In a city whose history spans 28 centuries, we obviously know you couldn’t see all of its must-sees in one day. But you’ll join one of our local Rome hosts who can’t wait to share a taste of what makes their city so unmissable with you!

First things first, let us know if you have a Rome bucket list (if so, now’s the time to hand it over), or if you’ll leave it all down to your host to choose what they think are the must-see spots.

There are so many directions to take; maybe you;d like to soak up the buzz at the Spanish Steps, join the crowds at the Vatican or marvel at the ruins of The Colosseum?

Maybe you’ve been dreaming of making a wish at the Trevi Fountain, exploring the Forum or you’d like to cross the Tiber and explore a local neighbourhood?

Along the way, you could browse a market and get right to the heart of Rome’s cuisine, try street food like supplì, fried rice balls oozing with melted mozzarella or settle in for a long and lazy Italian lunch on a piazza.

We know that a city is more than a place, it’s a feeling. So even with just one day, you’ll experience the feeling of Rome, and that’s pretty unmissable in our books.

    • Explore some of the best of Rome with a local - what could be better?
    • Experience what you want out of the city - the sights, the markets, the communities, the galleries and museums...the ball is in your court
    • Your experience, your pace - there’s no rush to get to everything you want to see, but you’ll certainly have a taste!
    • Enjoy lunch with your host at a place recommended by them, but chosen by you - whether you’d like to graze your way through the streets or settle in for a long lunch, the choice is yours!
    • Get recommendations for places to eat, visit and things to do during the rest of your trip
    • This experience will be personalized to you!
