Your journey will start in front of the Vatican Museums. Here you will find your guide who will whisk you through the infinite lines for tickets thanks to our Skip the Line entrance. Discover one of the most precious art collections in the world. Your guide will escort you through the seemingly infinite corridors and halls of the Vatican Museums while delighting you with stories, myths, legends, and secrets of the smallest country in the world. After admiring unique pieces of art, statues, paintings, amazing tapestries, and much more, you 'll get to the "Star" of the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel. Here you 'll have some time to explore the many frescoes that decorate the chapel, such as the ceiling, which depicts episodes from the Old Testament and Michelangelo 's Last Judgment. Once outside of the Sistine Chapel, your guide will take you through a secret passage, ending up directly inside of the St. Peter 's Basilica, home to Michelangelo 's Pietà, and Bernini 's bronze Baldachin.
The best way to discover a new city is with a local professional guide. That's why we believe that only the best should accompany you on this journey, making sure that you leave with great memories! Your Vatican part of the tour has come to an end, so hop aboard your car or hail a taxi, and continue towards the Colosseum. Take advantage of our Skip the Line entrance and start discovering what was once the most significant arena of the Ancient World. Follow your guide to the arena , and feel like a gladiator. Try to imagine the tiers of the Colosseum filled with people, cheering the gladiators during their battles! Once outside of the Colosseum, you'll head to the Spanish Steps , a monumental stairway of 174 steps. This is the perfect location for a Roman Holidays postcard or an #InstaPic. Follow your guide towards the Trevi Fountain , the main set of Fellini's movie La Dolce Vita , and one of the last fountains that bring water to the city through an ancient aqueduct. Don't forget to toss a coin in the fountain: one to come back to Rome, two to come back and find true love, and three to come back and stay! Your walking tour continues, and while your guide delights you with the various stories and urban legends, try to imagine how the city looked like centuries ago. You'll arrive at Piazza Rotonda , where you'll stop in front of the Pantheon , the temple in honor of all the Gods, and one of the most interesting buildings due to the fact that the height of the oculus and the diameter of the interior circle is the same, 43 meter (approximately 142 ft).
Follow your guide through the narrow streets of Rome, while exploring the different buildings that decorate the city, representing the overlaying of different artistic currents and periods. Your next and final stop is Piazza Navona. Built on top of what was once the Stadium of Emperor Domitian , Piazza Navona takes its name from the Italian word nave (ship), due to the 18th century tradition of filling the square with water and hosting battleships, and is the home to Bernini 's Fountain of the Four Rivers, as well as his rival's, Bramante , Sant ' Agnese in Agone church. Because we want you to make the most of your Roman stay, we offer the possibility of extending and tailoring the tour just for you! Please contact us if you 'd wish to continue your trip and visit other off-the-beaten tracks attractions, such as the Bocca Della Verità, the Circus Maximus, or the Aventine Hill with the unique keyhole of the Malta Knights Palace.
