Peel back layers of time inside the ancient and beautiful Roman Forum where your guide will explain their roles in the rise and demise of Rome! At the Colosseum, get privileged skip the line access through the remarkable Gladiator's Gate! Walk across the arena floor while marveling at the 360-degree view of the Icon of Rome. After exploring the various levels and views, you will be free to wander around the Colosseum on your own until closing time. We reconvene in the afternoon near the Vatican Museums and head straight inside! See all the major works of art by masters such as Perugino, Giotto, Raphael, and of course Michelangelo. Time inside the magnificent Sistine Chapel is the absolute highlight.
