From the Trevi fountain to the Colosseum, Rome's abundant sights rival those of any other city on the planet, in terms of their beauty, historical importance and ability to simply take your breath away. Whether your interests lie in antiquity, architecture, cuisine, culture, religion, shopping or sport, Rome has something to suit all tastes.

Stroll through the Pantheon, marvel at Michelangelo's Piazza del Campidoglio and admire the Swiss Guardsmen of Vatican City. Try a "proper" spaghetti alla Carbonara near the Spanish Steps or sit back with a coffee and people-watch in Piazza Navona. Alternatively, if you fancy a break from Rome sightseeing, act like a local and take in a Lazio or Roma match at the Olympic Stadium.

For the Skip the Line portion of our combination tour, we'll get you straight in so you can visit all the highlights of the Vatican Museums. From the Sistine Chapel to the lesser-known gems of the collection such as the Hall of Maps and the Gallery of Candelabra, you will see it all! A real highlight of your visit will be when you visit the Sistine Chapel, take some time inside this world famous room and appreciate the back breaking work of Michelangelo.

Also visit Rome's most iconic site, the Colosseum, and see with your own eyes where the gladiators fought to the death. Feel the history inside you as you imagine the roaring crowds watch the bloody battles and executions. Access the Roman Forum, where you'll walk along the 'Sacred Way', which once sparkled with festivals and triumphal processions, then admire the views of Palatine Hill, the most famous of the seven hills in Rome.
