Vatican Museums & Colosseum: Full Day Guided Tour + Skip The Line

Avoid the queues as you explore Rome's two most important attractions in one day

Visiting Rome’s Vatican and Colosseum, two of the most popular tourist attractions in Europe, in a day? With this ticket, you will not be spending precious holiday hours in sweaty queues.

The only one-day tour to include both the Vatican and the Colosseum, this all-encompassing, expertly guided Roman ramble includes the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill without the long waits.

The first stop will be the famous artworks housed at the Vatican Museum. Stand in wonder beneath Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling, look around the Raphael Rooms and pore over ancient sculptures, medieval maps and pristine paintings.

The Chapel's eye-widening frescoes are brushed with hidden secrets. Your English-speaking guide knows all about the 16th century art and will be happy to reveal the hidden details. 

Next, we will explore St Peter's Basilica and some more masterpiece hunting. Check out Michelangelo's Pietà and the grandiose dome, one of the largest on Earth. After lunch and some respite from renaissance triumphs, it's finally time to head to the Colosseum.

Rome's ancient arena played host to gruesome battles, and your guide will enlighten you with all the facts and details concerning this wonder of Roman architecture, which formerly held up to 50,000 people.

Allegedly raised by wolves, Romulus is said to have founded Rome at Palatine Hill. The story of the Eternal City's beginnings may or may not be historically accurate, but the tales you will hear about ancient aristocrats growling at each other in the Roman Forum – the political and economic heart of the empire – certainly are.
