Full description
Visit Rome's most-visited monument with a group tour of no more than 12 people. In the morning, learn about ancient Rome's history from a professional tour guide that will bring its walls to life. In the afternoon, visit the astoundingly beautiful Vatican City, home to some of the most famous collections of art and architecture in the world. An expert guide will take you on a journey back in time, recreating the amazing history and mysteries of the largest amphitheater ever constructed in the center of ancient Rome. Your professional guide will bring to life the fantastic art, history, and architecture housed within the walls of this beautiful city's galleries, chapels and rooms. Then, move on to the Sistine Chapel and hear Michelangelo's painted ceiling described in detail in a small semi-private experience. After this, you will be escorted into St. Peter's Basilica with priority access to explore it at your own leisure.
