What you'll do

This tour includes visits to Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Basilica, Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. Better than Skip the Line, you will take advantage of our No Wait Access special entrance at the Vatican and enjoy Skip the Line Access to all other venues. In addition, our tour routes, specifically designed by expert local guides, you will save lots of time waiting in lines and have more time to enjoy the sites.

In the morning, you will 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.[readmore]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 the early afternoon, you will start your adventure at the Colosseum, one of the world’s most iconic sights. Our 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.

Get the most from your visit with our small groups so that your guide will be easy to interact with, making it a more intimate experience. Get the most from the Eternal City by visiting its top must-see sites in just one day!
