About the Show & Go™
  • Our exclusive pass lets you join two different, equally fascinating guided tours whenever you want, without the need to book in advance, and on different days if you like. This is unique to ItaliaRail® — you won’t find this kind of flexibility with other combo passes!

  • Skip-the-Line access means you’ll spend less time waiting and more time sightseeing! Experience the wonders of Vatican City, including the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica, as well as a thrilling exploration of the iconic Colosseum and other ancient Roman landmarks.

  • The Vatican Tour: Your expert guide will give you an overview of the history and art of the smallest state in the world as you stroll among the treasures of antiquity. Feast your eyes on the world’s most famous frescoes — including Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling — and immerse yourself in the beauty of St. Peter’s Basilica.

  • The Colosseum & Ancient Rome Tour: Discover the Colosseum — the extraordinary 50,000 seat amphitheater that was ancient Rome’s center of public entertainment featured bloody gladiatorial clashes, wild animal fights and mock naval battles. Explore The Roman Forum, once the cultural, economic and political center of ancient Rome. And take in the sweeping views from Palatine Hill, the site where twins Romulus and Remus were said to begin building the first city of Rome.
