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.

When In Rome Tours was spectacular. I couldn't ask for a better experience. I used When In Rome for one of our Transfers and a Vatican, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's tour. Transfer - I had already booked my transfer from the airport to the hotel before I was recommended WIR so I had something to compare it to. I... More

We had a tour with Cristina Zadro: she was very nice and polite and presented information in a simple and precise way, allowing us to see and understand. Even if there was a lot of people and other tour leaders were not kind, she reacted in a good manner. Show enthusiasm, we introduced us to the Vatican and the story... More

My husband and I participated in the "Vatican, Vatacombs, St. Peter's" tour led by Cristina and enjoyed ourselves from beginning to end. Cristina is very informative while being extremely charismatic. We both highly recommend this tour.

Tour guide is very good. He is very knowledgeable about the Vatican. He made it sound very interesting and his passion for his job is very obvious. It was very hot on the day but it did not deter him at all. I would highly recommend him

Chiara was our tour guide for colleseum and Roman forum. She says amazing, most knowledgeable tour guide in Rome. Blew is away with her knowledge. Then Sabrina took us through the Vatican, another knowledgeable for guide. I wouldn't do Rome any other way. Simply amazing.
