Special Offer for TripAdvisor members! Enter the promotion code TRIPADVISOR-RRT on our booking page and receive a 10% discount on any of our walking tours. Real Rome Tours is a small team of local guides, licensed and experienced in giving guided tours of Rome and the Vatican in English. Although all of our guides are licensed tour guides in Rome and the Vatican, they each have our own areas of expertise. We have archaeologists, art historians, and university lecturers among our ranks, and as our reputation has grown we continue to invite similarly-qualified guides to join us. 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. 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. Our customer base and reputation have been growing steadily over the past few years, and we promise to continue to strive to deliver the perfect Rome experience for all our future guests. We hope to see you on one of our tours in 2016!

We were so excited (and not disappointed) to see the Colosseum, underground included, but were so impressed by the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill portions of this tour ... absolutely stunning! You know you are going to get a history lesson on a tour like...More

We've taken a number of group and semi-private tours in the past which were humdrum, so we almost opted for a self-guided exploration. What a mistake that would have been! Ferdinando was tremendously helpful and well prepared - he had a messenger bag filled with...More

Marley, our tour guide did an outstanding job with the tour. She was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. I highly recommend this tour especially if you would like to see all the accessible areas of the Colosseum.

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
