    Colosseum Guided Tour

    Unfortunately, this tour is not suitable for those with mobility problems.

    This tour ends in the Colosseum vicinity.

    Vatican Museum Tour

    This is a self-guided combo tour: audio guides can be rented inside the Vatican Museums and our service ends with delivering the ticket to you at the Museum’s lobby.

    Since you would be visiting a place of worship, wearing shirts with sleeves and avoiding shorts, vest tops and open toe sandals would be best.
