About When In Rome Tours
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.

Had a wonderful day with Chiara. We learned so much and gained a friend in the process. She has a zest for life which is absolutely contagious. Hopefully we can come back when this pandemic is all over and book again.

Amazing experience! Our guide Irene Amedeo was the best tour guide I have ever met. She was fun, knowledgeable and personable. It was the highlight of our Rome trip. You have to ask for her if book up. Thank you Irene. We were taken to all the city's highlights and hidden gems which was incredibly interesting memorable. Irene answered all our questions and blew our minds with loads of interesting facts. This your is a must see when in Rome. Thanks again Irene. You made our honeymoon extra special.

Our guide was Irene Amedeo and she was FANTASTIC. The best guide we have ever had. She was so warm, friendly, charming, funny and knowledgable I would recommend this company to anyone. My husband and I were on our honeymoon in Rome and had never visited before. Irene showed us everything we wanted to see and more! She even took us to the most incredibly coffee shop for a real Rome espresso and sweet treat. She acted as our photographer too which was so much fun! She told us the history of everywhere we visited in the most charismatic way and answered all our questions. We honestly could not fault her or this tour it is a must if you are new to Rome - you won’t be disappointed if you get the wonderful Irene as your guide! FANTASTICO!

London Calling! Thanks for your review! Traveling in Covid Times is not possible for many people (primarily from the US) but those who can, and those who come to Rome see a quite empty city and that in itself is quite remarkable! We are very pleased that you booked with us. More and more travelers who use the TripAdvisor site and app are booking trips and tours because of people like you who show others that beneath all the fear propagated by mass media and crazed rules changing day in day out (especially in the UK), common sense will ALWAYS prevail. THANK YOU) When In Rome Tours.

Review of: Rome in a Day
Robert was an amazing guide and full of knowledge! Our group size was small and made it easy for everyone to gather and listen to his insightful facts on the history of Rome. He has been in Rome and touring long enough to know the ins and outs of the city which means he also was able to give tips on where to take amazing pictures! Be prepared with good walking shoes and water. Bathroom breaks are along the walk, but not as often as you might think if you account for the time slots for all of the museums you need to be at on time. Choose this tour <3
