Overview

Our 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, English-speaking private 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 meet your private guide at the Colosseum, where you will enter with skip the line tickets. Your guide will lead you inside the first and second level of the Colosseum, explaining all about this monument history and the spectacular fightings that took place inside.

Our guides are expert in the history of Ancient Rome and will carefully describe how life in the Ancient Rome 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? Don’t worry: the Vatican is a country of its own, but you don’t need 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 works that you or your guide will deem the most important. Please remember that because this a private tour, you can ask your guide all the questions you want 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 an access that brings you directly to 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.

We had a great time and going to see the Vatican early in the morning is the best option. Remember to dress appropriately and wear comfortable shoes.

Couldn't possibly have visited Rome without doing this tour and I don't think we would have got as much out of the experience without the skip the line and private guide.

We took a guided tour of The Vatican museum, The Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica with an amazing guide who really knew what she was talking about. Seeing the Vatican in the morning is a must and having you own private guide was the icing on the cake. Thank you.

We booked all of our tours before we came to Italy. This is the only private tour that we booked as we wanted to get the most out of our experience when we went to the Vatican. All of the tours were good, but this one was fantastic. Our guide met us in the morning and we did not have to wait in the large queues that were already starting. I really do not think that you can enjoy the Vatican in large group tours because if you do not keep up you will miss a lot of what is being said. I highly recommend this company and would not hesitate to use them again.

This turned out to be the most amazing tour we have ever taken. We went seemingly everywhere, for over 3 hours. Every question was answered. Our guide took extra time to ensure I understood and to ensure that we both understood exactly what we were seeing and its significance.
