Itinerary

Our tour will start with the smallest country in the world, the Vatican City State. Necessarily I'll do a selection of the best artifacts displayed: Pinecone courtyard; Octagonal Court with the famous Laocoon group; Hall of Muses with the Belvedere Torso; Round Room; Greek Cross Room; Candelabra Gallery; Tapestry Gallery; the Gallery of Maps (by the way my favourite); the unmissable Sistine Chapel; St. Peter Basilica and St. Peter square. Lunch break (Lunch not included). With the driver transfer to ANCIENT ROME (the COLOSSEUM, the largest amphitheatre ever built and model for the modern stadiums; the ROMAN FORUM and PALATINE HILL with ruins of several ancient buildings).

A Recent Review of this tour

Flaminia was fantastic with our two boys and really helped us to get the most out of a very busy day in Rome and Vatican City. Her knowledge of the art and history of all the sites we visited was fantastic. We learned so much in such a short period of time. There is no way you could see as much as we did on a group tour. Private tour was definitely the only way to see Roman and Vatican in one day. Thank you so much Flaminia!
