Rome is the „eternal city.“ Founded in 753 BC. According to legend, it was Romulus and Remus who baptizes the city. It was the center of the ancient world. From here, the Roman Empire was administered. Our life today in the west of Europe is based on the cultural achievements of the empire of the time.
Be sure to come to the capital of Italy. And bring plenty of time. The city is not even so to explore over the weekend. With GetYourGuide Rome you can book the most beautiful sights in advance. You often benefit from VIP access, through which you bypass long queues.
Vatican and Sistine Chapel
Immeasurable cultural treasures can be found in the Vatican. The museums amaze all visitors. Carved sarcophagi, the cabinet of masks or the gallery of maps. And then in the Sistine Chapel the world-famous frescoes of the exceptional artist Michelangelo.

St. Peter's Basilica without queuing
Yes, of course, the Vatican also includes St. Peter’s Basilica, including the gigantic St. Peter’s Square. The real name: Saint Peter in the Vatican. The cathedral is the religious center of the state of Vatican City. It is the largest of the papal basilicas in the world. It is believed that the church was built over the tomb of St. Peter. The construction period lasted from 1506 to 1626.
Architecturally, all the registers of the time were pulled here. Of particular note is the mighty dome. Michelangelo probably drew the origin plans. The dome is now considered to be the largest freestanding structure in the world, built from brick.
We have tickets St. Peter’s Basilica with priority admission and audio guide.
Don´t miss our special offer: Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter´s Basilica with tour and skip the line.
Colosseum, Palatine & Roman Forum in combination pack
What used to be battles, fights and gruesome events here. Rome’s Colosseum is the world’s largest amphitheatre ever built. It was built between 72 and 80 after the birth of Christ. It is still the landmark of the city of Rome and one of the most popular attractions of the Italian capital.
Through 80 entrances, the crowds of visitors were able to reach their seats relatively orderly and quickly. Of course, the VIPs were something very special at the time and found access through 4 special entrances. Thanks to this truly sophisticated system, the „Arena“ could be cleared within only 5 minutes (with about 50,000 visitors). A true feat and role model for modern stadiums of today.
And there’s another highlight in the Coliseum. If the wooden floor in the arena itself was removed, the „playing field“ could be completely flooded. Emperor Titus had (historically proven) naval battles performed.
Galleria Villa Borghese Admission
A unique location in the city of Rome. And a unique park with a world-famous art collection in the Villa Borghese. The noble Borghese family is the origin of this treasure in the city.
