Vatican City Day Trip from Florence by High-Speed Train: (6 Hours)
Rise early and ride by train from Santa Maria Novella station in central Florence to Rome. Relax on the 1.5-hour journey, and then take the subway to nearby Vatican City to meet your guide. Armed with your skip-the-line ticket, head straight inside the world-famous Vatican Museums complex.

Start with a visit to the Sistine Chapel, home to Michelangelo?s Creation of Adam and The Last Judgement frescoes, and learn about the acclaimed Renaissance artist from your guide. Continue through Museo Pio-Clementino to hear fun facts about the classical Laocoon and Apollo Belvedere sculptures, and then pass through the Gallery of Tapestries where a collection of fine Flemish tapestries await. Further highlights include the Galley of the Candelabra and Gallery of Maps.

After touring the museum complex, head inside St Peter?s Basilica. Not only one of the holiest places in Christendom, the church is home to famous art and architecture, too. Check out Michelangelo?s La Pietà and Gian Lorenzo Bernini?s baldachin altar, and learn about the standout features of the basilica from your guide. When you tour ends, enjoy 1.5 hours of free time before your next tour starts.

Imperial Rome Day Trip from Florence: (6 Hours)
Meet your guide at the Arch of Constantine in the heart of Ancient Rome to start your afternoon tour. First up is the Colosseum, aka the Flavian Amphitheater, the world?s best-known Roman gladiatorial stadium. Bypass the queues with your skip-the-line ticket, and then stroll around the first and second tiers of the amphitheater with your guide. Tales of gory gladiator battles and baying Roman crowds form the commentary as you explore.

From the Colosseum, wander through Ancient Rome to the Roman Forum, home to ruins and archaeological finds aplenty. Wander around Palatine Hill, hear of religious rituals that once took place in the House of Vestals and learn about the politics at play in Senate House.

Finish your Super Saver in the early evening, and bid your guide goodbye. From the forum, make your way back to Rome Tiburtina station, from where your train departs to Florence approx. at 8pm.
