    Take a half day guided tour in the outstanding Museo Nazionale Romano Palazzo Massimo and Terme di Diocleziano. In one morning you'll see so many famous art treasures away from the tourist crowds and city traffic.

    This tour was perfect for me and my partner to do the morning before we left Rome for southern Italy. The museum wasn't crowded at all and allowed us to marvel and ask questions about all of the Roman National artifacts and collections. After the museum we went to the ancient baths that also had a display of multiple family sarcophagi that were very well preserved. We finished up with a scientific twist as we visited a church that was established that was on the foundation of the entrance to the ancient baths. On the floor of the church was a sundial that had been installed to more accurately track the passage of time. Our hotel was close enough to not require the transportation that was provided but could be a good perk for someone staying closer to the Vatican or other parts of the city. Without the cost of the taxi, it would probably be better priced. A major benefit is it is fairly close to the Colosseum and the train station.

Very convenient for getting around and visiting Rome. Nevertheless, with the sanitary restrictions, the Vatican skip-the-line ticket did not serve us. Looking forward, Joffrey

fantastic Tour with a fantastic Guide Lucilla. Her knowledge is enourmes and she is very happy to share it to the clients. I enjoyed this tour immensely.

Very good if you have more than three days there otherwise besides the Vatican tickets the taxi is an easy and inexpensive way

A pass with which you can go in all directions. We found it ideal!
