Real Rome Tours

Tours of Rome and the Vatican with licensed guides

Real Rome Tours organise guided tours of Rome and the Vatican with passionate local expert guides.

All of our guides are licensed to give guided tours of Rome and the Vatican.


Our philosophy is simple: We believe that tours should be fun as well as informative. We also believe that our customers are best served in small groups. For this purpose, we strictly limit our semi-private tours to only 13 people.

We specialise in tours of Rome and the Vatican, with daily semi-private tours of the most popular attractions.

These include the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, St Peter’s Basilica, the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and Piazza Navona.

We also offer trips outside of Rome, to Ostia Antica, Tivoli and beyond – to Pompeii and Amalfi Coast, for example. Book also your transfer to and from the airport or Civitavecchia with us!

All-Inclusive Fees

Our fees are honest and reflect the small sizes of our groups. We include ticket prices in our tour fees where tickets are applicable, and we always skip the lines. Headsets are provided so you can walk around and still hear your live guide.

We take all the hassle out of booking your tours of Rome. Just book your place on our small groups, or your own private guide, and leave the rest to us!

Important Note on licensed guides:

To conduct guided tours of Rome, it is required by Italian law that your guide has the official Rome license. Always check with your tour operator that your guide will have the license. Otherwise you are breaking the law and your tour may be stopped at any time. All of Real Rome Tours guides are proud holders of the official Rome license.

We hope to see you on one of our tours of Rome or the Vatican in the near future!
