Full description
In the morning marvel at a collection of paintings and sculptures started by Cardinal Scipione Borghese, housed in his party villa on the outskirts of 17th-century Rome with a skip-the-line ticket to the Borghese Gallery.

Considered one of the most important museums in Rome, the gallery is frequently fully booked and hard to access. Skip the long lines with your pre-reserved ticket and explore the Galleria Borghese's full-of-art 20 rooms. See artifacts from antiquity, including a mosaic of gladiators from 320-330 AD that was found on the Borghese estate at Torrenova. Learn more about the powerful Borghese family and their relationship with Napoleon in the 1800s.

In the afternoon avoid the long lines outside of some of Rome’s most popular ancient attractions and get skip-the-line entry to the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill.

Choose your option according to your time availability and personal preferences.

The tour is led by professional guides who will explain the history of Rome and introduce you to some of the most notorious Roman emperors.

Included with your privileged priority entrance to the archaeological areas are headsets that will help you to hear your guide better. You will visit one of the most famous monuments in the world at the Colosseum, the immense amphitheater that was the largest ever built by the Roman Empire. Imagine the gladiatorial fights and public spectacles that took place in the arena.

You will also go to Palatine Hill, site of the foundation of Rome and settlement of the most important houses of emperors and kings. Located just feet from the Roman Forum and Circus Maximus, it is the focal point of the 7 hills of Rome.

Hear about the legends and history of Eternal Rome and stop on the Via Sacra to learn how everyday Roman citizens used to live. You will also visit the tomb of the emperor Julius Caesar, and explore the ruins of the Roman Forum, center of all Roman government and public life.

Boeiend, interessant, vooral Galleria Borghese

Vooral de rondleiding in de Galleria Borghese viel in de smaak door het enthousiasme van onze gids die ons de hoogtepunten liet zien met heel goede uitleg. De rondleiding Colosseum enz. was inhoudelijk ook boeiend, maar de gids was communicatief minder sterk in die zin dat ze steeds voor zich uitkeek tijdens haar uitleg i.p.v. Ons rechtstreeks aan te spreken.

rep left without us

we arrived 10 mins late for the Borghese tour. The guide had gone in with the group which is understandable, but the rep outside did not wait at all for us even though she knew 3 people had not yet arrived. We tried to call to advise we were late but the office was closed. The tickets could have been left at the ticket office for us, but were not. We ended up having to pay again for new tickets. Colosseum tour in the afternoon was excellent.
