Full description
Skip the ticket line to the 2000-year-old Roman Colosseum. Once inside, your expert guide will tell you about the Flavian Amphitheater's history in dramatic detail. Walk out onto the Arena Floor and stand where gladiators once fought wild animals. Look up to the stands and imagine what it must’ve felt like to see 60,000 spectators cheering for you. Visit the first and second tiers, before moving onto the Roman Forum which once served as the political and commercial hub of the powerful Roman Empire. Take a quick walk through the ruins of this once thriving district of Rome.

Continue your tour by strolling through the most awe-inspiring piazzas and fountains in the city including the Piazza Navona, Pantheon, and the iconic Trevi Fountain. Experience Rome off-the-beaten-path under the wing of a local guide.

After breaking for lunch, climb aboard your private, luxury transportation and drive directly to the Vatican Museums. Skip the ticket line and visit the Gallery of the Candelabra, Gallery of the Tapestries, and Gallery of the Maps. Experience the Sistine Chapel, the centerpiece of the Vatican Museums in person, the way it was meant to be seen. Stand beneath Michelangelo’s stunning frescoes. Then head to St. Peter's Basilica through a special door. See the statue of St. Peter's, La Pieta and the famed Baldacchino. Bernini's Baldacchino stands 95 feet tall and sits right beneath St. Peter's dome above the papal altar.
