About
Visit Rome's most visited monument with a max 12 people group tour that makes it easy and fun for everyone. In the morning, learn about ancient Rome's history from a professional tour guide that will bring the stones to life and in the afternoon, enter to the astoundingly beautiful Vatican City, home to some of the most famous collections of art & architecture in the world. An expert guide will take you on a journey back in time, recreating the amazing history and mysteries of the largest amphitheatre ever constructed in the centre of ancient Rome. Your professional guide will bring to life the fantastic art, history and architecture housed within the walls of this beautiful city's 7 km of galleries, chapels and rooms. Then move on to the Sistine Chapel and see Michelangelo painted ceiling described in detail in a small semi-private experience. After this, you will be escorted in St. Peters Basilica from a priority access to explore it at your own leisure.
