- Discover the ancient arena that has become a global icon.
- Master the art of Roman cuisine under the expert guidance of our chef.
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, you’ll enjoy sweeping views of 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.

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
