Marvel at the sight of the Sistine Chapel, one of the most famous and visited sites in the world and the most emblematic example of papal patronage during the Renaissance period.

The expert guide will show you more artistic jewels such as the Pio-Clementino halls with the Laocoon and Apollo Belvedere, the Candelabra, Tapestries and Maps Galleries.

Half Day Colosseum and Roman Forum Tour

We begin atop Colle Oppio ("Opium Hill") with a panoramic view of the Colosseum, modern Rome's most recognizable landmark and one of Ancient Rome's most vital social centers. From there we will descend to our special Skip the Line access to the Colosseum. Once inside, an expert guide will talk you through the bloody past of the amphitheatre as you listen to tales of gladiators, mock sea-battles and executions.

After a brief rest at the Arch of Constantine, you will arrive at the Palatine Hill- the most famous of the 7 hills of Rome. From here you will admire the views of the Roman Forum and Nero's Circus Maximus where chariot races were once held. Romulus and Remus were said to have been found on the Palatine by the she-wolf who nursed and raised them. Legend holds that Romulus went on to found Rome.

The last stop is a walk along the "Via Sacra" or "Sacred Way" which is the main path through the Roman Forum that once sparkled with festivals and triumphal processions. It ends at the Temple which houses the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated. Visitors from around the world still leave flowers and candles at this site today.

The charm of the noble Roman houses is kept alive in the rooms of Hotel Turner: in a palace of the late 19th century, antiques, fine fabrics and precious marbles lend elegance and taste to rooms that also come with modern amenities and superior services.

Here guests can have a continental breakfast served as a buffet, for the enjoyment of the international clientele that comes to stay at the Turner Hotel.

In summer, the charming roof garden opens and you can spend a peaceful time sipping a drink or having a coffee.

For those wishing to organize a reunion or a business meeting, the Sala dei Marmi (the marble floor is inspired by the Clementine Hall in the Vatican) offers a beautiful setting, with the latest in equipment and seating capacity of up to 50 people.
