My most exciting things to do in Rome

Your perfect Local will share your interests, personality and passion for meeting like-minded travelers, as well as understanding your lifestyle, language and culture. Whatever your interests are, we can connect you with a like-minded Local who can’t wait to show you the places you’ll love to visit, eat at venues where the food is to your taste and share a side of their city that they know will captivate you! But some of our Locals' favourite things to do in Rome are browsing avintage market that pop ups in a different location every month, eating traditional local street food: fried artichokes and supplì whilst sitting in historic piazzas, soaking up the myths and magical stories of the city (as told by locals!), exploring crumbling hidden churches with regal interiors, escaping the city to the Aqueducts Park and enjoying aperitivo in Campo de' Fiori.

Cycling excursions? Worth a try ! Faster and funny ! I love my city and I’m proud to show it to visitors. My walking excursions in the City are the ideal way to enjoy it with someone who knows it well. I cycle to work and around the city for pleasure so if you like cycling we can arrange to see it by bike. (A completely different experience) I'm 52, I work in an IT Company but studied Art at Classical High School and have a passion for history. I have lived in Rome all my life so can help with the practical stuff as well as the sights, (even the hidden ones that only a local would know).

Hi! Well, I'm Andreea. I love my city and its people because its always interesting, beautiful, cultural and full of surprises. I am really good with people since I work in tourism and hospitality, and I'm great for travellers with kids too! When I'm with someone showing them around I always understand what people need and of course I can translate anything you wish. I know a lot of curious things and have great cultural interests. If you need someone who knows Rome, I am the one you're looking for!
