What you’ll do

If it’s been a while since you were in this ancient city or this is your first visit, joining one of our local Rome hosts to help you find your feet is the perfect way to get your trip off to a good start!

Orientate yourself among the tiny cobbled streets as you wander through character packed piazzas and past the perfect imperfection of historic ruins - there’s no telling what you might find.

Discover how to navigate the city's network of trams, buses and trains, get oriented in the city streets (no getting lost on our watch!), discover the briefest of histories and get tips for how to enjoy Rome like a local.

Along the way you’ll see some iconic sights - think crumbling ruins and ancient churches - and you can stop for an espresso (the locals don’t have milky coffees after lunch), a slice of pizza romana or gelato along the way.

It’s always easier to find your feet with a friend by your side, and that is exactly how it will feel with our host who will have you feeling right at home once they’ve shared their tips for where to eat, how to get around and spilled a local secret or two.

  • Kickstart your trip by going to the heart of the city and discover what makes Rome such an amazing place

  • Walk the streets with a local - you’ll be surprised at how much faster you feel at home

  • Grab a coffee, slice of authentic pizza or gelato if you’re feeling peckish

Grazie Andreea!

La nostra guida Andrea è stata molto cortese, disponibile e preparata. Ci ha accompagnato e reso la nostra visita a Roma molto personale e divertente. È stata sempre esaustiva. Il tempo trascorso con lei è stato molto piacevole e ci è dispiaciuto che fossero solo due ore, aveva ancora tanto da raccontarci!!! Complimenti x la gentilezza e la compete nza.
