Roman Candle Tours offer excellent and affordable guided tours around Rome and the Vatican City as well as Florence, Venice, Pompeii and other must see cites. All of our lively and enthusiastic staff have lived in Italy for several years and are well equipped with the knowledge and experience to reveal this fascinating nation. We are dedicated to sharing information with our guests about the rich history, mythology, legends and scandals that Italy has seen; and the amazing stories these cobbled streets and crumbled temples have to tell.
