Meet your guide at the designated spot near the Colosseo Metro station. Walk briefly to the Colosseum and then travel up Via Sacra to the Roman Forum while your guide tells you about the rise and fall of the Roman Empire.

Head to the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon, with its oculus and dome—one of the world’s largest unreinforced concrete domes. Your guide tells you about the temple’s architecture and inscriptions.

Rest at Piazza Navona, populated by street artists, actors, and market vendors, before heading to the Vatican for the afternoon.

At the Vatican, tour some of the most famous spaces considered sacred by Christians, including the Hall of the Muses, Gallery of Tapestries, Raphael's Rooms, and the Sistine Chapel. Your guide provides skip-the-line access to St. Peter’s Basilica, if you would like to visit the church on your own. If not, your tour ends at St. Peter’s Square.
