The Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel & St. Peter’s Square
Beyond being the capital of Italy, Rome is the capital city of the Catholic faith. For centuries, St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican City has been home to the Pope; the incredible art collections of historic popes can be found in the Vatican’s many museums. Millions of people visit the Vatican each year to witness the Pope’s regular liturgies and explore the tremendous relics of the papal legacy.
Your tour will include a visit to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. Featuring the most important frescoes in the world, the Sistine Chapel can be admired only in silence. You’ll be at a loss for words as you gaze upon Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling. Also of note are the Raphael Rooms in the Vatican Museums, four rooms dedicated to the works of the great Renaissance painter and architect.
The Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hill
Transition from masterpieces of the Renaissance to relics of the ancient Roman Empire. Constructed over nineteen centuries ago, the Colosseum stands today as the largest amphitheater in recorded human history.
You’ll walk in the footsteps of gladiators as you explore this enormous ruin; the Colosseum was home to Roman entertainment that included gladiator battles, public executions, and epic recreations of Greek and Roman mythology. Our tour guides put you in the heart of the action, offering vivid depictions of an ancient performance tradition.
