combo, you will visit the two single-most-important attractions in Rome, the Vatican, and the Colosseum, in a single day. This tour includes visits to Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Basilica, Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. Better than skipping the line at the entrance to these attractions is the fact that you can take advantage of the No Wait Access special entrance at the Vatican and enjoy skip the line access to all other venues. In addition, the tour routes, specifically designed by expert local guides, will save you the time you would've spent waiting in lines and have more time to enjoy the sites.

Colosseum

Start your adventure at the Colosseum, one of the world’s most iconic sights. The guides, who are experts in history and archaeology, will take you back to ancient times recounting the battles and politics that played out here and how this incredible amphitheater once hosted re-enactments of sea battles. No visit to ancient Rome would be complete without going a little further back to its origin. You will explore Palatine Hill, where Romulus founded the city that would become Rome, and the Roman Forum, the economic and political heart of Ancient Rome.

Vatican Museums

Follow a carefully planned itinerary throughout the Vatican Museums, visiting the most famous rooms, such as the Sistine Chapel and the Raphael Rooms, plus a wide variety of galleries full of ancient sculptures, tapestries, medieval maps, paintings, and precious relics.

Your expert English-speaking guide will teach you about the personalities and stories behind the artworks – bringing an ancient collection to life. You will learn about the hidden details in Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes, such as the punishing way he painted his enemies as well as his own personal message to the Pope. From the Sistine Chapel, you will enter directly to St. Peter’s Basilica, to visit the stunning masterpieces that lie within. You will see Michelangelo’s Pieta and the magnificent altar, not to mention the basilica itself and its impressive dome which is one of the largest in the world.

In between the tours, enjoy some free time on your own to have lunch at a local restaurant or go for a stroll in the center of Rome, experiencing the Roman lifestyle.
