Rome is a can't-miss destination in Italy, and this elite status can come with enormous crowds. Avoid wasting your limited vacation time waiting in long entry lines by booking skip-the-line tours at the city's top sights. Here are your options.
Skip the Line at the Vatican Museums
The vast halls and rooms inside the Vatican Museums contain important artifacts and world-famous works of art, but the lines to get in can take hours to get through. With a skip-the-line Vatican Museums tour, you'll be able to follow the guide through the tour groups entrance, which always has the shortest line. For a truly VIP experience, choose a tour that includes access to the museums and the stunning Sistine Chapel either before the doors open in the morning or after the museum is closed.
Skip the Line at the Colosseum
The Colosseum is Rome's most recognizable monument, and the line to get inside often stretches around the amphitheater's perimeter. Not only do skip-the-line Colosseum tours allow you to skirt that line and use a different entrance, many also grant you access to parts of the structure the general public won't see—including the underground chambers and the upper tiers, the latter of which offer spectacular views.
Combo Skip-the-Line Tours
Check off multiple must-sees with a skip-the-line combo tour. Cover all the bases in Vatican City with a skip-the-line tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica, or explore ancient Rome with a visit to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum after skipping the line at the Colosseum.
