Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Vatican Museums, Viale Vaticano, 00120 Vatican City Italy

Start the day with a border crossing into Vatican City, where you’ll breeze past the long lines and through an exclusive partner entrance into the ornate Vatican Museums. More than 200 tour operators have “Skip the Line” entry to the Vatican, but this Official Partner Tour grants you special access through the Private Partner Entrance, which allows you to enter immediately, saving up to four hours during peak season and giving you even more time to explore the beauty of the Museums.


Duration: 2 hours

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

Once inside, you and your small group will enjoy all the highlights of the Vatican with an expert guide by your side. The tour takes in a treasure trove of artistic wonders, from masterworks such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescos and La Pietà in St. Peter’s Basilica to the precious relics, paintings, and tapestries adorning the museums’ gilded galleries. Throughout the tour, your expert, English-speaking guide will share fascinating insights only a local could know.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: St. Peter's Basilica, Piazza di San Pietro, 00120 Vatican City Italy

Guided visit

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

After your Vatican tour, enjoy free time to sample some authentic Italian cuisine (own expense) before meeting your next expert guide for a tour of the historical heart of Ancient Rome. You’ll begin by skipping yet another line to enter the Colosseum immediately. Dominating the center of the Eternal City, this ancient arena puts modern stadiums to shame.

Duration: 2 hours

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

Then your tour continues to the Palatine Hill, where Rome originated in a battle between two brothers. You’ll then be taken from the origin of ancient Rome to its hub: The Forum, that bustling marketplace where business, politics, and religion mixed. No other tour takes you so close to so much of the history, significance, and fabulous riches of Rome.

We did the full day tour featuring the Vatican in the morning, and the Colosseum in the afternoon. Both our guides were extremely knowledgeable, considerate and polite. We enjoyed learning interesting facts about the landmarks and the guides provided a twist that made the visits so much productive. I would highly recommend this tours in the future. Good for all ages.

We loved the tour of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. Our guide Daniella was fantastic. It was a long day. We were very tired by the end of the Colosseum Tour and then walked back to our apartment. About 8.5 miles walked for the day but worth it! Wear comfortable shoes and it is doable.
