Ancient Rome + Vatican City (intense tour)


This tour is suggested if you have just one day in the Rome and a good stamina (the schedule is quite intense!).

In the morning we'll visit the smallest and richest State in the world, the Vatican City, with its jewels: Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica.
After a lunch in a local restaurant or a quick snack, we'll discover the Ancient Rome, walking around the Forum (the plaza of the Ancient Romans).
We'll finish the day in the Colosseum, admiring the amphitheater in the afternoon, when is less crowded.

--> IMPORTANT <---
the Basilica of St. Peter is a working church, so can close without notice for religious events or security reasons. I'm NOT responsible for this issue, but I'll do my best to provide the tour as described.
