What to expect

Join the tour and combine a panoramic tour with morning skip the line access to the Vatican Museums.

Our pink buses are on the move all day long and will take you to the city’s most important monuments and cultural venues while you are comfortably seated. Hop on and off at your convenience and reward yourself with a marvellous view of Rome you will never forget.
The tour is also tape-recorded and individual earphones are at disposal. On the pink buses, you'll find a very informative audio-guide which will illustrate the unique history of Rome's splendour and provide plenty of interesting details to enrich your experience. The pink buses – all equipped with free Wi-Fi – run daily at a frequency of 10/15 minutes.

In the morning you'll also have the chance to discover the Vatican Museums. You won't have to stress to reach the entrance: our representatives will lead you to the Museums, where you'll visit at your own pace one of the most important art collections in the world. Discover the masterpieces of Rome on this self-guided tour of the fifty-four galleries, including four statue museums and the Sistine Chapel, arguably the most famous chapel in the world due to the artwork located within.
