Our Rome Private Tours Recommendations to Explore Rome at Your Own Pace

Let’s now take a closer look at our very best private tours in Rome. We’ve selected them based on category, taking care to discuss one example in five of our most popular categories.

1. Private Vatican Tour

Touring Vatican City with a private Rome tour guide is a fantastic idea! Even though this is a classic tourist attraction in Rome, the You Local Rome team lets you experience this majestic place in a totally different and exciting way.

As the heart of Christianity, a country within a city, the Vatican oozes mystery and magnificence, humility and decadence, all at the same time. It’s a fascinating place to visit, home to some of the world’s greatest cultural landmarks.

On our private Vatican tour, travelers get to explore three mandatory locations within the Vatican: the Vatican Museums, St. Peter’s Basilica and Square, and the breathtaking Sistine Chapel.

2. Private Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour

Rome is, of course, renowned around the world for being one of the origins of modern civilization. Ancient Rome is arguably the most well-known and iconic superpower of Antiquity, famous for its military campaigns, technological innovations, sculptural art, imposing monuments and architecture, and gladiators.

As such, Colosseum tours in Rome are basically a must when visiting the Italian capital for the first time. It’d really be a shame to miss these world-class attractions. And they’re even better with a private Rome tour guide!

Our own Ancient Rome and Colosseum private walking tour takes travelers to magnificent places like the Colosseum itself, the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.

It’s a wonderful way to discover the treasures of Ancient Rome. Participants will enjoy listening to stories of Roman gladiators and gods, and see beautiful landmarks like the Circus Maximus and Temple of Julius Caesar.

3. Private Food Tour of Rome

As the capital of Italy, which is one of the world’s culinary hotspots, Rome could rightly be regarded as one of the top food cities in the world. Therefore, we also offer private food tours of Rome, so that visitors can go beyond the architecture and art, and also literally smell and taste an aspect of Roman culture. Rome is, after all, much more than the Vatican and the Colosseum.

On this delightful culinary journey, a local expert will guide participants through the heart of Rome on a search for the city’s best food. The tour kicks off at the historic Campo de’ Fiori Market, the perfect place to learn about the traditions of Italian farmers and seasonal produce.

It also takes visitors to the historic bakeries and “secret” food shops in the Jewish district and Pantheon area. There, amazing street food that only locals know about awaits. Our private food tour in Rome features no fewer than eight different food tastings, to be enjoyed while exploring Rome’s historic core.

4. Private Family Tour of Rome 

Rome is a wonderful city, where every street, every corner overflows with history and beauty. Visiting Rome as a family is a constant marveling and taking pictures, stopping, reading the guidebook and then stopping again for another wow of wonder.

In this way, however, time is stretched. For an impatient toddler, this experience is likely to become…too much! Can you imagine a child of a couple of years in line to enter St. Peter’s Basilica? Or head up among the silent halls of the Vatican Museums?

That’s why we place value on our private child-friendly tours, which are designed to be a lot of fun for the whole family.

In particular, it will be necessary to alternate wisely:

5. Private Day Trips from Rome

Rome is also an ideal base from which to organize private day trips outside the city. You Local Rome has an extensive schedule of private day trips from Rome to the surrounding area with our professional guides. 

  • Sunshine, small towns overlooking the sea, great food and a unique historical heritage: this is the Amalfi Coast, UNESCO Heritage site. Here high cliffs meet the sea and hide small bays, and its towns are home to high-fashion stores and artisans’ workshops.
  • The most precious gem in Campania, an enchanting place, one of the most extensive royal residences in Europe, even more than Versailles: Reggia di Caserta is Luigi Vanvitelli’s masterpiece surrounded by the English Garden.
