A unique occasion to discover Rome, and its history with Marisa, qualified and local tourist guide
Based on my experience, the best way to enjoy this overwhelming city is to choose to split highlights in two or more half days.
The schedule below is suggested for a first visit. Book my "extended tours" if you want an in-depth tour.

- 8. 30 am Ancient Rome basic tour (3 hours)
Colosseum and the Roman Forum with skip the line tickets
(during spring and summer we can start even at 4 pm)

- 1 pm Vatican City basic tour (3 hours)
Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel
and the St. Peter's Basilica with skip the line tickets

--> IMPORTANT <---
the Basilica of St. Peter is a working church, so can be closed 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.

A Recent Review of this tour

We hired Marisa for two tours (Colosseum and Vatican), her knowledge of the landmarks are incredible and she was fantastic with our two girls (9 and 6). We had such a great time with her and will always remember those tours.
