What better way to turn your Roman dream into reality than by experiencing it exactly the way you want. Our exclusive My Rome Tour brings you all the benefits of exploring Rome without any of the compromises. Behind you, you have vastly experienced travel managers while alongside you will be one of our handpicked guides, whose expertise has been chosen in line with your interests.
As a completely customizable experience, our My Rome Tour gives you a truly authentic way to experience the often overlooked features of the Eternal City. You can build on an existing itinerary, create your own from scratch, or simply give us an idea of what you want to do and then let us tailor an exclusive tour just for you. So from VIP early morning or late night Vatican and Colosseum tours, food tasting sessions around Trastevere or Testaccio, cycling trips along the Appian Way or cooking classes in our converted 17th-century palazzo, you get to experience Rome exactly the way you want.
The Vatican Collection
Walks Inside Rome have the privilege of being Vatican Silver Partners, meaning we have exclusive access to the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and Saint Peter’s Basilica both in the morning before official opening and after-hours once the Vatican has closed to the public.
Our VIP Earliest Access Sistine Chapel tour is our most highly acclaimed experience, and is an unforgettable way to start your day around Rome. This tour gets you through the Vatican’s doors at 7:30 am, but if you want to start 30 minutes later we offer a slightly more comprehensive Early Morning Vatican itinerary, which takes you through such additional sights as the esteemed Raphael Rooms.
For the late(r) risers among you, we run a series of private tours around the Vatican during the day and after-hours. But the absolute best time to explore the Vatican’s vast collection is after-hours, when everything has closed to the public. This, our acclaimed Alone with Michelangelo experience, is one you won’t find anywhere else in the Eternal City.
All visitors to Rome make a pilgrimage to the Pantheon and the iconic amphitheater we call the Colosseum. Few, however, scratch below the surface and explore ancient Rome in the way it really deserves. With skip-the-line entrance on all our tours, we can get you directly inside the Colosseum any time of day. But the best time to visit is at night, in the intimacy of a small group, when you can descend below the arena floor to the eerie depths of the Colosseum Underground.
At Walks Inside Rome, we pride itself on our vast network of expert guides. Their depth of knowledge and the engaging, entertaining way in which they transmit it makes exploring the Roman Forum a truly unforgettable and enriching experience. But there is more to ancient Rome than just the Colosseum and the Roman Forum.
The Palatine Hill is home to a trove of historical treasures of its own. Recently, the House of Livia and House of Augustus have opened, along with the emperor Nero’s newly discovered palace – the Domus Transitoria. Tickets must be booked in advance and subject to availability, but our access to these sites means that, with your advance notice, if you want to see them, we have the best chance of making it happen.
The Eternal City rewards those who go off the beaten path. Away from the daytime hustle and bustle of the Vatican and ancient center lie sites seemingly kept hidden from Rome’s tourist hordes. From the famous keyhole view on the Aventine Hill to the sprawling Baths of Caracalla to the most authentic Roman neighborhood (and the city’s culinary capital) of Testaccio, Rome is home to so many places just waiting to be discovered.
Cooking Classes in Rome
When in Rome, do as the Romans do; When in Italian, eat as the Italians do. Few things in life are so rewarding as a delicious home-cooked meal, and at our cooking school near Piazza Navona we can teach you anything from pizza, pasta, and full-course Italian meals to tiramisù, gelato, and all the other sweet treats the Italians call dolci.
We’ll meet and greet you over an antipasti and prosecco reception before getting down to unleashing our inner masterchefs as we recreate the classics. At the end of the cooking class, you’ll have the chance to indulge on your culinary creation, with your choice of paired wines, beers, or soft drinks. Oh, and if sourcing your own fresh products before the class sounds right up your street, we can make a trip to the local farmers’ market beforehand too!
You haven’t experienced Rome until you’ve explored its underground. More than just the Colosseum, Rome boasts an unparalleled network of underground tunnels, temples, and catacombs, most of which are unknown even to native Romans. Beneath the Basilica of San Clemente an ancient Mithraeum lies hidden, a temple to an exotic eastern god the ancient Romans imported into their Empire.
Venture a little outside the city, along Rome’s first road, the picturesque Old Appian Way, and you come across Rome’s most remarkable underground offerings. Running beneath and alongside this ancient road are a series of catacombs, accommodating the bodies of those whose burial was forbidden inside the walls of Rome.
We can organize your visit to one of these catacombs, traveling there by car or – in the warmer, sunnier months – by bike. People consistently rate this as one of the most memorable experiences in Rome. What better reason to include it in your My Rome tour.
Customize your tour exactly how you want
Whether you want to discover some of Rome’s hidden treasures, see its highlights, enjoy a prosecco on a hilltop with a dazzling view, stroll across the vibrant stalls of a picturesque marketplace, eat the most delicious food available in town, or combine all the above, we’ll put our over 20 years of experience in tour management to your service to create an unforgettable holiday experience.
How else can you stumble upon that wine bar which serves perfect snacks, discover a charming authentic neighborhood free of noisy crowds, or visit that little-known museum which offers a delightful glimpse into Roman life and history.
The My Rome Tour can last between 6-8 hours and includes a private native guide as well as a vehicle and driver. Share your dreams of what you most want to experience in Rome – we will then develop a personalized itinerary just for you!

The location of the class is in a beautiful old building and the equipment and work surfaces are great for teaching people to cook things. The main chef and the assistants were so welcoming and explained everything well. I've been wanting to learn how to prepare and cook artichokes for ages and we got to do that in our class, which was great. You make a variety of different dishes, so learn different techniques and get an understanding of how Italians make traditional dishes. Everything you make, you get to eat and it was all delicious! read less - 5/29/2020

She took time to learn our interests (geology for my daughter) and pointed out items that spoke to that interest. She was easy to understand and speak with and our tour flowed smoothly and never felt rushed or too slow. Lea was amazing and I would definitely book with Walks Inside Rome again. read less - 11/12/2019

Lots of energy, funny stories to tell, information about the neighborhood and life in Rome. She was so friendly. She really made the evening for us. The food stops were great too, of course. We tasted Italian cheeses, cured meats, wine and fried cod, pizza, pasta, and gelato. And I might be forgetting something! Definitely no need to go out to eat after this tour! (The cost for all the food and drinks was included in the tour price). Some of the stops were so tasty we revisited them before the end of our trip.
My teenage son and I did four different tours with Walks Inside Rome on this trip and we enjoyed them all, but I think this was our favorite. read less - 10/23/2019

Unlike other cooking classes I saw when I was searching for one, this one first meets at an amazing market (I recommend going early to grab some goodies) second, you choose your meal , it’s what you and your group decide on for the day (btw it’s a lot of food some come hungry) and lastly it is all hands on the chef explains what to do, shows you an example and then it is all you (of course the chef is there to help and guide when needed). Oh o forgot to mention lots of drinking!!! Just do it, you won’t regret it. read less - 10/19/2019

She was knowledgeable, funny and able to help us navigate in a way that maximized our time and experience. We would wholeheartedly suggest spending the extra money for the private early morning tour- skipping the horrible lines and minimizing wading through the masses on overcrowded group tours. We were able to see things that other tour guides don’t have access to and learned so much without feeling overwhelmed by trying to figure out what to see as there is SO much! We would absolutely book again with WIR and Barbara! read less - 10/15/2019
