Your combo pass includes a One Run ticket (i.e. a single ride): you will be free to ride the bus for all its 8 stops, getting on wherever you are most comfortable and getting off at the end of the tour. Your bird’s-eye ride on the bus will last about 1.5 hours so, find your spot, get comfortable and marvel at the monuments and most important squares in the city: Piazza delle Repubblica, le Terme di Diocleziano, Santa Maria Maggiore, the Colosseum, the Circus Maximus, Altare della Patria, Teatro Marcello, Castel Sant'Angelo and so much more…
This travel combo pass also includes 2 other guided tours of the most iconic attractions in Rome: get ready to be enraptured by the wonders of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel and travel back in time as you step into the Colosseum, or feel like an Ancient Roman as you walk the street of the timeless old city of Rome!
About 20,000 works of art await you within the walls of the Vatican Museums: quite a lot, right? No worries though, because every little detail has been planned meticulously to lead you to discover the museum’s most beautiful sections in total relaxation.
Your expert guide will be welcoming you at the meeting point to start the visit with the group and enjoy this must-do tour of Rome thanks to the exclusive preferred entrance.
The visit will include the Gallery of Tapestries, the superb Gallery of Maps, the Borgia Apartments up to the wonderful Raphael’s Rooms, frescoed by the great painter himself and his students: here you will have the chance to admire Raphael’s “School of Athens” painting, one of his most famous works of art in the whole world! Finally, step into the Sistine Chapel to worship Michelangelo’s masterpiece and one of the museum's most famous cultural and artistic treasures. Come on, time to look up and lose yourself in the colours and magic of the chapel.
And there’s more! The great Roman Empire is one of the most exciting topics in history and is still part of school books today! The Romans invaded lands and places near and far, importing and often imposing their culture and traditions. The evidence of this greatness can still be seen all over the world, especially in the countries surrounding Italy.
But Rome alone encompasses many of the artistic beauties bequeathed to us by its ancient people. As you begin the tour, you will find yourself walking on the same stones that were trodden by the ancient Romans, to reach the heart of the magnificent Flavian Amphitheatre Theatre, known to most as the 'Colosseum'! Your guide will accompany you on a journey in which you will discover anecdotes and stories about how the Roman people enjoyed their leisure time and how they admired the Gladiators, appreciating their long fights against wild animals or big, fearful opponents!
We will then continue towards the Palatine Hill and you will find a very special place where you can still relive the legend that gave life to our Capital, the original place where the story of Romulus and Remus came to life almost 3000 years ago! From here you can enjoy a spectacular view that will leave you in ecstasy.
Next, you will cross the Roman Forum, also known as the 'Forum Magnum', the beating heart of ancient Rome, made up of buildings related to politics and religion that manifested the grandeur of Rome. It was a place where daily life was noisy, the streets always filled with people from different classes and backgrounds, such as the military, politicians who spread their ideas with speeches to the people before elections, or the vestals (priestesses consecrated to the Goddess Vesta) whose job was to prepare ingredients for the sacrifices of men in trial.
Step back in time with us and book your place to experience ancient Rome like never before!
Enjoy your stay in Rome by combining the guided tours of the Vatican Museums and Colosseum with the experience on our open bus. You get to decide when to have your guided tours: all in one day or perhaps split over a 2-day period. Make sure to tell us when booking the package!
