Immerse yourself in one of history’s biggest relics with a tour through the Vatican (8am Early Bird Vatican entry available in Summer!) and self-guided Colosseum walk. Wander through important historical sites including the Vatican and its museums, the Sistine Chapel, the ‘Vatacombs’ (with access to the Papal Sarcophagi) and St. Peter’s Basilica. After the tour, enjoy a self-guided walk through the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. This tour allows you to skip the lines for both visits, allowing more time among the antiquities.
Uncover the magic of Roman antiquities and immerse yourself in history during this guided Vatican tour and self-guided ticketed Colosseum and ancient Rome experience.
Start at the world-famous Vatican with a guided tour through its famous museums. See the "Vatacombs" Papal Sarcophagi, historic St. Peter’s Basilica and the stunning Sistine Chapel. "Skip the line" access offers a more direct route to the monuments without any unnecessary waiting. Tickets to the Colosseum will be provided upon checking in for this tour.
At the end of your guided Vatican tour, head over to the magnificent Colosseum amphitheatre, or if you prefer (as we strongly advise), see the Colosseum and ancient Roman archaeological areas on the next day instead. Explore the relic at your leisure, again enjoying fast-track "skip the line" access, then wander through the nearby Roman Forum and Palatine Hill to learn more about this history-rich part of the world.
