    What to Expect
    Your tour begins by meeting your guide at the local tour office near the Colosseum; then walk to the special entrance reserved for members of this tour. 

    Skip the regular lines and maximize your time at the Colosseum as you enter the amphitheater directly onto the arena floor, where gladiators and wild animals engaged in bloody fights. Visit the ring overlooking the underground sections of the Colosseum, and learn about its history from your guide, who has a degree in either art history or archaeology. Listen to anecdotes about the glory days of the arena and the lives of the emperors and senators of the time. 

    Next, leave the Colosseum and walk to Palatine Hill, one of the Seven Hills of Rome, where emperors and other wealthy residents lived. Take in the view of the Roman Forum and Circus Maximus, and then walk down the hill to explore the ruins of the forum, where your guide shares more stories and uses books and 3D pictures to show you how the site looked during the days of Ancient Rome. Your tour ends with return to your starting point.

    We happened to visit on one of the busiest days at the Vatican where the wait to get in was over 4 hours. Our guide took us right to the front and away we went. Best money ever spent. St Peters was originally closed so our guide improvised and added on the Raphael rooms, but

    Thank you for choosing to book our Vatican tour, it is indeed money well spent as our guides are very dedicated, we are happy to know you got to St.Peter's Basilica in the end despite it being initially closed due to Vatican functions.

    What an awesome place, the history, the architecture, do not miss this trip. We arrived early and Rome Private Guides managed to squeeze on an earlier trip. Our tour guide Renata was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. A great trip.
