Immerse yourself in the labyrinthine Vatican Museums on a fully guided and extended Vatican tour followed by a self-guided Colosseum walk! Wander through all the important historical sites including the Vatican and it's museums, the Sistine Chapel, Papal Sarcophagi and St. Peter's Basilica. After the tour, enjoy a self-guided walk through the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill archaeological areas. This is our most popular 2 in 1 tour and it grants you skip the line entrance at both venues, allowing more time among the antiquities.

We begin with the world famous Vatican Museums and a guided tour which covers all the major works of art therein. See the "Vatacombs" (Papal Sarcophagi), the magnificence St. Peter's Basilica and of course the incredible Sistine Chapel ceiling. "Skip the line" access offers a more direct route to the monuments without any unnecessary waiting. Tickets to the Colosseum will be provided upon checking in for your Vatican tour in the morning.

At the end of your guided Vatican tour, make your own way over to the magnificent Colosseum and walk right in! Explore the amphitheatre at your leisure, once again enjoying fast-track "skip the line" access, then wander through the nearby Roman Forum and Palatine Hill archaeological areas to learn more about this fascinating period of history.
