Full description
The first attractions of this walking tour includes the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica, skipping the queue for all three. An expert guide will accompany you as you discover the endless wonders of the museums - from courtyards, galleries of marble sculptures, tapestries, chandeliers and ancient maps, to the most admired room of them all - the Sistine Chapel. Have time to absorb the beauty of Michelangelo Buonarroti’s masterpieces the Last Judgement and the famous Creation of Adam. Your Vatican tour continues onto St. Peter’s Basilica via a private route that allows you to reach the church without leaving the museum and skipping the queue. Once inside, your guide will enlighten you on the basilica’s extraordinary artistic heritage including Michelangelo’s Pietà, works of the famous sculptor Antonio Canova, Bernini’s Baldacchino and many many others.

Your journey through the Vatican’s past will end in St. Peter’s Basilica. After the tour, there will be time for you to make your way to the meeting point for the second tour, which will begin at the exit of the Colosseum’s metro station. As you walk through the Roman Forum at sunset, another journey into the ancient Roman Empire will begin as your guide reveals the history of its political intrigues, battles and betrayals. Your next few steps will lead you to Piazza Venezia and after, the notorious Trevi Fountain - the largest in Rome and one of the most famous fountains in the world. Newly restored, you will be amazed by the brightness of the white stone and its astonishing beauty.
Making your way through the characteristic Roman streets (which are even more enchanting at night,) reach Piazza della Rotonda - home to the Pantheon. Its famous perforated dome still remains the largest and most significant one ever built. From there, walk towards Piazza Navona, stopping to admire Bernini’s stupendous fountain which will be your last attraction of the day. Go your separate way in one of the most cherished squares in the city, beautifully lit on a magical Roman evening. These two tours will shine light onto two different worlds unknown to you previously, allowing you to catch a glimpse of Rome’s extraordinary ancient past and its fascinating daily life, leaving you enchanted for a lifetime.
