This is a combination tour, that allows you to visit both the Vatican and the Colosseum in one day, at a lower price.
The itinerary of the tour - especially during the Jubilee year - may change due to unforeseen Vatican events.
On Wednesday morning access to the Basilica is forbidden due to the Papal audience.
We suggest you to wear comfortable clothes and shoes. To acces the St. Peter's Basilica you must have your knees and shoulders covered.
The pick-up is provided only for the hotels located in the centre of Rome, so it is important to communicate the name and address of the hotel where you are staying, to organize the service in the best way. Also, please note that the pick-up service is NOT provided for private homes and B&B. The pick-up service starts one hour before the tour's departure: the exact time of your pick-up will be communicated after the booking.
