Your experience


The Vatican and the Colosseum in Rome are two of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe. You'll want to be sure that you won't spend precious holiday hours in sweaty queues - and we have just the right thing for you

The only one-day tour that includes both the Vatican and the Colosseum, this comprehensive, expertly guided Roman walking program includes the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill without long waits.

First stop, the famous works of art housed in the Vatican Museum. Standing in amazement under the ceiling of Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel, they look around the Raphael Rooms and peer over ancient sculptures, medieval maps and pristine paintings.

The eye-widening frescos of the chapel are infused with hidden secrets. Fortunately, your English-speaking tour guide is well versed in 16th century art and will be happy to reveal the hidden details.

Next comes St. Peter's Church and some more masterpieces of hunting. Visit Michelangelo's Pietà and its magnificent dome, one of the largest in the world. After lunch and a break from the successes of the Renaissance, it is time to head to the Colosseum.

Cruel battles took place in Rome's ancient arena, and your guide will provide you with all the facts and details about this wonder of Roman architecture, which once housed up to 50,000 people.

Allegedly raised by wolves, Romulus is said to have founded Rome on the Palatinate Mountain. The history of the beginnings of the Eternal City may or may not be historically correct, but the stories you will hear about ancient aristocrats who heralded each other in the Roman Forum - the political and economic centre of the Empire - certainly are.
