Your guide leads the way through the Roman Forum, where you hear famous names such as Julius Ceasar and Augustus, and you learn what impact they had on Rome.
Then the nearby Colosseum awaits. Once you skip the lines through the Gladiator's Gate you´ll find yourself in the middle of the arena. The sun outlines your shadow on the arena floor. If you feel warmth, then imagine what it must have been like for the gladiators! Your guide will explain the history of the amphitheatre and of course all about the gladiators!
After you have explored the Colosseum - both with the guide and on your own - you take a lunch break before heading to the Vatican. Here you skip the line to enter the marvellous museum, where you see the works of Raphael and Michelangelo, among others. Don't forget to take it all in at the Sistine Chapel and the St. Peter's Basilica - it's quite an experience!
