Full description
Explore some of Rome’s most iconic sights independently and enjoy the unique benefits of skip-the-ticket-line entry. Wave the crowds goodbye when you pick up your exclusive ticket to the Vatican Museums. Enter instantly and receive a complimentary map of the many areas to explore. Discover art and sculptures, including the Sistine Chapel, as you explore at your own pace.

Then, make your way to the Colosseum. Built between 70 A.D. and 80 A.D., it’s here that bloody gladiatorial battles would take place in front of crowds of 50,000 roaring spectators. Enter the Colosseum quickly with your unique skip-the-ticket-line entry, and have plenty of time to wander through this colossal structure.

As this is your day to explore like a VIP, receive privileged access to the Gladiators' Arena entrance. This is the very place that gladiators would walk through into the arena. It’s closed to the public, and only special ticket-holders like yourself are able to access this historic space. To close off your day, make your way towards the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill for a quintessential Roman experience.
