What to expect

Walk in the footsteps of Roman emperors and citizens. Skip the long line at the entrance and access the Roman Forum through a dedicated VIP entrance where you will enjoy breathtaking views over the archeological site. Walk along the Via Sacra ("sacred road"), immerse yourself in Roman history and reach the temple, which houses the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated. Visitors from around the world still leave flowers and candles at the site to this day. Enjoy the Roman Forum and the Palatine on your own for approximately 1 hour and then meet your guide at the Colosseum.

Once inside the Colosseum, your expert guide will teach you about the amphitheater's bloody past, with tales of gladiators, mock sea battles, and executions.

Then, take a journey through the Vatican City’s highlights. Explore the Vatican Museums, see the spectacular Sistine Chapel and tour the interior of St. Peter's Basilica with skip-the-line tickets. This excursion into the Vatican’s legendary art and architecture starts at the Vatican Museums, which house the most important ancient art collection in the world. Your guide will lead you to the best galleries to see frescoes, statues, tapestries, and historical maps. Here, you will also find the Borgia Apartment, La Pinacoteca Vaticana and the beautiful Vatican Library.

Continue to the Sistine Chapel to admire masterpieces by Michelangelo, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio, Pinturicchio, and Perugino. Then, you’ll get to St. Peter’s Basilica ascending Bernini’s Royal Staircase, a masterwork of architectural achievement rebuilt in the 16th and 17th centuries.
