What you'll do

This full-day Colosseum, Vatican, and Sistine Chapel tour is the perfect experience for those who want to pack their day with culture in a short amount of time. I'll handle all of the transportation and reservations, so you'll spend the day skipping long ticket lines, admiring the beauty of ancient ruins and Italian masterpieces, all while keeping an enjoyable pace. We'll begin the day at the iconic Colosseum, exploring the 1st and 2nd levels, while I'll explain this 2,000-year-old stadium's bloody history. Next, we'll visit the Roman Forum (ancient city) and Palatine (Cesar's palace). We'll make stops at the most important ancient temples, Julius Cesar's tomb, the Senate House, and the House of the Vestal Virgins. Following the Forum, a professional driver will transfer us to a neighborhood close to the Vatican where you'll have 1.5-hour break for lunch. I'll provide local tips on where to eat so you're not eating at the touristy places. After you've refueled from lunch, we'll make our way to the greatest collection of art in the world: the Vatican Museum. We'll see ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian sculptures, Renaissance masterpieces by Michaelangelo and Raphael, and finish the museum portion of the tour in the Vatican's crown jewel: the Sistine Chapel. We'll conclude the tour in St. Peter's Basilica, the center of faith for Catholics and the largest church in the world

Your hosts

Originally from the United State I've been lucky enough to call Rome home for the past 11 years! I first came to Rome to study its incredible history, but the charm and excitement of the city have kept me here for over a decade. In 2019 I hosted over 8,000 people from Airbnb. Those experiences gave me a great understanding of the importance of your time in Italy, and with that in mind, I aim to provide reliable and professional experiences to visitors from around the world. Along with my officially licensed, English speaking co-hosts, we'll take care of all reservations so your visit to Rome's greatest sites includes a fun and informative tour while skipping the long lines. We're also happy to share our tips for Rome's best restaurants, cafes, and hard to find gems! Don't hesitate to contact me for any help planning your trip to Italy!
