What you’ll do

In a city whose history spans 28 centuries, we obviously know you couldn’t see all of its must-sees in one day. But you’ll join one of our hosts who can’t wait to share a taste of what makes their city so unmissable with you! First things first, let us know if you have a Rome bucket list (if so, now’s the time to hand it over), or if you’ll leave it all down to your host to choose what they think are the must-see spots. There are so many directions to take; maybe you;d like to soak up the buzz at the Spanish Steps, join the crowds at the Vatican or marvel at the ruins of The Colosseum? Maybe you’ve been dreaming of making a wish at the Trevi Fountain, exploring the Forum or you’d like to cross the Tiber and explore a local neighbourhood? Along the way, you could browse a market and get right to the heart of Rome’s cuisine, try street food like supplì, fried rice balls oozing with melted mozzarella or settle in for a long and lazy Italian lunch on a piazza. We know that a city is more than a place, it’s a feeling. So even with just one day you’ll experience the feeling of Rome, and that’s pretty unmissable in our books.

  • Your experience, your pace - there’s no rush to get to everything you want to see, but you’ll certainly have a taste!

  • Enjoy lunch with your host at a place recommended by them, but chosen by you - whether you’d like to graze your way through the streets or settle in for a long lunch, the choice is yours!

Enjoyable, informative evening

My son and I met Gerardo on the first night of our trip to Rome. We were staying in Trastevere and wanted to learn more about the area. He met us promptly at our apartment and took us all around that area and beyond. We felt that we saw and learned so much on our evening. Gerardo is very enthusiastic and knowledgable. We felt as though he was sharing with us his city, that he loves. We stopped for a drink and some light bites and we also visited a shop selling Limocello, where we did some tasting (with no pressure to buy). We had thought that we would be visiting more different bars throughout the evening but instead we had a really interesting, whistle stop tour of ‘must see Rome’, with some hidden gems thrown in. This made an excellent start to our trip as we were able to go back and spend more time looking at the places that interested us. Gerardo is a really lovely guy and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening we spent with him. Highly recommended.
