What to expect: The Vatican
To begin with, before your tour through the Vatican, you must select the preferred time you’d like to visit the Colosseum. You can choose an hour on the same day or the next, as long as it is within 24 hours of your entrance to The Vatican.
Within the Vatican museums exists a world of stunning sculptures and impressive displays of art. Around every corner, hidden gems are waiting to be explored. A roughly two-hour guided tour through the museums of The Vatican and the Sistine Chapel sets you up with the knowledge and understanding to fully appreciate all of the masterpieces around.
Exclusive to guided tour groups is direct access to St. Peter’s Basilica through the secret corridor. This is a bonus which saves you around two and a half hours! There’s no need to exit the complex, making your way around the buildings to St. Peter’s Square where you would need to wait another time in the long queue. Once inside the Basilica, you’re free to spend as long as you’d like admiring the beauty.
Discover Ancient Rome
When you’ve had your fill at St. Peter’s Basilica, make your way to the Colosseum by public transport, on foot, or using your 20€ My Taxi voucher. Remember, your ticket for the Colosseum is valid for the specific time you previously selected before you entered The Vatican. On the roughly one-hour guided tour around the first and second rings of the Roman amphitheater, you’ll learn about the historical importance and hear fascinating stories of the Ancient Roman structure.
Gasp at the immense size and magnificent construction, built with the manpower of tens of thousands of slaves. At the conclusion of the tour, take your time reflecting and letting your imagination pull you back to a bloody gladiator battle. Afterward, visit the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill; two extra included attractions which are awaiting your arrival.
