Full description
Visit the Colosseum, one of the most iconic structures in the world. Skip the ticket line to access the Colosseum quickly and easily. Learn about the architecture and history of this massive amphitheater, which hosted senators, emperors, and gladiators, as well as animals from all over the world. You'll have the opportunity to visit Palatine Hill, site of the foundation of Rome, followed by exploring the Roman Forum site. Make your own way to the Vatican Museums. The complex is home to 54 different galleries and four statue museums: Museo Pio-Clementino, Museo Chiaramonti, Museo Gregoriano Etrusco and the Museo Gregoriano Egiziano. See some of the most famous works of art in the world, from artists including Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Carvaggio, Raphael and Giotto, to name a few. The 54th gallery of the Vatican Museums is the famed Sistine Chapel, completed around 1483. View many of the most famous frescoes in the world, including the famous ceiling and "The Last Judgement" painted by Michelangelo. The Sistine Chapel holds some of the world's most precious works of art, but is also used for the papal conclave, the process through which a new pope is chosen.
