Get a guaranteed admission at the Papal Audience in either St. Peter's Square or Nervi Hall. Experience seeing Pope Francis and listening him welcome pilgrims, impart his blessing and lead the prayers. Thanks to our secured priority admission to the event, we will transport you to the Vatican. Live an intense spiritual moment side-by-side with people from around the world. Feel free to pray or simply observe one of the most incredible, long-standing traditions in the Catholic world.

The Audience may be celebrated in the majestic venue of St. Peter’s Square or in the dedicated Nervi Hall, according to Vatican schedule. If in St. Peter's Square, you will also walk with us close to the monumental Castel Sant'Angelo and along Via della Conciliazione, in order to reach St. Peter's in the background and pass the security check-points to the Vatican City.
Our guide will tell you the story and the secrets of the Vatican, suggest where to sit and make your arrival works smoothly despite crowds.

After the audience you will be accompanied to a typical Roman restaurant nearby to enjoy a meal before heading to the Colosseum Area for your afternoon tour. Benefit of a complimentary transportation to the Colosseum. With this tour you'll access the Colosseum with a priority skip-the-line ticket.

Walk in the footsteps of Giants on this guided tour through the heart of the Roman Empire. Travel back in time, embraced by 360 degrees of jaw dropping Roman architecture. Learn the history behind it all, from the minute to the magnificent. Pause to contemplate the genius that took the Colosseum from concept to reality in 70-80AD, centuries before the advent of modern engineering. Once the most famous meeting place in the world, the Colosseum is estimated to have once held 50,000-80,000 spectators. Your Gray Line pass allows you to skip hours of long lines to enter the Colosseum directly. Once inside, breathe in the bloody past of the amphitheater, brought to life by your passionate, expert guide. Standing for nearly two millennia, the structure has been a symbol of both glory and scorn, serving vastly different purposes over the course of history.

Just outside, you'll see the magnificent Arch of Constantine. Continuing our walking tour, discover the excavated ruins of the Roman Forum Archaeological Site, where many structures remain intact to this day. For a city founded in 753 BC, this is no small feat. Continue exploring the breathtaking Palatine Hill, ending your tour with a deeper connection to the history of Rome and a strong foundation of knowledge to continue exploring Rome.
Important: Due to limited sunlight in winter (November-March) the afternoon tour will visit Capitoline Hill instead of Palatine. From Capitoline Hill, you will admire the best view on the Roman Forum for your best picture, monuments and sculptures decorating the square designed by Michelangelo.

We will bid you farewell to continue exploring the area on your own or return to your hotel.
