The tour starts at “Colle Oppio”, one of the famous Seven Hills of Rome that has a beautiful view over the Colosseum. Today you’ll follow in Roman emperors’ and their subjects’ footsteps. Here Nero married the beautiful Sporus and then Pythagorus in Roman gay marriages. In fact in ancient Rome, gay marriage wasn’t as frowned upon as in some countries today. It’s also thought that Julius Caesar, great general and statesman, caused scandal when he had a relationship with Nicomedes, the king of Bithynia.

It’s then on to the Colosseum where your priority ticket will mean you can skip the line and gain access straight away. Your guide will tell you about life inside one of the most famous monuments in the world: fights between gladiators and even water battles with ships.

After a little break in the nearby of The Arch of Constantine, erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine’s victory over Maxentius you’ll head to Palatine Hill. It’s the most famous of the seven hills of Rome and where Romulus and Remus were found by the she-wolf. You’ll see the Imperial Fora and the Circus Maximus which was an ancient Roman chariot racing stadium. From there you will walk along The Via Sacra, the main street of ancient Rome, where you’ll find the Temple of Caesar where he was cremated. You’ll also see Piazza Venezia and the Pantheon During the tour.

Day 3

Private tour: The other side of the Sistine Chapel (duration: 3 hours)

The tour starts in the morning with the Vatican Museums’ tour. At first sight your eyes will be caught by the modern entrance built for the Jubilee in 2000 but then, inside the museums, the Sistine Chapel will amaze you. You’ll see ancient Greek and Roman statues, above all the ones of the emperor Hadrian and his beloved Antinous. The ceiling of the Sistine Chapel was painted by Michelangelo between 1508 to 1512. The commission was originally to paint the twelve apostles, however Michelangelo demanded a free hand in the pictorial content of the scheme. He painted a series of nine pictures now worldwide famous.

People talk a lot about Michelangelo’s figures because he was inspired by common people and gave a particular attention in painting sensual nudes. Our gay friendly guide will tell you all about the secrets of his private life and how scientists from all over the world now agree that he was homosexual and had a love story with a young poet.

Free time in the afternoon allows you to explore further yourself.
