Vatican City and Ancient Rome in a Full Day


You'll enjoy a tour of the Eternal City that gives you a deep overview of the city's main points of interest.

Visit the Vatican city in the morning and make it a once-in-a-lifetime experience as, besides being an incredible showcase of art, you will learn about the history and stories of this holy and mysterious Christian Kingdom, with St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museum. Marvel at Michelangelo's frescoes in the Sistine Chapel and hear about the new discoveries on the original messages in his painted "code", stroll where only Popes and crown heads used to walk.

The afternoon will be dedicated to the discovery of the ancient heart of the city, as Rome is also Cesars, gladiators, chariots, centurions, emperors. In the Roman Forum and the Colosseum I'll make the daily life and times of ancient Rome come to life with enthusiasm and humor. You'll relive Roman life, while visiting the archeological sites as a gladiator, emperor, slave, Vestal Virgin, senator, merchant and goddess!

A Recent Review of this tour

Excellent tour! My two sons and I thoroughly enjoyed the Eternal City Tour with Marco. I can't imagine visiting all of the important sites covered on our tour any other way. Out tour began in the Vatican with a wonderful introduction about some of the most historically important things we were going to see and set the stage for our first visit to the Vatican. The same would follow with the tour of the Coliseum and the Roman Forum. I would highly recommend taking this tour with Marco.
