Indulge in the gourmet treats that Rome is famed for and taste local delicacies throughout the day; enjoy lunch at a local osteria, sip an espresso and stop for gelato or to try supplí in the afternoon, at hand-picked places that suit your preferences, budget, and dietary requirements.

What To Expect 

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality, tastes, and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.

Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do and eat. 

Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.

Private tours w/ Cecilia

This recommendation is long overdue, but I just had to share with everyone how wonderful our local host Cecilia was during our visit to Rome. As soon as we met her, I knew we were in “good hands”, it was as if she made it her personal goal to make sure we had the most wonderful and informative time during our stay in Rome. Mere words cannot describe how awesome it was to see all the sights of the Vatican as well as all of the sights of Rome with such a delightful person who was so full of knowledge on each place we visited. It was as if she could read our minds by showing and describing everything that we were particularly interested in. As Cecila explained the history of each place we visited, I noticed that other tourists were so impressed with what they overheard, they discreetly tried to keep up with us so they too could benefit from all of her worldly knowledge. It was like having your “best friend” arrange everything so your entire trip was absolutely perfect. If you plan to go to Rome, you owe to yourself to “experience” Rome with Cecilia because you will definitely have a more enriched time then you could ever imagine. Ciao !
