An expert English-speaking guide will tell you about the personalities and stories behind the artworks.

    In the early afternoon, we will start the adventure at the Colosseum, one of the world's most iconic sights. Guests will explore Palatine Hill, where Romulus founded the city that would become Rome, and the Roman Forum, the economic and political heart of Ancient Rome.

    • We strongly suggest that you avoid bringing large purses, bags, or backpacks on your tour since large luggage may cause delays because of security checks.
      The Colosseum does not have any cloakroom facilities in which to store such items.
      The Vatican only permits very small bags, and specifically prohibits large bags, tripods, umbrellas, and backpacks. Any such items must be checked into the free luggage storage area which may result in your having to leave the tour early to retrieve them at the entrance.
    • Please note that in case of unexpected closures of some of the areas inside the Museums, the guide may have to modify the itinerary slightly. For example, if some of the internal connecting areas are closed for safety reasons, Raphael's Rooms may be replaced with Pio Clementino Museum, where Laoocon and Apollo Belvedere statues are.
    • We regret that we are unable to accommodate guests with wheelchairs or any impairments requiring special assistance. We are also unable to accommodate strollers or baby carriages on our group tours.
