Tour description

They say Rome wasn't built in a day. But who says you can't explore its unmissable highlights in one? Discover the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter’s Basilica as you uncover the Rome of the Popes. Then venture forth to the Colosseum to acquaint yourself with the City of the Caesars.

Your four-hour Sistine Chapel and Colosseum Express Tour is the perfect way to uncover the Eternal City. Your expert, fluent Italian guide will accompany you on a cultural voyage through Rome’s masterpieces from ancient to medieval, and Renaissance to Baroque. The tour begins at the Vatican, a world symbol for spiritual, cultural and political influence.

Behold the Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums

Entering with skip-the-line access, your adventure through the Vatican Museums will introduce you the statues of Laocoon and his ill-fated sons, the Belvedere Torso, the Gallery of Tapestries, the Gallery of Maps and the Candelabra Gallery. And of course there's the highlight: the world-famous Sistine Chapel and its ceiling frescoes by Michelangelo.

Process to Saint Peter’s Basilica

Within the ancient walls of the world's most important church, you'll behold another masterpiece by the Great Master - Michelangelo's Pietà. Behold Bernini’s majestic Baldacchino and admire the mosaics that adorn the basilica walls. Soak in the atmosphere of the Vatican State. For next we'll be journeying back in time to uncover the City of the Caesars.

Your transfer will take you to the Colosseum

On arriving in ancient Rome, we'll step right inside the most famous amphitheater in the world. Your guide will bring to life the story of this almost 2,000 year-old monument. Envisage the spectacles that took place here: the blood-soaked sand, the arena fully flooded to reenact naval battles, even the brutal executions of Christians fed to the lions. Gaze down at the Colosseum Underground as you imagine the chaos above. And finish the tour with a newfound understanding of the two most important periods in the Eternal City's history.
