The tour begins in the morning at the Vatican, where your guide will lead you on an insightful journey through its iconic sights and artworks. Visit St. Peter's Basilica, the supposed burial site of its namesake, then tour the masterpieces of the Vatican Museums, including perhaps its most renowned, Michelangelo's frescoes on the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
Leaving Vatican City, head for the Colosseum in the afternoon to tour the Roman Empire's largest amphitheater. Then visit the archaeological sites surrounding it, including the Palatine Hill and the Roman Fora, where the ruins of some of the City's ancient government buildings can still be seen.
After taking this tour, you will boast a comprehensive knowledge of Rome's history and culture. Do not miss out on this great opportunity.
