Combine Roman culture and cuisine by embarking on the True Roman experience. Over the course of six hours, your private group will discover the highlights of ancient Rome before immersing yourself in Italian food on a private cooking class.
With special skip-the-line access to the Colosseum and Roman Forum, an expert private guide able to bring ancient Rome to life, and a hands-on cooking class where you’ll master any Italian recipe you’ve ever dreamed of, the True Roman experience is a must for first-time visitors to the Eternal City.
Discover the wonders of Ancient Rome
Meeting you in your hotel lobby, we’ll drive you through the city’s storied streets to the entrance of Rome’s most iconic monument: the Colosseum. Here you’ll enjoy privileged priority access to the ancient amphitheater, stepping inside and soaking up its unique ambience.
Your private guide, an expert in Roman history, will share all the secrets of this world-famous structure. From the stories of the gladiators who fought there, from the spectacles that played out on its sands to the social conventions of Roman culture, your guide will bring the monument to life.
After exploring its many layers, you’ll tread the ancient steps of the Via Sacra (Sacred Way) and enter the Roman Forum. This was the crucible of the Roman world, the epicenter the Empire – the site of law courts, temples and forums in which the privileged and the plebs mixed and mingled.
As you discover its basilicas and temples, your expert guide will weave Roman myths and legends, recounting the story of the founding of Rome by the fratricidal brothers, Romulus and Remus. Rome’s story started on the Palatine Hill (from which we derive our word palace) and from the remarkable Roman Forum you’ll enjoy a stunning view of this incredible landmark.
Combine culture and cuisine on your true Roman experience
Exploring the epicenter of the Roman world is sure to make you work up an appetite. That’s why the true Roman experience follows your ancient itinerary with an exclusive, private cooking class. We’ll drive your private group from the Roman Forum to one of our two stunning cooking schools: one a 17th-century palazzo around the corner from Piazza Navona; the other a sleek and stylish terraced school a stone’s throw from the Pantheon.
Your private chef will greet you with a prosecco and snacks reception before you get hands-on in the kitchen recreating a range of Roman classics. Whether you dream of mastering the art of Roman pasta (amatriciana, carbonara or cacio e pepe) or crafting the perfect Italian pizza, we will customize the class so you can learn exactly what you like.
Compliment your delicious main course with a sumptuously sweet dessert, such as creamy, dreamy gelato or mouthwatering tiramisù. As the grand finale to your true Roman experience, you’ll dine on what you’ve created, in our stunning dining room and accompanied with a selection of soft drinks, wines and beers.

Sara was great and made the tour special. She has a great personality and is engaging. The chef, assistant, and team at Castel Gandolfo were all terrific to work with.
If there is one thing to do when visiting Rome after the major sites and time around the city, take this trip. read less - 12/03/2021

The driver picked us up from the hotel in Rome and drove to the Villa Adriana, where our guide, Barbara, met us. Thoroughly versed in ancient history and art history, she was a lively and fascinating guide. Never exhausting or boring, always good company, Barbara clearly loves what she does, sharing her knowledge of Rome and environs and deepening the appreciation of discerning travelers who want to learn about what they see. She was a good sport, because it was a windy rainy day, not ideal for a long day outdoors! I would definitely hire her again. read less - 11/04/2021

From the first inquiry through the tour they are also the most gracious and accommodating. Our most recent guide at the Vatican was TEO, knowledgeable, friendly, and someone who clearly loves the city of Rome. The owner of WIR, Marilena is hands on, and considers you a friend after the first tour! read less - 11/02/2021

I had some questions about the tour before booking - sent an email with responses prompt and the relevant information. We did the early morning Vatican Tour with Walks Inside Rome with our guide Barbara, who was amazing. Spending the extra money was worth the experience of WIR, in depth knowledge of the guide, early access to the Vatican and the path/route to see the highlights and relevant areas of the Vatican. Would highly recommend for anyone to book this tour, and would consider them for other tours next time in Rome! Thanks to the team at WIR and special shout out to Barbara who was so very considerate (my Mom was 89 years old and visiting the Vatican for the first time, making sure my Mom was at the front and able to see everything even though she was a tiny bit slower than everyone else! Grazie Mille! read less - 10/12/2021

I enjoy cooking, baking, etc so learning to make authentic Roman style pizza and a simple recipe for gelato is a skill I can take home! Our chef/instructor, Marco, was enthusiastic and his experience shown through as he explained what and why following the recipes was important. The kitchen space was well equipped and the dining space magical. Next time we’re in Rome (yes we tossed coins in the Trevi Fountain) we will take another course from his organization. read less - 9/27/2021

We have used them over the course of 10 years when my kids were little to now having teenagers. We have used them in multiple cities and countless tours. I want to go back on a couples trip and take cooking classes. I can’t write enough good things about them but trust me book them
and really get a sense from of Italy from
The locals. Worth every penny. Ciao! read less - 9/26/2021
