You'll want to fill it up, when you learn about our world famous Colosseum Underground Tour!
This is a walking tour and involves occasional walking up & down stairs.
Join us and only a few other companies who enter the Vatican at 7:30 am - 1.5 hours before the general public.
See the highlights of this amazing room, including ancient Roman and Greek statues.
Admire beautiful tapestries from the 16th and 17th centuries made by hand.
Pope Gregory XV had an entire gallery painted with the maps of Italy. They are more than 400 years old.
Going in at this time with us ensures you will see the galleries practically empty!
The doors open at 8am to the Chapel. You will be one of the first there! Enjoy the chapel practically empty.
The line to enter the Basilica is notoriously long. Not with TheRomanGuy. We bypass that completely allowing you to enter the Basilica stress free.
From a terrace located in front of St Peter's Basilica, your guide will explain the wonders you'll find inside the most beautiful church in the world.
Your guide will leave you at the door of the church. You can then enter and explore highlights like Papal Tombs as you complete the tour at your own pace.
Q: Does this tour always include St. Peter's Basilica?
A: St. Peter's Basilica is closed on Wednesday mornings due to the Papal Audience. We still run the tour because it might be your only day in Rome! Instead, we visit some of the most iconic statues in the world and Emperor Nero's enormous marble bathtub.
Q: Does the tour go inside at 7:30 am without waiting in any lines?
A: Yes! Enter the museums through the "center lane". Individuals enter through the left lane. Tour operators enter in the right lane. We enter through the center lane for this tour which lets us inside 90 minutes before individuals and 30 minutes before other tour operators.
Q: What are the chances my tour will be canceled or the Vatican will close something.
A: We run the tour rain or shine all year round. Although it is rare, sometimes part of the Vatican City closes for special religious events. If an area normally covered on a tour is closed, our guide will still provide explanations of the closed areas from outside. Plus, we will show you an extra site or gallery to compensate.
Q: I have some doubts about my mobility. Is this tour right for me?
A: If you have any doubts about your mobility, we strongly suggest you take a private Vatican tour.

The thought of an early start was well forgotten as we started the tour. Raffa was a great tour guide, and the whole tour is great. Accessing the Sistine chapel with very few people in is an opportunity not to be missed. we had approx 20 mins to look around it, and as the crowds were not there yet, plenty of space to sit wherever we wanted and move around freely. We were so glad we'd booked this when the entry queues to the Vatican were long when we had finished the tour.
The advice from the Roman Guy on chat was great, helping us plan the tours to see everything we wanted to see on our visit to Rome...more
My wife and I LOVED this tour and our guide was awesome. Loved entering so early!

Tour operators were early for check in and information on meeting place was prefect. They knew the system and our tour seemed almost like a private viewing. A little crowded in St Peters and Sistine Chapel but only because we had the rest of the place alone. Knowledgeable guide and great tour. Highly recommend!..more
