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 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!

ROME, FULL DAY IN ROME WITH A LOCALUgo

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!
