When In Rome Tours is a collective of like-minded tourism industry...

When In Rome Tours is a collective of like-minded tourism industry professionals, comprising company directors, two business managers, several admins, and dedicated support staff. Our Rome tour guides are fully licensed and have been leading Rome walks for many years in both English and native Spanish. Instead of working for a corporate tours provider on a commission basis, we have worked our way up over the years to become Rome's leading independently established tour operator. There are no middlemen, book a Rome or Vatican walking tour with us and you will tour WITH US. In this way, you get value for money with no extra costs at any stage. Our guides are experts in their chosen field, be they art historians or archaeologists. Our primary aim is to deliver education about Rome and the Vatican in an enjoyable way, so we take great care to ensure that our guides are as personable as they are professional. Small group tours of Rome work well for everyone and they are our focus. If, however, you wish to book a fully private and exclusive tour, we have many private Rome tour options for you to consider. As a fully licensed tour agency in Rome, we have to bear considerable operating costs as anyone working in Italy will tell you, so we are very proud to announce that our prices continue to be as competitive today as they always have been. In order to be fully transparent, tour costs on our website include all tickets and all local taxes - there is never anything else to pay over and above the prices we publish online. One of our many guarantees is "skip the Vatican line". The same also applies to our ancient Rome tours - "skip the Coliseum line". You will always enter venues in Rome before everyone else on a Rome or Vatican tour with When In Rome Tours. Our reputation in Rome is second to none, and we are sent recommendations every day. When In Rome Tours strives to offer the best possible tours of Rome and the Vatican, and we will continue to pursue even higher service standards in future.

We (group of 9) did a two day private tour of Vatican and Rome with Luigi as our guide. Luigi was extremely knowledgeable and very detailed oriented. His passion and experience of the subject really made our 2 day trip in Rome amazing. Luigi was extremely patient and very helpful with the kids in our group. We all really enjoyed... More

We did the Vatican Museums and Vatacombs tour and it was informative. I suppose I went into the tour expecting the Vatacombs part to be something a little bit exclusive and something like the elusive Necropolis tour but it wasn't. The rest of the tour was great and the tour guide (Luigi) was a big talker (not my taste but... More

My husband and I had a short stay in Rome and wanted to get as much out of our short stay as possible! Of course The Vatican was a must see! We had Luigi as our tour guide, and not only was he extremely knowledgeable, but genuinely cared about our experience as his guests. Walking up to an established, clean... More

Had a excellent tour of Vatican City, visiting the Museum, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basillica. What made it brilliant was our our personal guide, Luigi. He was not only knowledgeable about the historically aspects of the exhibits, he was so patient and helpful with my elderly parents and young kids. Would highly recommend Luigi for the tours.

We had Christina for our tour of the Vatican and St Peters Basilica and she was phenomenal! Truly worth the price and the best thing we did in Rome. Christina gave such an insightful and personalised tour, would recommend every time.

This was our first visit to Rome. We had a full day to explore on our own so we booked this company through AAA to provide a couple walking tours. Chiara did a fabulous job of not only helping us navigate quickly through he city on foot but she offered expert explanations about what we were seeing. She did a... More

We had a busy day seeing all the key sites in Rome with our American tour guide. It was great beating the crowd with a tour as it was very crowded at the sites. This is a must for tourists to have advanced tickets with a tour to beat the lines. Easy to find the meeting place and plan in... More
