Experience a quartet of historic landmarks, rich in cultural significance on this guided walking tour of the Eternal City. Your scenic motorcoach ride from port makes its first stop near the entrance to the Vatican Museums, which houses the masterpieces of painting, sculpture and other works of art collected by the popes through the centuries. Its crowning glory, the Sistine Chapel will have you gazing towards the heavens as you take in the biblical paintings by Renaissance masters, including Michelangelo's spectacular fresco on the vaulted ceiling. An outside visit of the majesty of St. Peter's Basilica, the largest church in the world and the grand St. Peter's Square, outlined by a monumental colonnade by Bernini, complete the morning's activities. An authentic, 1st class lunch is a welcome respite in your active day before you continue to Rome's grandest monument of all, The Colosseum, for a photo stop.
