What to expect

With the help of our greeter board on your high speed train to reach Rome in 1.5 hours. Once arrived in Rome, you can see the highlights of Rome as you move into the city to reach the tour meeting points with a hop-on/hop-off all-day pass on a comfortable double-decker bus.
At the Colosseum, your guide will give you a thorough history lesson about the site, including the gladiatorial clashes, wild-animal fights, and mock-naval battles that were once staged here. Once you’re inside, you’ll wander remnants of the seating arcades that once fit 50,000 spectators. After the Colosseum tour board again on your hop on/hop off bus and reache the meeting point for Vatican tour. Thanks to our special Skip-the-Line access you’ll see all the wonders of the Vatican City, including the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Reaching the Vatican Museums, the guide will give you an overview of the history and art of the smallest state in the World. At the entrance to the Vatican Museums - and skipping right past the long entry lines - you’ll walk through cavernous galleries filled with ancient sculptures, tapestries, maps, and Etruscan antiquities. The most famous frescoes in the world will greet you when you enter the jewel box of the Sistine Chapel. Last but not least, you’ll see the grand cathedral sits atop the very spot where St. Peter was buried. On this self-guided part of the tour, you’ll see the church’s chapels and elaborately painted, multi-domed ceiling; also, Michelangelo’s remarkable Pietà. At the end of the tour, board again on the hop on/hop off bus to reach the Termini station and take yout high speed train to Florence.
