Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Sistine Chapel, Vatican City, Lazio

The Sistine Chapel is one of the most important treasures of the Vatican, of Rome and of the whole world. It is renowned both for its frescoes and for the fact that the Popes are elected here.
What most attracts attention in the Sistine Chapel, however, is not its architecture, but the frescoes that completely decorate its walls and ceiling. Renowned artists such as Botticelli, Perugino and Michelangelo contributed to the wide decoration of the Chapel.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Vatican Museums, Vatican City, Lazio

The Vatican Museums are one of the largest collections of works of art in the world. There is also the Sisitina Chapel which is the place where even today the Conclave is celebrated for the election of the pontiffs and where other solemn papal functions take place.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Colosseum, Rome, Lazio

The Colosseum, originally known as Amphitheatrum Flavium or simply as Amphitheatrum, is the largest amphitheater in the world, located in the center of the city of Rome

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City, Lazio

The grandeur of the seventeenth-century façade of Carlo Maderno makes the idea of ​​the gigantic dimensions of St. Peter's Basilica, still today one of the largest churches in the world. The dome designed by Michelangelo surprises in size and harmony.
Among the many masterpieces, not to be missed is the Pietà by Michelangelo, the work that has been surprising for centuries in terms of technique and emotion.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Roman Forum, Rome, Lazio

It was the area where the public and religious life of ancient Rome took place. With the fall of the Empire, the Roman Forum fell into oblivion and was buried little by little. Although the existence and location of the Forum was already known in the 16th century, excavations began only in the 20th century.

Skip the Line for Vatican and Colosseum are a must! When we arrived at St. Peter's Basilica, the wait to get in was over three hours, and we were able to walk right in! The same can be said for the Vatican Museum and the Colosseum. With the headsets, we were able to enjoy the sites while learning about the history of each area which only enhanced the experience. Our tour guide was able to prepare us for the Sistine Chapel with history and some interesting little facts that made this experience all the more enjoyable as well. I highly recommend lunch, because you are able to stay with your tour group and makes the chances of missing the bus to the second half of the tour less likely. Plus, it was delicious! The tour companies know all the best places!
