Special Offer for TripAdvisor members! Enter the promotion code TRIPADVISOR-RRT on our booking page and receive a 10% discount on any of our walking tours. Real Rome Tours is a small team of local guides, licensed and experienced in giving guided tours of Rome and the Vatican in English. Although all of our guides are licensed tour guides in Rome and the Vatican, they each have our own areas of expertise. We have archaeologists, art historians, and university lecturers among our ranks, and as our reputation has grown we continue to invite similarly-qualified guides to join us. Our philosophy is simple: We believe that tours should be fun as well as informative. We also believe that our customers are best served in small groups. For this purpose, we strictly limit our semi-private tours to only 13 people. Our fees are honest and reflect the small sizes of our groups. We include ticket prices in our tour fees where tickets are applicable, and we always skip the lines. Headsets are provided so you can walk around and still hear your live guide. Our customer base and reputation have been growing steadily over the past few years, and we promise to continue to strive to deliver the perfect Rome experience for all our future guests. We hope to see you on one of our tours in 2016!

A wonderful tour - our guide Alessio was great, it was an unforgettable afternoon! Well worth doing the underground and top floor tour. Much quieter in those places than in the main areas, so you feel more of an atmosphere - and get stunning views....More

We truly enjoyed the tour and felt Heidi was very knowledgeable about the sites. She did a great job. We were happy to start our tour early to beat the crowds. We will recommend this tour to our friends!

We have a wonderful tour guide, who was also an archeologist. She was able to give us so much information on the history and the original designs of the buildings.

We took a 3.5 hour group tour of the coliseum (including underground and upper levels, accessible only with very special tours), Palatine Hill, and the Forum. Our guide Nick was superb. He made the sites come alive.

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
