Description

The tour begins at 8:45am, with ancient Rome in the morning and the Vatican in the afternoon.

Morning Tour: The Colosseum and the Gems of Rome
Walk in the shoes of famous gladiators like Commodus and Spartacus, and prominent leaders, Julius Caesar and Augustus, in this first 3-hour skip the line tour.

Imagine yourself in the center of a large arena with over 60,000 chanting spectators ready to watch you in all your glory – welcome to the Colosseum. This iconic symbol of Imperial Rome was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on classical mythology.

Next, you will walk along the Imperial Forum, a series of public squares constructed between 46 B.C. and 113 A.D, to reach Piazza Venezia. This square still celebrates the Unification of Italy with its imposing national monument, the Vittoriano.

With your local guide you will stop in Torre di Largo Argentina to meditate on the place where Julius Caesar was assassinated. From here move to Piazza della Rotonda where you will find in front of you one of the most beautiful and best-preserved buildings from ancient times, the Pantheon. Its story begins nearly 2,000 years ago when Agrippa, faithful friend of Augustus had a temple which was dedicated to all gods in the heavens. In those days it looked very different. It was Hadrian who rebuilt the Pantheon as you see it now.

Finish the tour in Piazza Navona, one of the most elegant squares in the world, a symbol of the Roman Baroque.

Evening Tour: The Vatican Museums with Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica
Head for Vatican City, the smallest but probably the most famous city state in the world. Go on a fun and educational tour of the vast Vatican Museums, which began as the private collection of the popes. See ancient statues from Egypt, Greece, and Rome, sarcophagus, busts, frescoes, and tapestries, as well as paintings made in nearly every period throughout history.

The last stop on the Vatican Museums tour is the Sistine Chapel, frescoed by Michelangelo. Next, follow your tour guide into St Peter’s Basilica. This church is rich in works of art and monuments. Don't miss the canopy by Bernini, the bronze statue of St. Peter, or the Pietà by Michelangelo.

Leave the church and look at the center where there is the obelisk brought from Egypt. At the end, turn around St. Peter's Square to enjoy the magnificent colonnade by Bernini that seems almost to wrap you in an embrace.
