What to Expect
Start out your full-day tour by skipping the line at the entrance to the Borghese Gallery, located in one of the most beautiful parks in Rome. The art gallery, renowned for centuries as having the best of all private art collections, houses masterpieces that the Borghese family amassed starting in 1600.

After visiting the Gallery, your tour continues with a pleasant stroll through Borghese Park. Stop at the Pincio Terrace and take in the breathtaking view of the city. Walk along the panoramic Pincio Promenade to Trinità dei Monti. Descend the legendary Spanish Steps to see the Fontana della Barcaccia, designed by Pietro Bernini.

Stop to relax and enjoy lunch at a typical Roman restaurant before proceeding to the Vatican Museums. Once there, you’ll again skip the line at the entrance and take in some of the 2,000 rooms that are home to the most extensive collection of art in the world. Listen as your guide, a specialist in art history and archaeology, provides you with a detailed and intriguing history of what you’re seeing.

In the Sistine Chapel you’ll marvel at the art of Michelangelo and then enter imposing St. Peter's Basilica, where the dome and floor plan were also designed by Michelangelo. See the famous sculpture, the Pietà, and admire the gold and bronze Altar Baldaquin by artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

Next it’s time to head out into St. Peter's Square, where you can spend free time soaking up the historical riches of the city.
