It’s a full and fabulous day as you see the
historic Colosseum, the iconic structure of
imperial Rome constructed between 72 and
80 AD. This engineering marvel could hold between 50,000 - 80,000 spectators of public spectacles, gladiator battles, and classical dramas. Imagine the ghosts of the Caesars in the ruins of the Forum, the ancient heart of the Roman Empire. Enjoy some free time for lunch before your visit to the Vatican with a privately guided tour of the Museums with entrance to the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica.* Then it’s off to your farewell dinner in a charming Roman neighborhood. (B, D)
* The Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica are subject to occasional closure by the Vatican. Itinerary timing could change on this day due to Vatican availability.
