With our Rome and the Vatican tour you can enjoy an overview of the city of Rome plus a Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel tour with an official licensed guide in one day only.

The main suggested stops of Rome and the Vatican tour include: Piazza Venezia, where you can admire the Monument of Victor Emmanuel (first Italian king) and Mussolini's balcony; the Capitoline hill (the most important of the seven hills) with an amazing view over the Roman Forum; the Colosseum where your driver will give you a brief explanation and history. You will get a chance to go in and explore on your own with pre-booked tickets to avoid the big lines.

Other sites are the Aventine hill and keyhole, Circus Maximus, the Pantheon, Navona square and additional monuments time permitting.

While on tour (depending on the Vatican guide's schedule) we will arrange to meet one of our Vatican guides to take you on the 3 hours visit of the Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel. The museums contain some of the world’s greatest art treasures, and are unique in their scope, quality and abundance. All big lines at the entrance avoided! From the Sistine you'll go directly to St. Peter's Basilica, where you will see the Pietà by Michelangelo and other fantastic masterpieces by Bernini and Canova. Following the visit of St. Peter's you'll want to take some pictures of the square, shop for souvenirs and/or grab a drink.

After such an exciting and interesting day dedicated to Rome and the Vatican tour, you'll enjoy the relaxing ride back to the hotel.
