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. « less

Our tour guide, Guilano, was fantastic.. font of knowledge, approachable, easy to understand and made the tour for us. It was supposed to last... More

I highly recommend to book a guided tour when visiting the Vatican, this way you will get the best out of your visit. Our guide was Aurora, a knowledgeable and caring woman with a bubbly personality. She gave us insight in the history of the Vatican, of Rome, and interesting facts about the sights during the tour. The only negative... More

Me and my family visited the Vatican in July 2014. We saw the Vatican museum, the Sistine Chapel and st Peter's cathedral. It was an incredibly interesting and fascinating place to visit. But what really enhanced the tour was our guide Chiara, who, with her extensive knowledge, dedication and friendly manner really made the visit into a long lasting memory.... More

Our tour started with some rain. Due to the very friendly guide Aurora, this was not a problem. Smiled from beginning to end, showing her knowledge and humor. Thank you for this great tour Aurora, through this magnificent part of the world. Ankie en Jo

Incredible! Definitely the way to do it. Our group of about 20 people skipped the queue, small wait in security then into the museum & hallways of incredible art and history. Giuliano was our guide & was excellent. Fun, friendly & really knew his stuff. Its a 3 hour tour, so much to see, so make sure you don't go... More

For my first visit in the Vatican I find out your guide Julianne to be purveyor insightful and entertaining. He interacted with everyone on the tour, kept a great pace, knew the important places to see, and answered all of the questions posed to him. It is definitely worth the money and I would recommend him anytime.

My husband and I made a last minute booking for a coloseum tour (the longer 4hr walking tour with when in rome) just a few days before arriving in rome. We mainly booked thinking to avoid the lines (which were huge and we did avoid thank goodness!). What we got was so much more! I would definitely recommend booking ahead... More

Chiara (When in Rome Tours) was our tour guide for the Vatican Museum, St. Peter's Basilica, Sistine Chapel and Vatacombs. She was fabulous. Knowledgeable, friendly, understandable. She had just enough of a beautiful Italian accent to sound authentic while remaining easy to understand. She has an art history background and shared her great love of the art all around the... More
