Private and Small Group Guided Tours

Rome is full of energy, history, and—of course—scooters.
Rome has had many incarnations, from Etruscan enclave to hub of the ancient Roman Empire, to its role as capital of a reunited Italy in the 19th century and through to the present day. Its circuitous, scenic streets are layered with these multiple eras and hidden histories. In a single mile, you can experience everything from the rise of the Roman empire to the crypts of the medieval churches to the artistic techniques of the Renaissance. Yet Rome is constantly changing, with an exciting influx of contemporary art, design, food, and fashion adding a modern vibe to this ancient city. Unearth Rome's layers with Context's private and small group guided tours.

Rome Private and Guided Tours

We offer a wide range of private and small group guided tours in Rome, including visits to museums, archaeological sites, and food tours—all led by local experts. One of our most popular private tours is our Ostia Antica tour, during which we trek out to Ostia, the ancient port of Rome buried by centuries of mud, one of the nation's most compelling archaeological sites. Traveling to Rome with kids? Try our tours for kids in Rome, including our Ancient Rome for Kids Tour and our Vatican for Kids Tour, both of which use interactive activities, scavenger hunts, and games and feature guides trained in inquiry-based learning to make Rome come alive. Also popular is our Underground Rome Tour, in which we dig under the surface (literally and figuratively) with an archaeologist or speleologist to explore sewers, crypts, and buried temples—featured in National Geographic and on the History Channel.

Cecilia was amazing. She took the time to get to know us and understand what we already knew, what other tours we have seen, our specific interests and tailored our tour experience accordingly. She was amazing! We can’t wait to come back with family and book another tour.
Really interesting tour - the guide was so knowledgable and able to answer all our questions. It helped that she also knew all the best places to stop for quiet explanations without too many crowds etc! It is a lot of walking, but this is unavoidable at the Vatican - and Cecilia helped us find spots to sit down when possible!
Brenda was excellent. she cherry picked for us at the museum, she had an incredibly detailed knowledge of the relevant period in history and was full of advice about further reading. she was charming and helpful. just brilliant.
