Skip the Line to the Vatican & the Colosseum
Skip the long line at the Vatican with priority access and see all the major artistic and architectural highlights inside Vatican City.

Our entire Vatican tour covers the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, the Vatacombs, where you'll see the underground tombs of former Popes, and St. Peter's Basilica, all in about three hours.

You can read more about the tour itinerary for your Vatican tour here: Vatican Museums, Vatacombs, and St. Peter's.

After your tour of the Vatican, you'll get your timed skip-the-line ticket to the Colosseum and directions for how to reach the Colosseum from the Vatican City.

When you arrive at the Colosseum there will be two lines at the entrance, a very long line for people without tickets, and a short line or no line at all for you to walk straight into the Flavian Amphitheatre.

We recommend that you spend between two and three hours in the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill archaeological areas. Please keep in mind that each site operates a strict no re-entry policy.
