Combine two Roman sights, the Colosseum and the Vatican Museum, on this small-group guided tour. With the help of a headset, listen to your guide recount stories of the gladiators and Roman Emperors while exploring the Colosseum. Following a lunch break, meet your guide at the Vatican Museum to admire masterpieces such as the Octagonal Courtyard and the Laocoon. Then, see the Sistine Chapel, admire "The Last Judgement" and "The Creation of the World" frescoes, St.Peter’s Basilica with Baldachin, the Altar of the Cattedra, and the Michelangelo’s "Pietà."
This tour is ideal for first-time visitors to Rome
Visit the Vatican Museum in the afternoon when it’s less crowded
Viator advised us less than 2 days before the visit that it could not go on as planned. I had to insist that they fix this, as they were proposing to split this in 2 different days. But we were in Rome for 1 1/2 days! So they simply inverted the two sections, which should have been the preferred option from the get go.
Nonetheless, the Vatican visit was good, but the heavy accent of the guide made it difficult tu understand all. In the afternoon Colloseum tour, Renata made it very interesting with much details. Her English was impeccable.
