We only were in Rome for 3 days therefore, spending two of those days getting to see as much as possible in that time was a great experience. I truly felt like we got to experience all the highlights of Rome over the course of the two day tour.

We went to all of the highlights of the city in a short amount of time and it was great to have "skip the line" tickets to the main attractions such as The Vatican museum and the Coliseum and Forum.
