Useful Information About Rome Tourist Card
Enjoy some of the best of Rome with our Rome Tourist Card
Colosseum, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill
Enjoy the Colosseum, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill on a self-guided tour. Don't worry about the queues as your ticket included Priority Access, so simply follow the signs.
The Colosseum was actually known as the 'Flavian Amphitheatre'. At the time had you asked for directions to the Colosseum the locals wouldn't have known what you were talking about!
Picture the Colosseum full of chanting crowds and imagine the battles that took place there. Picture the gladiators waiting for battle in the underground areas.
Spectators at the Colosseum were assigned seats according to their wealth and status, with the various areas offering different views. Much like going to a concert now - the best views have the most expensive tickets!
The Roman Forum was used as a marketplace and the centre for political, commercial and social life in Rome. It would have been full of shops and stalls as well as holding events such as the funeral of Julius Caesar.
The Roman Forum was buried for centuries and it wasn't recovered until the 18th century when excavation works help to uncover it again.
Palatine Hill was home to the aristocrats and emperors of the time and with that was one of the most desirable neighbourhoods. It was one of the seven hills of ancient Rome and holds important historical and archaeological significance as it's believed to have been the birthplace of Rome itself, by Romulus, the mythical founder, in 753 BC.
You will see lots of ruins at Palatine Hill but they are fascinating as you can imagine what life used to be like when the emperors and aristocrats lived there with their grand imperial palaces with their lavish gardens that would have been home to big statues and shows of wealth and power.
The Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel
The Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel are one of the most popular landmarks and tourist attractions in Rome welcome around 5 million visitors each year, which is also why it's also much better to book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
The Vatican Museums are home to one of the largest art collections in the world including pieces from ancient Rome along with Egyptian artifacts and religious objects. The collection also contains a significant number of paintings from classic masterpieces to modern day pieces.
The Sistine Chapel forms part of the Vatican Museums and is home to the world-famous ceiling painted by Michelangelo in the 16thcentury, and shows his interpretation of the story of creation and the great flood, amongst other scenes.
Michelangelo also painted the scene of the ‘Last Judgement’ behind the alter. The Sistine Chapel, as well as Michelangelo’s incredible work, is also home to works by Ghirlandaio, Botticelli, Perugino as well as Pinturicchio and others.
The Sistine Chapel is also where the cardinals meet for conclave when they are electing a new pope, which is identified by white smoke from the chimney. The Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel are located in Vatican City which is the smallest country in the world!
