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.

Giuliano was an excellent guide. Took time to explain historic facts about the Colosseum & other places that we visited as part of the tour.

Giuliano was an excellent guide on this very interesting tour of the colosseum. He provided many interesting details and was able to answer all questions. Highly recommended tour!

My husband and I booked the Skip the Line: Vatican Highlights Small Group tour. Although we were pleased with the group size, our tour guide was a disappointment. Not only was her English very difficult to understand but the information provided to us during the tour was so dry and detailed that we only got through half the museum rooms... More

Took a three hour tour of the Vatican museums, the chapel and St Peters church and had Chiara as guide. She was super! told a lot of the history of the Vaticans with passion and humour. Gives so much more of the visit with a guide like Chiara :-)

Brilliant experience. Thank you for a very informative tour. The Coloseum is an outstanding piece of architecture. The Vatican City is in a league of its own.

What a great tour this was! Chiara was so passionate about the roman history, we learnt so much. We went completely over the time limit and Chiara did not mind. My husband completed the same tour with another company only days before and the experience with Chiara was definitely his favourite. I only wish we had booked with her for... More

Booked a Vatican and Colosseum tour online via Viator a week ahead of our trip to Rome. Instructions on where to meet were clear and we found the office very close to entrance to the museum. Christina was your guide for the three hour tour of the Vatican museum and St Peters. Hugely entertaining as well as informative. Colosseum ticket... More

We booked the 2-in-1 day tours of Vatican in the morning and the Colosseum in the afternoon. We had very limited time in Rome so this worked out wonderfully! Unfortunately because of unexpected incidents, we were late to our morning tour for the Vatican, but the people in the When in Rome office worked with us to try to get... More

We went on two guided trips with When In Rome. Both guides knew a lot about the subjects and where very good at capturing attention of the group and keeping the Tour intertesting.
