Hey there! I'm Elena, your local host here in Rome! What I adore most about Rome is its energy and diversity which never fail to enchant me. Whether you're strolling through bustling streets or discovering tranquil alleys, there's always something new to uncover. As a lover of literature, I'm always scouting out cozy bookstores and serene reading spots. Art and history? Count me in! I'm your go-to for museum and hidden art gems. And when it comes to food, I know the perfect spots for any vibe, from local trattorias to trendy cafes. But the best part of Rome is the shopping - I'll lead you to the best flea markets and vintage boutiques in town. Being your Rome guru, I know the streets of Rione Monti, Testaccio, and Trastevere, like the back of my hand! I'm here to ensure you have an unforgettable experience. Let's explore this amazing city together!
