Description

Looking for a fun way to explore both Vatican City and Ancient Rome in a single day? Book this combo and save on the cost of booking these experiences separately. 

Your morning begins with a guided Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel & St. Peter's Basilica tour in comfortably sized groups of 20 people or less. You'll be provided with top-of-the-line headsets to make it easy to keep up with all of the interesting tidbits your perfect English speaking guide will share.

We'll whisk you through our No-Line access point of the Vatican Museums and immediately dive into the wonders masters such as Michelangelo & Rafael have left for us. Highlights include stops at the Pinecone Courtyard, Belvedere Courtyard, Room of the Muses, the Round Room, Greek Cross Room, Candelabra Gallery, Gallery of the Tapestries and even the Gallery of the Maps from where you can also admire a view of the Vatican Gardens below. 

The highlight of your visit inside the Vatican Museums is the Sistine Chapel, where you will have free time to admire the most prized work of Michelangelo’s career. Rules are rules, and your guide won't be able to speak while inside but will prepare you ahead of time to  fully appreciate the importance and scope of this odyssey of art & history. From the exit of the Sistine Chapel, you will be granted direct no-line access to St. Peter’s Basilica where you will have a full guided tour inside.

Enjoy free time from 12:15PM until the 3:00PM start time of your afternoon Ancient Rome Segway Tour (Express Ancient Rome Segway Tour from July 1, 2018). We recommend grabbing a leisurely lunch (own expense) and that you begin making your way to the meeting point of the Segway portion of the tour,  located near the Colosseum. Upon arrival, you'll participate in a training session to learn how to ride your personal Segway PT before embarking on a exploration of the main attractions of Ancient Rome. 

Ride past the Palatine Hill, and imagine chariot races at the Circus Maximus. See the Roman Forum to learn about what those ruins once were, from temples to government buildings and more. Glide around the perimeter of the Colosseum and enjoy a photo-op of the ancient amphitheater to conclude the tour.
