Why Choose It?

- Venture into the Eternal City's most enduring landmarks.
- See the city as it was as our expert guide brings Rome to life.
Rome wasn’t built in a day, but through our Best of Rome tour you can sure see it in one! This itinerary takes you on a cultural and artistic journey through the highlights of Rome, in the company of your very own expert guide. Discover the masterpieces of the Vatican Museums, skipping all lines as you do so, and enter into the pinnacle of High Renaissance art: the Sistine Chapel. Then explore the epicentre of the Christian world, Saint Peter’s Basilica, before discovering the secrets of its square with your expert guide.
We’ll then drive you straight from the Vatican to the immortal Colosseum – the quintessential icon of Rome’s ancient might. Glimpse through its concrete arches as you venture inside the apex of ancient Roman entertainment. Your tour finishes with a view over the Roman Forum where you can decompress your experience as our expert guide brings this once active center to life with myths, legends, and accounts about the rise and fall of Rome’s mighty empire.
Wander through the Vatican Museums
For such a masterpiece of High Renaissance art, some anticipation is required. We start with skip-the-line tickets to the Vatican Museums where our expert guide leads you to discover the most impressive pieces in the Vatican Museums’ collection of ancient art.
Lose yourself in Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel
We won’t let your current feeling of awe dissipate as our guide walks you down the Hall of Tapestries lavishing on you the historic tales and explanations of the mythology portrayed. Continue on to the Gallery of Maps to see the changing world over the ages. Beyond the next doors lies the Vatican’s pièce de résistance – the Sistine Chapel.
Michelangelo’s masterpiece stretches out above you, portraying a story your expert guide will narrate. Trace the brush strokes of this genius of the Renaissance, interpret the parables, and bask in the gloriously lit masterpiece.
Discover Saint Peter’s Basilica
To finalize your visit to the Vatican, a special entry led by your guide to Saint Peter’s Basilica is next. Uplifting you from the chapel, a connected passage exists in which your tour guide will lead you through to reach the grandiose basilica next door. Explore its intricate mosaics detailing the parables of the bible.
Gaze at Bernini’s bronze baldachin, lit by the aperture of the dome above- Michelangelo’s Pieta. An exit to Saint Peter’s Square where another of Bernini’s masterful works, the colonnade, can be viewed is an ideal spot to decompress and contemplate the magnificence of what you’ve just seen.
Visit the mighty Colosseum
With skip-the-line entrance, your guide will lead you through the massive arches into the colossal structure built by the rulers of the Flavian Dynasty. Your Best of Rome tour takes you through the stadium and covered passages within the Colosseum, once known as the Flavian Amphitheater. With its monumental size, it’s nearly impossible to believe it was all made in one decade, millenia ago. Walk through the ages as our personable guide tells the tales of the rise and fall of this majestic structure. Experience the fear and excitement encouraged in the masses though lively tales and historic accounts.
Finish your Best of Rome tour at the epicenter of ancient Rome
The Roman Forum is the perfect place to contemplate your 5-hour journey through time, from ancient to Baroque, in this Best of Rome tour.

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.

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.

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
