Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

My husband and I got a taxi to the Vatican not knowing what the next step was. We we're approached by a ladies who introduced us to chiara from the tour. We didn't know whether what to do. We decided to take a chance and I have to say the tour was amazing. I am not into history but I... More

We had a really memorable tour with Luigi. He is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about both the history and especially the art of the Vatican. You almost had the feeling that he found it frustrating that their are so many wonderful works of art that he really wanted to explain and discuss with us, but hadn't the time. As other... More

I went to visit the Vatican on Saturday January 17 2015 with my mum and sister. We were greeted by a sales rep once we hopped off our site seeing bus and were instantly sold on the tour. We were then told that we needed to pay at the tour operators headquarters which was about a fifteen minute walk from... More

Our guide Chiara was terrific. She was friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. There is so much to see in the Vatican and going with a professional guide makes a huge difference. Our day was well spent and we could not ask for more.

My friends and I decided to head down to Rome recently and we were searching for a Vatican tour that could fit our schedule: We only touched base in Rome in the later portion of the morning and needed one that could fill our afternoon up. After searching high and low for such a tour, we stumbled upon When In... More

We did 2 half-day tours with When in Rome: Vatican museum with Luigi and Colesseum & Forum with Chiara. Both tours were excellent. Our guides were knowledgeable, engaging and fun. They really brought the history alive for us, and especially for our 2 teenage boys. The tours also helped us to get even more out of the remainder of our... More

My partner and I booked the 'Rome in a day' full day walking tour. The meeting point was easy to find, although we went to the piazza early just in case so we enjoyed a walk around piazza venezia before all the crowds arrived which was nice. Our tour guide Toni was brilliant, full of knowledge and took the time... More

Our tour was fantastic with Christina, an American guide living in Rome for many years. She was friendly, personable and fabulously knowledgeable. Being so used to the environment she was really able to allow us to get the most of the tour and as comfortably as possible, finding hidden spots and easy routes. Naturally the tour has a joint ticket... More

Like many on here, we had Chiara as our tour guide. She was funny, remembered peoples names. Made sure the group stayed together and really made everything very interesting. The total time was close to 2-3 hours. We would really recommend a guided tour of vatican city as there was so much to see. And if possible try and arrange... More
