Tour description

Want to experience Rome's best sites and learn to cook a delicious Italian meal all in one day? Looking for the perfect tour for eager kids and curious adults alike, who want to see the cultural highlights of the Eternal City with limited time. Then this is the perfect experience for you.

Triple the Roman Experience by roaming the Rome of the Popes, following in the footsteps of the Caesars, and mastering the art of Italian cuisine in our prestigious centrally situated cooking school. After this full-day experience, you’ll feel you’ve fully explored the Eternal City and enriched yourself with knowledge and know-how on Italian culture and cuisine.

Step inside the Vatican to explore the Museums and Sistine Chapel

The first part of your Roman experience guides you through the unmissable highlights of the Vatican's vast collection. Your expert guide will bring you face-to-face with the Vatican's treasures, from the stunning sculptures of the Gallery of the Candelabra, the ornate artworks of the Gallery of Maps, and the astonishingly intricate designs of the Gallery of Tapestries.

If there's something in particular you'd like to see, just let your private guide know. You can stop off at the Raphael Rooms to discover the phenomenal frescoes, which mahy believe rival those of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel. We'll then process towards what most consider the pièce de résistance of Michelangelo's Roman legacy: the Pope's private Sistine Chapel.

Enter Saint Peter's Basilica through a secret passageway

No Vatican visit would be complete without stepping inside the spectacular Saint Peter’s Basilica. Standing at the center of the Christian world on the site where Saint Peter was buried, the largest church in Rome boasts more than just its scale. Its stunning mosaics and awe-inspiring artworks, such as Michelangelo’s Pietà and Bernini’s Baldachin, feature among the most inspirational achievements of western art.

Your Vatican experience comes to a close in the center of Saint Peter's Square. Under the shadow of the Vatican Obelisk, brought here by the emperor Caligula in the 30s AD, you'll be perfectly positioned for an appreciative perspective of Bernini's perfectly proportioned colonnade surrounding you.

We’ll drive you from the Vatican to the Colosseum

After fully exploring the Vatican, we’ll make our way to the mighty Colosseum. Still standing strong after almost 2,000 years, this amphitheater has witnessed some astonishing spectacles within its storied grounds - from gladiatorial combats and wild-animal hunts to criminal executions and mock naval battles.

Your expert guide will bring the Colosseum to life, recounting the stories of its imperial spectators and the tragic tales of its gladiatorial participants. Follow in the footsteps of the Caesars as you explore its millennia-old structure and unlock the many secrets of Rome’s most iconic monument.

Journey into the Roman Forum

No journey through the Eternal City would be complete without a visit to the Roman Forum. Your guide will walk you through the triumphal arches, temples, and basilicas of what was once the beating heart of the ancient city, revealing the sites of history’s most significant events and regaling you with stories that will bring the Forum’s monuments to life.

From the Forum, we’ll then climb the Palatine Hill, the most famous of the Seven Hills of Rome. It was on the Palatine that Romulus founded the ancient city and where subsequent kings and emperors built their palaces. Travel back through time as you climb the Palatine and listen to your guide breathe life into its ruins. 

Be welcomed at our school with a prosecco and snacks reception

Your third and final experience is a cooking class at one of our two stunning locations: just around the corner from Piazza Navona or a stone’s throw from the Pantheon. After welcoming you with an indulgent prosecco and antipasti reception, our professional English-speaking chef will teach you the art of Italian cuisine in a fun and friendly cooking class.

We can adapt the menu according to what you want to make and your level of expertise. So whether you’re longing for some pizza, want to master the art of Roman pasta, or need to satisfy your sweet tooth with some gelato or tiramisù, we can customize the course just for you.

Indulge in your homemade meal after class

At the end of your hands-on cooking class, take your seat so you can linger over the delicious meal you’ve made, paired with specially selected wines and soft drinks. Best of all, we’ll email you all your recipes at the end of the class so you can impress friends and family by recreating these recipes at home. Perfetto.
