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.

It was a very hot summer day and she always looks for ways to give us the information under the shade before we went into the sun. I highly recommend this company and Martha as well. It was very easy to make the reservation and pay. We took the private tour and was perfect. 3 hours that feel like Half hour . We didn’t do any limes to get into the places. Know that if you go by yourself or in other yours you could be up to 2 hours under the sun to get into the coliseum or forum. I highly recommend the private tour. read less - 8/05/2022

This year we chose the Appian Way bike tour and the three pastas of Rome cooking class. Both of them were unforgettable!
First, the bike tour. I am a klutz, and the last time I was on a bike I had such a bad crash I never thought I’d do it again, but this was something my husband had wanted to do for a long time, so I nervously agreed. Our guid, Fabrizio, was amazing. He was patient with me and before long the beauty and aromas of the Via Appia Antica melted my fear. We got to experience the city I love so dearly I. A unique way, get some exercise, and learn so much about the city’s history. I absolutely recommend this experience, and we’re thankful we had Fabrizio as our guide. He was great!
That evening we got to celebrate my survival with the cooking class! Davide was our chef and he too was outstanding! Caccio e pepe, carbonara, and amatriciana are the three pastas. The class was wonderful. We were welcomed with Prosecco and a selection of cheeses, meats and olives. I’m a vegetarian but wanted to learn to make everything and was planning to just eat the caccio e pepe, but Davide grabbed some extra tomatoes and we made a pomodoro sauce that’s the best I’ve ever had just a wonderful experience! The location is beautiful, which adds to the ambience. Amazing as always, WIR! read less - 6/24/2022
