Let’s take a look at what tours our combo offer includes:

On this 3-hour tour, you will get to visit the highlights of Rome by minivan: Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona.

You can watch the world go by in a local coffee shop and enjoy a complimentary Italian coffee or cappuccino.

Day 1 ) 1.00 pm VATICAN AND SISTINE CHAPEL TOUR – 4 hours
Accompanied by our expert tour guide you will see the most important highlights of the Vatican museum and St Peter’s Basilica
Since you are part of a small tour group, we’ll be able to show you the confined spaces of the Rooms by Raphael – other, larger tour groups are unable to include this on their itinerary. Our tour guide is an expert in art history and will interpret Raphael’s works, including how he expressed his admiration for his great rival, Michelangelo.
A significant portion of the tour will be spent in the Sistine Chapel where you can hear about its transformation into one of the world’s most important artistic creations. We’ll also share the story behind the conflict between two key figures of the Renaissance – Michelangelo and Pope Julius II.
We will spend time in the Vatican museums which hold significant collections of art built up by the Popes throughout the period. The collection includes some of the most renowned structures and masterpieces of Renaissance art in the world.
Then the tour will take you to St. Peter’s Basilica where you can see Bernini’s Papal canopy and Michelangelo’s Pietà. Throughout, our guide will tell you all about the history of the first Pope – the tale of a simple fisherman – through to the extravagance of the renaissance period popes.

Day 2 ) 8.45 am ANCIENT ROME TOUR – 3 hours
During this 3-hour tour you’ll be walking in the company of our licensed expert guide in the Colosseum who will help you visualize what it would have been like to be part of a 50,000 strong audience witnessing the showmanship of the Gladiators. From there you will move on to visit the Palatine Hill and then Constantine’s Arch – a triumphal arch which dates back to 315AD.
And afterwards, you will survey the ruins of the Ancient Roman Forum, where our guide will tell you about the period’s defining historical moments. Through our guides, you will be able to understand exactly what it was like to live in Rome over 2,000 years ago.

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.
