Overview

If you are looking to independently discover two of the most popular attractions in Rome – Colosseum and the Vatican Museum, then this combo is the best choice. You will not only get your own sweet time to explore the attractions but also fast-track entrances that will help you dodge those long queues.

SKIP-THE-LINE COLOSSEUM TICKET

Walk past the long queues and enjoy fast-track access to one of the most popular Rome attractions, the mighty Colosseum with this skip-the-line admission ticket. Explore the most majestic structure of the Roman Empire that embodies myriad tales of bravery, public life and royalty in ancient Rome. It is known for its complex, stunning and advanced architecture, most of which is still intact considering the site being used as a pit for building materials at various points in history.

SKIP-THE-LINE VATICAN MUSEUM TICKET

Save time with skip-the-line access to the Vatican Museums, which begins at 3pm. Admire the artistic and historical treasures by some of the world's greatest artists like Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Titian and Caravaggio.

Navigate the vast complex of rooms, artwork and history and explore halls such as the Gallery of the Maps and Raphael’s Rooms. Vatican Museums has 54 galleries, housing one of the largest art collections in the world. Visit the Raphael Rooms, ancient sculpture galleries and the stunning Hellenistic ‘Laocoon’.

Step inside the Sistine Chapel to admire ‘The Creation of Adam’ by Michelangelo’. Every corner of the Sistine Chapel is decorated with mosaics on the floor and intricate frescoes on the wall painted by the early Renaissance artists. Feast your eyes by looking at the luminous paintings on the ceiling and behind the altar painted by Michelangelo.

Make your way to St Peter’s Basilica and explore the Papal Crypts or climb the dome to the highest manmade point in Rome. Admire Michelangelo’s La Pietà, sculpted by the genius at the age of 24.
