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

Ennio was delightful. Extensive knowledge and love of subject were remarkable . Used iPad to to supplement presentation - very helpful to explain architectural design, scale of sites. Very friendly. Good sense of humor. High level of organization made it possible to cover the Colloseum, Palatine Hills, Sistine Chapel & Vatican without spending too much time waiting in line. Also answered general questions about the city, trains etc. Exceeds all expectations! Highly recommend ! Family loved it!
