Our Story

ProRome Tours was founded in Rome in 2014, when our founder Joe Long experienced a profound desire to share his passion for faith, history and travel on unique travel ventures across Italy. A citizen of the USA and Italy and a student of history, Joe set out in 2014 leading groups through the greatest sites of Il Bel Paese

In 2016, ProRome began its expansion outside of Italy: north, south, east and west. Partnerships with travel professionals throughout Europe and the Holy Land were developed, and before long ProRome’s groups were visiting the British Isles, western and central Europe, and the Holy Land. Since then ProRome has hosted several thousand clients on hundreds of different touring programs, from Rome to Jerusalem and from Edinburgh to Athens. Although the vast majority of these tours have featured Europe and the Holy Land, ProRome has also organized and operated a number of tours to Mexico.

ProRome’s goal is to create custom travel experiences filled with purpose, and pilgrimages, student groups and private organizations have been among ProRome’s new and recurring clientele. ProRome currently employs ten staff members, relying as well on dozens of local guides and agencies to successfully operate each tour.
