Don't limit yourself to visiting one famous Roman attraction! Make the most of your time in the Imperial City and enjoy its two most famous locations – The Vatican and the Colosseum.

This convenient package bundles together both options and allows you to visit five incredible sites in Rome: The Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. On top of that, you'll also get a smartphone audio guide of Rome as part of the deal.

Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel: Skip The Line with Optional Audio Guide

These skip-the-line tickets to the Vatican City's artistic highlights let you breeze past the long lines waiting to step inside the Vatican and head straight for the entrance. No waiting, just wall-to-wall masterpieces.

Use the extra time you would have spent in line to visit all four remarkable collections: classical sculpture, Renaissance masterpieces, and stunning artifacts from Ancient Egypt and the Etruscans.

After passing the Pine Cone, end your tour by admiring the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo created more than 300 figures on over 500 square meters of the ceiling in his breathtaking fresco. Twenty-two years later, he returned to create The Last Judgement on the entire wall above the altar.

Colosseum, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill with Multimedia Experience

Start your adventure with a multimedia presentation that will immerse you directly into the atmosphere of ancient Rome, then continue exploring with entry to the trifecta of ancient sites: the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum.

You'll be able to breeze past some of the queues too; your ticket gives you fast-track access!

Tour Itinerary:

You'll start your experience at the Touristation office close to Vittorio Emanuele II Monument where you'll pick up your tickets and enjoy a 25-minute multimedia video about ancient Rome.

After that, it's time to discover the Archaeological park where you'll see the Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and, finally the Colosseum.

Visit the Roman Forum where everyday Roman citizens used to live to see the tomb of emperor Julius Caesar, and explore the ancient ruins at your own pace.

Your ticket also includes entrance to Palatine Hill, the site of the foundation of Rome, and the settlement of the most important houses of emperors and kings. Located just feet away from the Roman Forum and Circus Maximum, it is the center most of the 7 hills of Rome.

After the Archaeological area visit, enter the Colosseum – one of the most famous monuments in the world. As you explore the immense amphitheater — the largest ever built by the Roman Empire — imagine the gladiator fights and public spectacles that took place in the arena. The entrance to the Colosseum will take place approximately two hours after the timeslot you select during the booking process.

Must sees in Rome

The Renaissance-era St Peter's Basilica is one of the largest churches in the world (and the home-church of the Pope). Highlights include the dome (the biggest in the world), Bernini's Baldacchino (the centerpiece of the church), and Michelangelo's Pietà (the only artwork he ever signed). For both the pious and the casual visitor, a trip to St. Peter's is an awe-inspiring trip into the heart of Vatican City.
