Full description

Start your experience with a visit to the Vatican Museums. Learn about the Vatican’s 4000-year-old history, and see the Galleries of Tapestries, Maps, and Candelabras, before taking a stroll in Bramante’s Pinecone Courtyard. Next, proceed to the Sistine Chapel, and stare in delight at Michelangelo’s famous The Creation of Adam, as well as The Last Judgement. Whilst here you can also spend time taking in the enchantment of the Pope’s private chapel.

At the end of your guided tour in the Sistine Chapel, head to the beautiful St Peter’s Basilica on your own. Here you can admire works like La Pietà, a stunning Michelangelo sculpture created by the artist when he was just 24, as well as Bernini’s Baldacchino.

In the afternoon, move onto the Colosseum for a tour. Admire the engineering and architecture of this fascinating monument, and learn from your guide about the history behind it.

Alessandra guided us on the tour of the Vatican museums telling us the details and highlights of this collection of works of art. Very competent and energetic person. Alessandro guided us to the Colosseum and Imperial Forums, telling us the best of all the history and gems of Ancient Rome which, very often, is known only in a superficial way. Fantastic and recommended tour. Both guides were knowledgeable and helpful.

Our tour guide Katja was super informative, spoke really good German and loosened up the tour with lots of jokes. I've rarely had so much fun on a guided tour and smiled so often. I can only recommend the tour. But you should consider visiting the Colosseum and the Vatican on separate days.

We went with a group of friends and we made the two visits, first we did the Colosseum and in the afternoon the Vatican. At the moment of arriving at the meeting point we found without any problem the tour staff where they assigned us our guide (Silvia). The visit was controlled at all times and was carried out very pleasantly by Silvia, who demonstrated a great knowledge of the place. Her explanations were clear and very pleasant, while she was close to everyone. A ten as a guide and person. Later we moved to the Vatican, the truth is that we would have appreciated having a little more time to travel and to be able to eat in peace. We only had an hour for the transfer. Upon arrival at the meeting point, the guide (Claudia) arrived, which we had to find. Claudia was very nice and knowledgeable about the place, she showed that she enjoyed the place and her work. The visit was long given the huge place.
