If you could only afford one tour in Rome...

Jump to last reply

We (my husband and I in our 30s) are stretching our budget in so many places already, that I think that I am only willing to pay for a more expensive tour for EITHER the Vatican or the Colosseum/Forum. I'm thinking along the lines of Walks of Italy tours - VIP Access Colosseum Underground tour (74 E each) or Pristine Sistine tour (89 E each). If you could only do one, which and why?

To be honest, I don't have as much background knowledge as I should about either place/time and hope to do more reading before traveling. So in that sense, I think the tours would be equally rewarding to bring meaning to what we are seeing. My instinct is to do the Colosseum tour because a guide could really bring it to life, and you get access that is not otherwise available to the public. If we did that, we would probably do a cheaper tour through the Vatican that does not include special access to the Sistine Chapel.

FYI, we will probably save the Scavi tour for another trip, as neither of us have visited the Vatican before and would like the general overview tour first.

Any advice would be great! And if you have another tour company that you would recommend, please pass that along as well.
