Our Combo Colosseum and Vatican Private Tour is the best solution to visit the two most visited sites in Rome in just one day. This is the best tour if you want to maximise your time in the Eternal City, but still enjoy the explanations of a private, licensed guide!
Visit the two most popular highlights in Rome in just five hours, accompanied by a local, professional guide. This combo tour is perfect for all those who have limited time in Rome, but still want to make the most out of it.
You will enter the Colosseum directly through the Gladiator’s Gate, with our skip the line tickets. Your guide will lead you inside the Arena, one of the restricted areas of Colosseum, exactly where Gladiators used to fight, then to the first and second level of the Colosseum, explaining all about this monument history and the spectacular fightings that took place in it. Our guides are expert in the history of Ancient Rome and will carefully describe how life was for the population and the emperors, how gladiators were recruited and treated and how they fought between each other and/or wild beasts.
Once your Colosseum adventure is over, you and your guide will take a taxi to the Vatican. Are you ready to enter the smallest country in the world? Do not worry: the Vatican is a country of its own, but you won’t be asked a passport to enter!
Thanks to our pre-booked tickets you will bypass all the lines and you will access the Vatican Museums without wasting your precious time. You will enjoy an express visit of the Vatican Museums, focusing on the art works that you or your guide will deem the most important. Please remember that, being this a private tour, you can ask your guide all the questions you wish and focus on the works that capture your attention the most.
You will then proceed to the Sistine Chapel, to admire in silence the magnificent frescoes by Michelangelo that adorn the walls and ceiling of the huge room. Guides are not allowed to explain inside the Chapel, but they will do it beforehand, letting you admire it in peace and quiet, as this masterpiece deserves. Time to enter St Peter’s Basilica, once again skipping all lines, thanks to a privileged access that brings you directly in the Church from the Sistine Chapel. Your tour of the Colosseum and Vatican will finish in the legendary St Peter’s Square, enclosed by the monumental colonnade by Bernini.
