Begin your first tour near the Vatican museums in the morning. Meet your guide and then begin discovering of the wonders of the museums including courtyards, galleries of marble sculptures, tapestries, chandeliers, and ancient maps, and the Sistine Chapel.

Take some time to absorb the beauty of Michelangelo’s masterpieces, like the Last Judgement and the Creation of Adam before continuing to St. Peter’s Basilica. Take a private route that allows you to skip the line. Inside the church, your guide will shed light on the Basilica’s extraordinary artistic heritage, which includes Michelangelo’s Pietà, works of the famous sculptor Antonio Canova, Bernini’s Baldacchino, and many others. Your journey through the Vatican’s past will end in St. Peter’s square between the two fountains and Bernini’s 284 columns.

The group will disperse so you can have lunch and rest before making your own way to the meeting point for the second tour. Transportation between the two tours is not provided.

Meet back up with your guide at the exit of the Colosseum’s metro station. This tour will encompass the sites that witnessed the birth of Rome. Walking through the Forum, be surrounded by monumental arches, symbols of victories in battle and temples built to honor the gods.

The first and most important landmark to visit is the Colosseum. Even today it remains the largest arena in the world and an iconic emblem of the city of Rome. Enter the Colosseum via the private group entrance thereby skipping the line and enjoy more time to appreciate the ancient glory of its first and second inner levels.

Leaving the archeological area, head to the Capitoline Hill, the current headquarters of the Municipality of Rome which is set in the stunning square designed by Michelangelo. Here the tour will end, standing on a terrace that overlooks all of ancient Rome, with breathtaking views of the Forum.
