Rome Vacation Tips brings our considerable expertise about visiting Rome to select nothing but the absolute best tours and providers for you. This curated collection reveals new sides to classic sights, and unlocks parts of the city that most tourists never see.
All of the tour operators that we promote in our Tours section are personally known to and endorsed by us, based on our years working in the Rome travel business.
By booking tours with the operators we recommend, more of the fee goes to the people who deserve it, and much less to the middlemen.

Our tour philosophy
When we recommend specific tours, we use our considerable expertise about visiting Rome to select nothing but the absolute best tours and providers for you.
We do not work with companies such as Viator, GetYourGuide, or TripAdvisor, as they all charge a huge commission to independent operators, severely denting livelihoods in a sector that has already suffered significantly during the pandemic.
Instead, we go direct: all of the tour operators that we promote in our Tours section are personally known to and endorsed by us, based on our years working in the Rome travel business. By booking tours with these providers, more of the fee goes to the people who deserve it, and much less to the middlemen.
The small print: Rome Vacation Tips endorses our tour providers, but any transaction carried out between you the client and a tour operator is a relationship between you and the specific operator. Any issues or queries about a specific tour should be addressed directly to the operator with whom you booked using the contact details they have provided.
