About City Wonders

Our History

At City Wonders, we’ve provided insightful and entertaining tours across Europe’s most stunning cities for more than 20 years. It all began in 2004 with one tour aimed at introducing travelers to a different side of Italy’s capital: the Dark Heart of Rome. Our founder and CEO, Simone Gozzi wanted to show Rome in a new light and was passionate about giving travelers an incredible, memorable experience in the Eternal City.  This simple premise sparked the essence of City Wonders: "Yes" to smaller groups, exclusive customer benefits, exceptional guides, and excellent customer service. "No" to over-crowded, generic tours with sub-standard guides and long waits in line.

This simple formula worked so well that we were able to expand across Rome and throughout Italy to Florence, Milan, Naples and Venice. In more recent years, we’ve developed tours in London, Paris and Barcelona, all while keeping our core principles in mind. Our hard work has paid off with thousands of 5-star reviews and recognition as the No.1 Experience Worldwide by TripAdvisor!

Millions of people have chosen us for enlightening travel experiences and have left almost 150k 5-star reviews.

Our guides are natural story-tellers, experts in their fields, and are always striving to make our tours the highlight of your trip.

With more than 150 tours across major European cities, we offer a wide variety of experiences to suit every customer.

Customer care is our #1 priority. Our dedicated team are readily available to answer any questions or resolve any issues you may have.

Our Tours

A City Wonders tour is a concoction of three crucial ingredients: thorough research, detailed planning, and a passion for providing you with distinctive travel experiences. Every year, we launch brand new tours in top destinations, as well as re-think our current range to further improve our customers’ experiences. Strategic agreements with essential venues allow us to provide exclusive privileges like No-Wait Entry, Skip the Line Access, early admission, or permission to enter areas that are normally closed to the general public. As a result, our Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel & St. Peter’s Basilica Tour has been recognized as the No.1 Experience Worldwide by TripAdvisor. No matter what the tour, we always strive to make sure your experiences of Europe’s greatest cities, monuments, and museums are stress-free, illuminating, and unforgettable.
