Rome and Vatican skip the line

We'll start the tour from the ancient Rome section visiting Colosseum, Palatine hill and Forum, discovering how the romans used to live 2000 years ago, walking on the same streets they walked and making the old ruins come alive;then, after a short break for lunch, we'll move to the Vatican, the smallest country in the world, so connected with the history of Rome. We'll visit the Vatican museums, Sistine chapel and the Basilica of St. Peter, discovering how the Christians ruled over the eternal city for many centuries.
The tour will be an incredible experience and a journey through the secrets of Rome with a real roman guide born and raised in Roma: Ennio!

A Recent Review of this tour

We had such a great time on our tour with Ennio. He is very interesting and informed on all the sites we visited. We could not have asked for a better tour guide and would definitely recommend him and Tours By Locals to any of our friends visiting Rome.
