Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Sistine Chapel, Citta del Vaticano 1, 00120 Vatican City Italy

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, Viale Vaticano, 00120 Vatican City Italy

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, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

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, Piazza di San Pietro, 00120 Vatican City Italy

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, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

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.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Palatine Hill, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

The guides were wonderful and very knowledgeable and helpful. It's definitely worth it to skip the line - it looked like it was about 2 hours long at the Vatican Museum.

They were well organized. Glad I paid to skip the line as the lines were long. Both of our guides were very knowledge and kept a good eye on everyone as it was very crowded and easy to get lost in the crowd. Lunch was good and as a bonus we had an opera singer at lunch time.
