The Streets of Downtown Ancient Rome
Have you ever wondered about the Roman Forum’s significance to Ancient Rome? Now full of sprawling ruins next door to the Colosseum, the Forum once served as the powerful Roman Empire’s commercial and political center. After skipping the line, take a quick walk through the ruins of this once thriving Roman icon.
While you will not wait in the normal line, a wait in a shorter security line is still required for entrance. Brief delays at the security check may occur during our busiest months, June and July. We have a team of experts waiting at the Vatican each morning to help our groups avoid delays.
Experience the Sistine Chapel, the Rome in a Day tour’s centerpiece, in person. Your Sistine Chapel visit is included with your skip the line Vatican tickets. You’ll stand in awe at Michelangelo’s stunning frescoes depicting more than 600 figures and stories from the Old Testament.
As the Sistine Chapel is a place of worship, speaking inside is forbidden. We will provide you with a reference map prior to entering the chapel. Your guide will explain the significance of Michelangelo’s artwork before you enter. Use the map for orientation when you are inside.
To enter the Vatican's Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica all visitors must cover their knees and shoulders. You may be denied entry to this portion of the Vatican tour without proper attire. Consider bringing a shawl/scarf/sweater for covering knees and shoulders during the hot summer months.
Designed by Renaissance architects such as Bernini, Bramante and Michelangelo, St. Peter’s Basilica spans the size of roughly two American football fields. This marvelous Roman landmark took 120 years to build. Use a special door, you will skip the regular entrance to see the statue of St. Peter, La Pieta and the famed Baldacchino. Standing 95 feet tall Bernini's Baldacchino sits right beneath St. Peter's dome above the papal altar.
It is not possible to return to the Vatican Museums by way of St. Peter’s Basilica. If you want to spend more time inside the museums, you must forego the guided tour of the basilica. If you wish to stay in St. Peter's Basilica longer, don't leave with the guide to take photos in the piazza. Because the security line is long and individual re-entry is not recommended, we suggest that you stay inside St. Peter’s and explore on your own after the tour concludes.
