Vatican City Tour Itinerary (small group tour, 3 hours): The Vatican Museums - Reaching the Vatican Museums, the guide will give you an overview of the history and art of the smallest state in the World. You’ll walk through cavernous galleries filled with ancient sculptures, tapestries, maps, and Etruscan antiquities. The most famous frescoes in the world will greet you when you enter the jewel box of the Sistine Chapel. Here, you’ll be surrounded by the stunning Michelangelo masterpieces —including the nine central panels of the chapel ceiling, each depicting a tale from Genesis (the most famous being The Creation of Adam). Last but not least you’ll see the grand cathedral that sits atop the very spot where St. Peter was buried. On this self-guided part of the tour, you’ll see the church’s chapels and elaborately painted, multi-domed ceiling; also, Michelangelo’s remarkable Pietà. Colosseum & Ancient Rome Tour Itinerary (small group guided tour; 2.5 hours): The Colosseum On this smaller-group tour, you’ll meet your guide near the entrance to The Colosseum—the extraordinary amphitheater was ancient Rome’s center of public entertainment. Before you enter, your guide will give you a thorough history lesson about the site, including the gladiatorial clashes, wild-animal fights, and mock-naval battles that were once staged here. Once you’re inside, you’ll wander remnants of the seating arcades that once fit 50,000 spectators. The Roman: Forum Next, you’ll explore the onetime cultural, economic, and political center of ancient Rome, the Roman Forum. You’ll walk along the Via Sacra, tracing the paths of ancient military processions and political rallies. Palatine Hill: According to legend, the twins Romulus and Remus first decided to begin building the city of Rome atop this impressive hill.
