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 at your own pace as you move into the city to reach meeting point with a hop-on/hop-off all-day pass on a comfortable double-decker bus (Buses depart every 15 min approximately). 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, without waiting to enter; you’ll also get a thrilling, in-depth exploration of the iconic Colosseum and other sites of ancient Rome. On each group tour, you’ll be accompanied by an English-speaking expert in Roman art and history. 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, board again on your high speed train and relax while reaching Florence after your journey through the History of Rome.
