What can I expect?

The 2-in-1 Colosseum and Vatican Tour combines an expert lesson on the history of Rome with the opportunity to do some exploring on your own. It's the perfect mix of guidance and freedom.

Begin with a visit to the Roman Forum archaeological area, where your local guide will verse you on the origins, rise to power, and inevitable decline of the ancient city of Rome, a.k.a. Caput Mundi. Next, head to the Colosseum. Your guide will give you a quick lesson on the Colosseum as they lead you to Gladiator's Gate, an exclusive side entrance with less lines and less stress! When you walk into the arena, you'll be wowed by the magnificence, beauty, and wonder of the amphitheater. 

In the afternoon, you'll get your ticket for the Vatican Museums—and skip the line to get in. Here you can spend up to 2.5 hours, exploring the masterpieces that constitute one of the world's greatest art collections.
