An experience that is sure to inspire the art lover in anyone.

Next, you will be able to explore the famed Sistine Chapel. Completed around 1483, the Sistine Chapel is arguably the most famous chapel in the world due to the artwork located within. View many of the most famous frescoes in the world, including the famous ceiling and The Last Judgement painted by Michelangelo. Not only does the Sistine Chapel hold some of the world's most precious works of art, but it is also still used for religious purposes such as the Papal conclave, the process through which a new Pope is chosen.

Later you will visit a popular pilgrimage site, St. Peter's Basilica, also one of the largest in the world and a shining example of Renaissance architecture.

Take a tasty stop after the visit of the Vatican Museums in a typical restaurant for a 3 courses meal (optional). Then be ready to visit the Colosseum Area.

The Colosseum is one of the most popular and amazing building of the entire world. Access the Colosseum with no line and be ready to enter into the legend. Learn about architecture and history of this massive amphitheater which hosted ancient Romans, Senators, Emperors and Gladiators as well as animals from all over the world.
