Colosseum, Roman Forum and Vatican full day tour with lunch
Once you've been picked up from your accommodation, you'll enter the colosseum directly, without waiting in line. Inside, your guide will tell you all you need to know about the biggest amphitheater in the world and how the gladiators entertained the crowds with spectacular fights. You'll learn about the complex engineering applied by the Romans to build the most technologically advanced entertainment complex of its time and you'll be taken to the second level of the Colosseum where you'll get to take in the beautiful view of the arena.
Once your visit to the Colosseum is over, you'll proceed into the archaeological site of the Roman Forum: here, you'll stroll by the ruins of ancient temples and Roman mausoleums, such as the Roman senate and the original altar where Julius Caesar’s body was cremated.
From the Forum, an English-speaking driver will take you way across town to explore the world-famous Vatican museums and two of the most important churches in the world: the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. You'll be amazed by the number of masterpieces that will surround you, all by great artists like Michelangelo, Gian Lorenzo Bernini and many more.
At the end of the tour, the guide will take you to the official Vatican gift store where you'll have some free time for shopping. Finally, you will reach the Roman restaurant where you'll enjoy a delicious 2-course lunch.
