What you’ll do

Imagine exploring Rome with an old friend, spotting famous attractions, chatting over aperitivo, mingling with the locals and snapping selfies. That’s something like this personalised experience of Rome will be like with one of our local Rome hosts, who can’t wait to share what they love about their city with you.

Wander through colourful piazzas and bright, lively neighbourhoods punctuated with restaurants, bars, markets and street performers like historic, humble Trastevere.

You could explore ancient sights such as the Colosseum, which evoke the power of the former Roman Empire, or take in the wonders of Vatican City, where you can discover artistic masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes.

Your half a day in Rome with a host will be a whirlwind as you take in its heady mix mysterious ruins, awe-inspiring art and vibrant street life and, while you will never be able to explore it all in half a day, you can enjoy a taste!

Speaking of, did someone say pizza romana?

Trastevere tour

Speechless. Gerry could not have been more gracious. We were late-not on purpose-and he was so understanding. His knowledge of “Roma” was extensive and his English, which is my primary language was excellent. Had time permitted we would have scheduled additional tours with him.
