Know More about this tour

Start your Vatican And Colosseum Combo tour with the Vatican Museums by breezing past the long lines and stepping through an exclusive partner entrance. More than 200 tour operators have skip-the-line entry to the Vatican, but this Official Partner Tour grants you special access through the Private Partner Entrance, allowing you to enter immediately, saving up to four hours during peak season and giving you even more time to explore the beauty of the museums.

Once inside, you and your small group will enjoy all the highlights of the Vatican with an expert guide by your side. The tour takes in a treasure trove of artistic wonders, from masterworks such as Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel frescoes and La Pieta in St. Peter’s Basilica to the precious relics, paintings, and tapestries adorning the museums gilded galleries. Throughout the tour, your expert, English-speaking guide will share fascinating insights, only a local would know.

After your Vatican tour, enjoy some free time to sample some authentic Italian cuisine (not included in the tour). The guide in tow will promptly suggest you some good restaurants. Then meet your next expert guide for a tour of the historical heart of Ancient Rome. You will begin by skipping yet another line to enter the Colosseum immediately. Dominating the center of the Eternal City, this ancient arena puts modern stadiums to shame.

Then your tour continues to the Palatine Hill, where Rome originated in a battle between two brothers. You will then be taken from the origin of ancient Rome to its hub: The Forum, that bustling marketplace where business, politics, and religion are all mixed. No other tour takes you so close to the history, significance, and fabulous riches of Rome.
