Vatican Museums + Colosseum Tour - Starting from the Colosseum with skip the line entrance so you will not have to wait around in the long lines the Vatican museums and Colosseum tour is the perfect full day option to see Rome in a day. The Colosseum is considered one of the most important attractions of world tourism, on July 7 2007 in Lisbon it was proclaimed a "New Wonder" of the world. The Colosseum, named by the Romans as "Anphitheatrum Flavium", was built by Emperor Vespasian in 72 AD, and inaugurated by his son Titus in 80 AD.

Next to the Colloseum is the Arch of Constantine, which was built on the ancient Via Triumphalis, a road used by the triumphant marches direct to the Capitol to celebrate the battle at the Milvian Bridge in 312 AD, when Emperor Constantine defeated his rival Maxentius, We can then continue our tour through the streets and trails of the Roman Forum located between the seven hills of Rome, over the centuries there were built monuments, buildings for political activities, religious and commercial activities.

From Roman Forum we will continue and conclude our tour at the great Piazza del Campidoglio on the Capitoline Hill (Capitolium), since ancient times this has been the focal point of political and religious activities in Rome. The most famous episode which covers the Capitol is linked to the invasion of 18 July 390 BC when the Gauls reached and sacked Rome, with the exception of the Capitol, legend has it that the night attack of the Gauls was foiled thanks to the squawking of the Capitoline geese kept in the sacred precincts of the temple of Juno.

After lunch we will restart with the Vatican Museums Tour at 13:30 from the Museums, the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica you will visit the most wonderful collection of art in the Vatican Museums that house the.most extensive collection in the world.
