We specialize in Private Tours throughout Italy's main destinations, Tailored Tours for those with special needs, and Interest Tours for groups, such as schools ,with a particular area of interest.
Its all about you
We offer private tours in all of Italy's main destinations and our guides in each city and every town are the best in the business. When touring privately there is much more flexibility compared to when touring with a group, you have the guide all for yourself. You can move when you want to, spend more time (or less) at certain locations, create your own itineraries and most importantly let the guide focus solely on you.
Touring privately is the best way to go when you are visiting Italy as there is so much to see in each destination. With a private guide you have the ability to do and see everything that you want to without the fear of missing out due to some limitations with a group. All of our guides throughout Italy are professionals, we are very knowledgeable and happy to accommodate with a smile. We have chosen our profession for a reason, we love what we do.

It is a great way to tour for families with children of any age, as we have the ability to focus on keeping everyone happy and interested. When touring privately with us and we make sure that everyone in your party leaves with a smile.
Go Further, Get More :
Private tours allow you to go further, see more, do more, experience more and allow for a more rewarding time in Italy. We can get you to the hard to reach places visiting fascinating sites which are not often seen. As you are the only ones on the tour, we can go as far as you are willing to go. Weather it be climbing to the top of Piazza Michelangelo to have a view of Florence, or descending into the darkness of Rome's Ancient Catacombs. Anyway you look at it, we can take you further.
Some sites in Italy can be difficult for those with limited mobility. Whether you are in a wheelchair, recovering from a hip replacement or just ate too much for lunch, we can take you on the path of least resistance. This ensures that you are comfortable and enjoying yourself throughout the course of the visit. Around the time of the annual Rome Marathon we even have requests for jogging tours of the city. So in case you would like to speed things up, we will be able to set the pace.
Special Interests :
If you have special interests in a certain site, building, painting, time period, shopping district, or anything else, we love to cater. All of our guides are extremely well informed but of course, we each have our favourites. With that being said, we have experts in almost every area and can focus on whatever you please.
Insiders Advice :
With your own private guide you are not bound by others in the group which gives you a better opportunity to really engage with your guide. As all of our guides in were either born in Italy, or have lived here for many years. We know a lot more than just the sites and can provide great suggestions and tips to suit your needs. Don't get caught in tourist traps, get what you came for, a unique and wonderful experience of Italy.

Large Groups : Schools, Pilgrimages, Wedding Parties & More
We can accomodate...
Roman Candle Tours also specializes in the organisation of large group travel and tours in Italy. With our vast connections with hotels, busses and sites we can accommodate groups of any size, for any occasion. Whether you are arriving on a school trip, in a wedding party, with a pilgrimage or for business, we will make sure that your group has everything you need as soon as you arrive in Italy.
Our large group tours cater to parties of all shapes and sizes and we always do our best to make it a unique and personal experience for everyone so that you are not lost in your own group. To mention a few, we have taken care of school groups from America, wedding parties from Holland, pilgrimages from Reunion, business events for International companies and even football (soccer) teams from England. Below, you can see what we we are capable of doing in order to accommodate your group coming to Italy.
: We work with the best and safest bus companies in the country. If you are looking for transfers to or from the airport or hotel then have us be the ones to pick you up. Also, if you are visiting more than city during your time in Italy we can make sure you all arrive together, safe and sound. Please see 'Bus and Limo services' for more information and booking.
: With our good friends at
Italy Hotels Direct
we can arrange great group accommodation to fit any budget, always at the best price. Our relations with hotels are superb and we know the best hotels in each destination.
Keeping on subject
: We often have requests from school groups who have come to Italy for different reasons, some for art, some of architecture, some for history, and some just for fun. We have many guides who are experts on many different subjects so if you would like to keep focused on a certain subject matter then we will be able to provide a professional guide at your request.
: Italy is a top destination for religious groups and we know how to make these visits rewarding and unique. Of course you wish to see the must see sites of Catholicism but there is much more which can be done than a simple visit to a church. As an example, we can arrange special services such as having your local priest conduct masses for your group of pilgrims in some of the beautiful churches in Italy. We can ensure that your spiritual visit to Italy is ever more fruitful.
Events, Dining & Drinks
: With our knowledge and connections, we can arrange things that may seem out of reach to many. For example, if your group would like to have dinner on a rooftop terrace overlooking the Colosseum, it can be done. When celebrating a special event, we can organise location rentals, so that you, your friends and colleagues have the whole place just for yourselves, in privacy. We know our cities inside and out and are able to ensure that your events are cut above the rest.
