Pass By:  
Colosseum
After your meet and greet with the English-speaking driver, you will be taken, in one of our luxury vehicles, to the world’s largest amphitheatre and with your “skip the line” ticket, you will proceed directly into the metal detector control. Once inside, the tour guide will bring the Colosseum back to life by explaining how the gladiators entertained the crowds with spectacular fights and show you the complex engineering applied by the Romans to build, what is still considered, as the most technologically advanced, entertainment complex of its time. The guide will then take you to the second level of the Colosseum, where you will enjoy the beautiful view of the arena and all of the seating areas. This includes the exact spot where the emperor enjoyed the shows with his family and the specially reserved marble seats for the Roman senators.

From the Roman Forum, your driver will pick you up and take you way across town to explore the world renowned Vatican museums and two of the most important churches in the world, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. You’re sure to be dazzled by the masterpieces of great artists like Michelangelo with his world-renowned ceiling, “Last Judgment” and Pieta, and Gian Lorenzo Bernini with his twirling bronze baldachin, tomb of Alexander VII, and the many other gorgeous embellishments with which he adorned the interior of St. Peter’s Basilica. During the whole visit, your guide will fill you on the historic, religious and artistic significance of the works and accomplishments, as well as, the stories of the artists themselves. After the tour ends, for those interested in purchasing religious articles or official Vatican products, the tour guide will take you to the official Vatican gift store and eventually show you the nearest taxi station to arrange transportation back.
