Itinerary

Day 1 – Arrive in Rome

Upon arrival at the Rome airport a private car transfers you to your hotel. Check-in and unpack with leisure time to relax and then explore this fascinating city. Accommodation at the hotel Dei Mellini.

Day 2 – The Vatican

Visit all of the most important sights of the Vatican and more in the most relaxed and comfortable way, with our unique Semi-Private Vatican Tour. You’ll enter the Museums before the general public so you’ll be ahead of the pack on your journey through this incredible Mecca. With commentary from your expert English-speaking guide you’ll understand better the incredible masterpieces held within this 9-mile collection, a fact you’ll appreciate all the more when you get to the Sistine Chapel. Admire Michelangelo’s beautiful frescoes and pick out the quirks and stories your guide told you about, one of many self-portraits perhaps, or a personal enemy suffering a strange death. From the Sistine Chapel we use a special entrance to access St. Peter’s Basilica directly, bypassing another long line. Your guided tour continues inside where we visit Michelangelo’s Pieta and see the colossal Basilica dome, even more impressive when you understand just how long it took to build. Accommodation at the hotel Dei Mellini.

For the first time in history, access has been opened to the underground level of the Colosseum. Tours also explore the highest ‘third tier’ level, now open for the first time since the 1970s.

Then climb to the third tier and finally understand the magnitude of the Colosseum as you marvel over spectacular panoramic views of the amphitheater as well as the nearby Palatine Hill and Roman Forum! Your journey through Ancient Rome will also take you to the Roman Forum to the marketplace that once bustled with life, the Via Sacra which was once walked on by Caesar’s army returning home from war and the burial place of Caesar himself.
