Leave Milan by high-speed train and spend the day sightseeing in Rome on your own. After a 3.5-hour morning train journey to Rome, you'll have the rest of the day to explore the historic city independently. Take a hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour and listen to audio commentary as you cruise around on an open-top double-decker bus to landmarks such as the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps. If selected, enjoy hassle-free entry to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel with a skip-the-line ticket.
In the morning, individually depart from central Milan for Rome by high-speed train. The journey will take 3.5-hour to Rome Termini Station where your City Sightseeing bus will be waiting for you. With your complimentary city map and 24-hour hop-on hop-off bus ticket you can hop on and off as much as you please, allowing you to customize your Roman experience. The "Eternal City" hosts an incredible number of magnificent monuments, museums and churches.
Enjoy the views and listen to the audio commentary or hop off and take a break, walk among the coffee shops of the Dolce Vita or stroll along the river Tiber and discover typical restaurants and bars, where you can taste typical Roman dishes. Whatever you choose do to, the schedule is up to you! You'll have up to eight hours to explore at your leisure, before departing for Milan from Rome's Termini station.
Optional skip-the-line ticket to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel (please note that the Vatican Museums are always closed on Sunday and are free on the last Sunday of every month)
