Overview

"Best of Rome & Vatican" is a journey through Rome of the Caesars and all the highlights inside the Vatican Museums! This is THE must-do tour in Italy at a super-low price!

Enter the Colosseum and learn about the making of a gladiator and what the games meant to the Romans, then walk up ancient Via Sacra into the Roman Forum. Rich in history, archaeology and mythology, your guide will bring the ancient city back to life, demonstrating how the Roman Empire became so powerful and the complex chain of events which led to it's decline.

In the afternoon you will walk past the public waiting line straight into the Vatican Museums and see all the major works of art by masters such as Perugino, Giotto, Raphael and of course Michelangelo. Time inside the magnificent Sistine Chapel is the absolute highlight.

On St. Peter's Square your guide will relate the origins of the Vatican City State and Swiss Guard. At the end of the tour you will be free to visit the Basilica of St. Peter and see Michelangelo's beautiful Pieta’, Dome, and Baldacchino.

Meeting point info will be sent in booking confirmation e-mail. For security reasons, backpacks, rucksacks, large handbags, luggage etc. are banned inside the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill.
