Description

If you are only in Rome for a short time, seeing all the major sights – which are spread across the city – is a challenge. But on this tour led by an expert guide, see it all – including the Colosseum, the Vatican Museums and the Pantheon. With Skip-the-Line access and transfers, get the most from every precious second.

Start at the Colosseum and skip long entrance lines to enjoy a guided tour in a small group of only 15 people. Hear tales of gladiators and emperors as you learn about what life was like in Rome 1,000 years ago, during a 1-hour tour of one of the world's most iconic sites. You won’t go inside the Roman Forum, opting instead to visit a special vantage point which allows you to see it all, away from the crowds.

Next, take to the streets of Rome for a tour of the historic centre with your guide. Visit the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, and Piazza Navona, among other iconic spots, and stop for traditional Italian gelato. After a break for lunch, travel by private transfer to the Vatican Museums and skip the line to bypass long waiting times.

Enjoy a 2.5-hour tour of the best of the Vatican Museums as you admire the Raphael Rooms, the Gallery of the Maps, ancient Greek and Roman sculptures and the Sistine Chapel. Here, opt to stay in the Sistine Chapel or follow your guide through a special guides-only door, and go directly to St Peter’s Basilica without waiting in line.

Excellent trip would highly recommend it. Take plenty of water and good walking shoes. You’re on your feet lots. But thoroughly enjoyed and Sev (our guide) really knew his stuff.

Toni our guide was amazing! Very knowledgeable and informative. The tour was everything I expected - a lot of walking, but a great way to cover many sites if you are short on time. And Toni made the day very comfortable, always trying to walk in the shade and making bathroom stops at clean bathrooms. All in all it was a fabulous day!

This tour was exceptionally well organized and allowed my husband and I to visit all the top destinations in Rome. Our tour guide, Francesca, was extremely knowledgeable and kind. I especially liked how each person was provided a headset to hear our guide the entire time. This service ensured we didn't miss a thing and helped keep our group together in the busy tourist spots. If you only have a short time in Rome, this is the way to see it for sure.
