ROME CITY TOUR
Today we will visit two of Rome’s most iconic attractions – the Colosseum and the Vatican! The Vatican museum is the most visited Museum in Italy displaying the largest art collection of the world including Michelangelo's fresco that adorne the Sistine Chapel. As you delve deeper into the Museums your guide will point out pagan sculptures, massive maps from the middle ages, and the Pope’s personal collection of paintings, tapestries, and unique treasures.
Of course, no trip to the Vatican is complete without the Sistine Chapel and you’ll get to look up at Michelangelo’s magnificent frescoes including the ‘Creation of Adam’ and the ‘Last Judgement’. His name will also be mentioned when you explore St. Peters Basilica and you stand in awe beneath his massive dome and try to make out his hand-carved name on ‘Pietá’.
After our time at the Vatican museum we will make our way to the Colosseum. Step back in time in this gruesome wonder that struck fear in the heart of both pagans and Christians. As Byron said on his first visit to the Colosseum, ‘Murder breathed her bloody steam’.
After a long day we will freshen up before heading to dinner as group.
