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.

In all my travels around the globe and thinking back on the countless group or private guides I've encountered, no one has impressed me as well as Vincenzo with his enthusiasm and upbeat energy leading When In Rome's "City and Colosseum tour" last Wednesday. I've been to Italy a few times before so I had zero desire to join another... More

We booked the 3 hour tour of the Vatican, St. Peters and the Catacombs. We had the pleasure of having Luigi as our guide and he exceeded all of our expectations! He really knows his stuff, and you can just see how passionate he is about it all, that you can't help to take some of it with you. Truly... More

We booked this tour just a day before going and it was totally worth the money! Our guide Chiara was amazing, funny and informative and recommended to us a lovely little restaurant at the end of the tour. Highly recommended tour company. Also, if Chiara sees this review we hope you had a lovely time in London!

We enjoyed the Entire Vatican with Vatacombs tour with Luigi. Fascinating detail which was all tied together as we explored the treasures and history of the vatican. Luigi kept us entertained throughout the tour and his knowledge and passion for his work was clear. He also remembered all our names.

We booked this tour via Viator from Australia a month before we travelled. We did three tours whilst in Rome and this was easily the most average. Our guide Christina was highly informative & knowledgeable however through no fault of her own the Vatican was closing early because of a mass this also impacted our tour as we had no... More

Our experience with this tour company did not start well. The voucher clearly stated that they have three tours to the Vatican daily: 9am, 11am and 1pm. We arrived at the tour office at 8:45 am for the 9am tour and found the office closed. When we were able to get someone on the phone, we were advised that due... More

Christina was excellent this morning as she led us through the Vatican. Museum, Sistine chapel, St. Peter's Basilica and tombs. Very worthwhile to obtain a historical perspective about Vatican city. Regardless of how religious you are, it's worth a visit to appreciate the skill of the builders and artists who built these amazing buildings, created wonderful statues, wove the tapestries... More
