Go for this Full Day Tour and you will get all you need: the Vatican Museums with Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica plus the Colosseum with the Archaeological Area.

Every year millions of tourists want to see the Colosseum first than the rest of the city.
The same goes for the Palatine Hill, not far from the Amphitheater where for the first time, the city boundaries were traced by the well know twins Romulus and Remus. Besides, some ruins of luxurious buildings have preserved wondrous floors as well as massive structures.

Just below, Rome used to light up in the Forum: markets, courts, temples and basilicas were raised during the vast geographical expansion, when the Republic of Rome was turning into the biggest Empire ever existed.

Led by Authorized Guide you may feel that the Colosseum is still alive, vibrating with living force; you imagine you can make eye contact with the gladiators cat-walking down the Arena or hear the echo of the roaring lions; you can dream about strolling on the Palatine Hill, in the shade of pure white porches, eating at plushy banquets arranged by Emperor Domitian and drinking divine nectar resting comfortably on tricliniums; you wish you can meet a Vestal virgin, in the Forum, who walks towards the temple, a Senator out of the Curia, or even visiting the grave of Julius Caesar.

After a lunch break, the tour keeps on with the Vatican Museums, few places in the world can fascinate you as much as they will do.
Every day people access this place and stand with no words before so much wonder and every time you pick up a detail, you have the same pleasure of perfection of art and of human creativity.

You will be captivate by the marbles, the mosaics burning like a flame from the floor: the Apollo Belvedere will fascinate you for the depth of his look and flawless shapes.
The Laoconte will leave you breathless for the wickedness of the huge snakes killing him and for his eyes asking for help in a disarming dignity.

Huge Galleries, Renaissance Tapestries, Geographical Maps directly painted on the walls will lead you to the intensity of the Last Judgment pale blue in the Sistine Chapel that has become an essential reference point of worldwide art.

Ending the tour with a visit to St. Peter’s Basilica means traveling again between words and images, to discover a place that has a special meaning in the history of mankind. The Basilica is the result of the work and intelligence of dozens and dozens of generations along many centuries: the highest synthesis of two thousand years of art, science, creativity and power becoming the incredible case of  amazing masterpieces.

Rather than a tour, it is an amazing and exciting trip, as a symphony involving more instruments at different times to allow visitors to admire it not only with their eyes but also with their heart.
