Take a walk through a room like a map gallery with golden vaulted ceilings. Raphael Rooms was painted by Renaissance artist Raphael and the impressive Sistine Chapel, along with Michelangelo's Creation of Adam and the Last Judgement, was the Pope's private chapel. Early Access tours show that the gallery is much quieter than later in the day.
Meet and greet a guide across from the entrance to the Vatican Museums, a collection of galleries displaying classic and Renaissance masterpieces, including frescoes from the Sistine Chapel.

The guide emphasizes the story behind each piece. On the Tour Small Properties, you can always be near your guide, but you will be provided with a headset so that you can clear the comments at any time.
Get off the tourist trail at the Colosseum and use the special entrance to enter the normally inaccessible arena floor to see the gladiators. You can't get close to the action.

When you marvel at the magnificent amphitheater around you, your expert guide will immerse you in the malicious blood sport that was the most popular form of entertainment in Rome about 2000 years ago. During the tour, you will also explore the rest of the Colosseum, such as the ground floor and the Roman Forum.
