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.

Important Information

We are very pleased to report that Rome is back to business as usual and all our tours are running again. For the time being it will be necessary to wear a mask if the tour you book includes an indoor venue, so please bring one. The good news is that many of our tours take place outdoors or in wide open spaces - all our Pompeii tours and wine tours, our food tour, all our private Rome tours, and St. Peter's Basilica and Dome, for example.

On days immediately surrounding religious holidays at the Vatican, alterations to tours may become necessary due to partial closings of areas normally included in this tour. In the event that the Papal tombs beneath St. Peter's Basilica are closed, the tour of the Basilica itself will be extended and no refunds made.
