What you’ll do

There’s a lot to see in Rome - that’s what being the centre of an empire for a few centuries does to you! With one of our hosts by your side, however, this intoxicating city will take on an authentic air as you get to experience it through the eyes of a local. Of course, you’ll want to take in iconic attractions like the Colosseum, the Pantheon and the Vatican City, but what about bohemian neighbourhoods like Trastevere and or the ever-alternative Pigneto? With a full day at your disposal, the adventures you can have in Rome are endless. Follow your feet to new and exciting stores, markets, boutiques, galleries and museums that are to be found around every corner. Stop off and fill up on food at a local osteria, sip on espressos for that caffeine kick and challenge yourself to try as many gelato flavours as you possibly can! Snack on supplí (a typically Roman finger food) on the streets and just imagine all the history they’ve seen. Now, you get to be a part of their story too, on your very own day out in Rome!

Late night tour of Rome

Gerry did a fantastic job with our unique request in Rome. We had one day in the city and City Unscripted worked with us to create a 2hr tour of all of historic spots in Rome...starting at 10:30pm! Seeing Rome at night with a local guide was so special, Gerry knew exactly how to get us around the city to maximize our limited time. I highly suggest trying out his services, you won’t be disappointed!

Private tours w/ Cecilia

This recommendation is long overdue, but I just had to share with everyone how wonderful our local host Cecilia was during our visit to Rome. As soon as we met her, I knew we were in “good hands”, it was as if she made it her personal goal to make sure we had the most wonderful and informative time during our stay in Rome. Mere words cannot describe how awesome it was to see all the sights of the Vatican as well as all of the sights of Rome with such a delightful person who was so full of knowledge on each place we visited. It was as if she could read our minds by showing and describing everything that we were particularly interested in. As Cecila explained the history of each place we visited, I noticed that other tourists were so impressed with what they overheard, they discreetly tried to keep up with us so they too could benefit from all of her worldly knowledge. It was like having your “best friend” arrange everything so your entire trip was absolutely perfect. If you plan to go to Rome, you owe to yourself to “experience” Rome with Cecilia because you will definitely have a more enriched time then you could ever imagine. Ciao !
