Know More about this tourYour small group Rome and Vatican tour begins in the morning. Meet up with a friendly, professional guide at a designated meeting spot in Rome’s ancient city. The first stop will be at the famous Colosseum, formerly home to violent gladiator fights and captives. Learn about this unique history and then travel up Via Sacra to the Roman Forum to get a glimpse of life during the reign of dictator Gaius Julius Caesar and Emperor Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus. Listen as the guide explains the rapid growth of the Roman Empire and its eventual demise.
Next, head to the famously lucky Trevi fountain (recently restored by Fendi) and the Pantheon, a pagan temple in ancient times and final resting place of Raphael Sanzio da Urbino, Vittorio Emanuele II, and Umberto I. Stare at the oculus and marvel at the most spectacular building in Rome while the guide explains Pantheon architecture and the inscriptions on the building. Walk a few short steps further and arrive at Piazza Navona, the Circus of Domitian in antiquity where the fierce rivals Gian Lorenzo Bernini (Fountain of the Four Rivers) and Francesco Borromini (Church of St Agnes in Agony) clashed through their representations of Baroque art. Now the square is populated by street artists, actors and small markets, making it a fun place to stop and rest.
The afternoon will be spent on a guided tour of Vatican City’s famous sacred spaces, including he Pio-Clementine Museum, Room of the Muses, Round Room, Greek Cross Room, Gallery of Tapestries, Gallery of Maps, Raphael's Rooms and Sistine Chapel. Then head outside to St. Peter’s Square where the tour will conclude. ‘Skip-the-line’ access to St. Peter’s Basilica will be provided by the guide should you wish to visit the church on your own.
