Overview
Experience two of Rome’s most popular attractions on this skip-the-line tour, which potentially saves you hours of waiting in line. Visit the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica on a guided tour, hearing insightful commentary along the way. Then, explore the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill at your own pace on a self-guided tour.
What to Expect
Make your own way to the tour office in central Rome to meet your guide and group. Set out on the short walk to the Vatican, stopping to admire the magnificent views from St. Peter’s Square,
On arrival, use your prepaid skip-the-line tickets to gain priority entrance and head straight inside. Accompanied by your guide, discover the treasures on display in the vast Vatican Museums, including highlights like the Vatacombs and works by artists such as Raphael, Caravaggio, and da Vinci. You’ll also get chance to admire Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and visit St. Peter's Basilica.
Next, enjoy skip-the-line tickets to the Colosseum. Your tickets can be used at a time of your choosing on the same day, and a self-guided visit means you can take your time and stop to take photos. Tickets also include entrance to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.

The office is near the Vatican. They will give you an address and directions after you book. It’s real easy to find.

Yes you can do it on different days. We only had 1 day, which was doable. But please check with the agency to be 100% sure.
