Why Travellers Choose This Tour

Cover thousands of years of history with two fast-track guided tours of the Vatican and Colosseum, plus free time for lunch.
Meet a guide near the Vatican Museums, then walk right past the line on your way into the site, which is the official museum of Vatican City. Begin a 3-hour tour of the Vatican Museum’s artistic highlights, including courtyards, galleries of marble sculptures, tapestries, chandeliers, and ancient maps.

Enter the Sistine Chapel, and take some time to explore Michelangelo’s masterpiece frescoes, with the Last Judgment and the Creation of Adam high above the room. Follow a private route that links the Sistine Chapel with St. Peter’s Basilica, where you’ll finish the tour of the Vatican Museums by taking in the remarkable artwork and design element inside the church.

After your time at the Vatican Museums, you’ll have a break to eat lunch and relax, then hop a metro or hail a taxi to the next meeting point, outside the Colosseum.

Your 3-hour afternoon tour is all about ancient history, starting with the the largest amphitheater ever built, where Romans once watched gladiatorial conflicts and performances. You’ll learn about the Colosseum’s architecture and history, with time to see both the first and second tiers. From the Colosseum, continue to Capitoline Hill, where the tour concludes on a terrace with views across the ancient Roman Forum.

The tour guide was amazing. He was very informative, entertaining, and respectful of our time. The Colosseum was magnificently described by the tour guide who also gave us many opportunities and time to take pictures of the historical sites. I would highly recommend this our.

These two tours were very informative, but the guides were totally different. Our guide for the Vatican portion was very difficult to understand at first, but was a little bit easier as the tour went on. On top of the problem understanding him, he was a bit pompous.

The Colosseum tour was amazing! Alfredo was so knowledgeable - he has a degree in Ancient Roman Archaeology or something like that, and it is obvious! He was easy to understand, fun, engaging and obviously loves what he does. He is the reason that our two teenage daughters, who were getting tired of seeing ruins, stayed through the whole tour.
