Inarguably the most majestic structure of the Roman Empire, the Colosseum (originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre) is inhabited by myriad tales of bravery, public life and royalty in ancient Rome. Despite the pillage of natural disasters, fires, pollution and wars, it is a living proof of the stunning architecture and strong masonry of ancient world, and has served as a model for stadiums around the world.
In the Colosseum, you can go up Michelangelo’s staircase to reach the Campidoglio – the beautiful piazza outside the Capitoline Museums. Or, you can visit the arena floor where you will be amazed to see the magnitude of the Flavian Amphitheatre.

Note: Your Colosseum ticket can only be used on the first day of your hop-on, hop-off tour.
You will be overwhelmed as you enter the Vatican Museum and visit the majestic Sistine Chapel in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope. Every corner of the 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, one of the greatest artists of all time. Contrary to the optimism and elegance of the ceiling, Michelangelo’s Last Judgement, which he painted on the back wall a decade later, is darker and pessimistic.
You are free to take in the beauty of the chapel as well as the other artworks on your own.

They advertise no lines and that is not an exaggeration. The hop off hop on bus was a good overview of Rome. We have done that in other cities, but I think I have heard better...Claudette Jaramillo, United States, 05/Jun/2018
The busses were nice and the stops were good. Would have liked to have a little more instruction on how to get to the main sites at each stop. The map was good but somewhat hard...Michaela Robbins, United States, 07/Feb/2018
Easy to use, Skip the line tickets ensured quick entry into Vatican and Colosseum, will use again....Michael wilson, United Kingdom, 07/Feb/2018
Booked on line just showed the pass and we were away
The skip the line tickets for the Colosseum and Vatican were great deals if you value your time. The hop on hop off for the 48 hours was a bonus
