Experience comfortable luxury transfers and a typical lunch! Be prepared to be amazed by the beauty of Rome thanks to your private Rome guide!
The Colosseum tour starts with the well-preserved Arch of Constantine. First, you will enter the Amphitheatre, a huge fantastic feat of engineering. 50.000 spectators could quickly find their seats, shaded by a huge awning to watch a unique show: brutal fights between gladiators and beasts.
Follow your private Rome guide and witness the memories of a glorious past.
The stately Arch of Titus introduces the panoramic hill of the Palatine, where Emperors lived. Just seeing the view of the area from the Palatine Hill makes the Coliseum tour worthwhile. Walking along “The Sacred Way,” your private Rome guide will show you where Julius Caesar in 46 B.C. inaugurated the Imperial Forums. It is a focal point of ancient Rome, enriched by all Emperors with their Temples and Houses until A.D. 608.
Equally inspiring is the impressive Basilica of Maxentius!
After lunch, your driver will lead you to the Vatican, where you will admire an infinite number of masterpieces by Bernini, Raphael, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Perugino, Pinturicchio, and other treasures.
The numerous Popes that have lived in the Vatican, continuously enriched it by adding countless works of art.
The unmissable Sistine Chapel and its sublime “Last Judgment” by Michelangelo, are undoubtedly the real attraction among the top things to see in Rome.
There is so much to discover visiting the Vatican! Among the galleries, you will surely appreciate the collection of mosaics and ancient Greek and Roman sculptures and the magnificent Raphael Rooms, once the official residence of the Popes.
Thanks to your certified Rome guide, you will enter the 16th century St. Peter’s Basilica through a hidden door. Welcomed by Michelangelo’s “Pietà,” the biggest Christian Church in the world will amaze you!
This part of the tour will leave you with the embrace of the immense curved colonnades of St. Peter’s Square, and the view of the Pope’s Balcony.
Remember to cover knees and shoulders before entering the Sistine Chapel and the Basilica of Sait Peter.
Between 1 pm and 2 pm, you will be offered lunch in a selected restaurant, as included in the tour price. Tour might start either with the Vatican or with the Colosseum Tour
On Sunday and religious holidays, the Vatican city is closed. Due to the high request of the Wow Tour, we designed a Sunday in Rome experience with the Capitoline Museum. The Capitoline Museum looks onto the famous Capitoline Hill, a museum itself. On its top, you enjoy spectacular views over the Roman Forums!
The Capitoline Museum is very dear to the Romans. It houses magnificent sculptures reminding the city’s glorious past, like the bronze originals of the She-Wolf and Marco Aurelio statue. Among the places to visit in Rome, it is on the top of the list also for its Picture Gallery, with masterpieces of Caravaggio among others who wrote Italian art history.
Pick up time is 15 minutes to half an hour before the tour starts, according to your location.
