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 local Rome 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!

  • Spend the day with your host who will create an experience that's fully customised to your interests and what you'd most like to see in Rome

  • See Rome's most iconic attractions or get off the beaten path - the choice is yours!

  • Gain a unique insider’s perspective as you explore the city

  • Discover the highlights of the area or neighbourhood that you explore

  • See the real Rome that you wouldn't find in a guidebook - those things are heavy to lug around anyway

  • Eat and drink like a local, picking up street food from a market or stopping off at an authentic local osteria

  • Get tips from your host regarding other areas to explore and exciting things to do on the rest of your trip

Reviews for this experience

A very full day in Rome

We had a great day in Rome with Gerry! It was extremely packed with all of the amazing sites we could fit into 8 hours on a +40 day. From the Colosseum, Trevi fountain, spanish steps, the forum, the pantheon, oh my gosh! It was an amazing sight to see all of the history mixed in with the new of Rome. It was a little crazy... the traffic was intense, but Gerry made the walk so entertaining and informative. We especially loved the church (that us girls snuck into) sorry... but it was not to be missed. The paintings were fabulous and the fresco on the ceiling... I still see it. Gerry, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our 1 day so special!!!

Friendly and knowledgeable host

Our family of five (mum, dad, and three grown-up daughters) had a great full day, history and art-themed tour of Rome with Ugo. Ugo is an engineer by education but an artist by choice. His knowledge of his home city is exemplary and his enthusiasm for all types of art was very engaging. He gave us, as first-time visitors, a really good idea of the layout and history of the city and its key areas and also knows some of the best places for gelato and other cooling delicacies on a hot day.

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!
