    Ciao, I have a technical question. I've heard that it's not possible to talk inside the Sistina Chapel. Can you please tell me how will the guide explain the meaning of the frescoes? Also, I would like to tour the Vatican and Coliseum in the same day. Would you recommend the Early Bird / Prime Tour + Coliseum or the Vatican Hidden Gems Tour + Coliseum?

    Hi Linda, it's a pleasure to get to know you and answer your questions!

    The explanation of the frescoes of the Sistine Chapel varies from guide to guide ... it is certainly provided before to access, so that once inside you will admire the frescoes knowing their history and meaning. When the access to the Vatican Museums is early in the morning, guides usually explain the history of the Sistine Chapel before entering. For other tours and also depending on the season, the explanation can take place in the Courtyard of the Museums (outdoors), or inside, when a quiet place is spotted.
    In answer to your second question: you can visit the Colosseum and Roman Forum after the Vatican Museums according to your preferences.

    If you prefer a long-term tour we suggest you to book the Private Early Bird PRIME Tour+ Colosseum extension. If you rather prefer to disconnect the two tours, then also a Private Hidden Gems Tour and an Ancient Rome Tour are for you! Remember to add the tours to the cart separately. You will have time for a lunch break between the two tours!

    If you think that a long break in-between is needed, you can select the Private Early Bird PRIME Tour and, separately, the Ancient Rome tour. In this case you would have a few hours available to "recharge your batteries" before the second tour starts!

    Please contact us at info@eyesofrome.com in case of further questions!

    A presto!

    Hello Eyes of Rome Team, I should arrive in Rome Fiumicino on 3/17 at 8pm approx. and I would like to book the tour of the Vatican Museums with breakfast. The only day available for a quick visit of the city will be March 18th. I have already booked your Private tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. I'm thinking about the best option for the morning. I'm really afraid that after an intercontinental flight meeting the guide at 6:30am could be a problem. Is it worth to wake up that early? Also, I would like to book a hotel right near the Vatican Museums... do you have any recommendations?

    Best,

    Martha

    Ciao Martha! Your question is really interesting! Maybe it will be a little heavy to wake up early in the morning after a long flight, but trust us, it's worth it. You'll have the chance to admire the wonders of the Vatican Museums one hour before the general opening (9 am)! The breakfast buffet is a delight :) There are many products coming directly from the farms of the Pope.. a genuine Espresso will help you to energetically face the day!

    Regarding our suggested Hotels, we recommend you to take a look at our dedicated help center section Suggestions -> Places to Stay


    Please contact us as soon as you have chosen the ideal hotel for your stay in Rome so we'll be able to agree with you the starting time of the tour (if your hotel will be nearby the Museums' entrance we could lightly postpone the meeting time) and please note that a hotel booked near the Museums will allow you to relax a bit before starting your Colosseum tour!

    A presto!
