What you'll do
Behind the beauty of every crumbling ruin is a story waiting to be told, and Roman’s are well versed in their city’s history and even more passionate about sharing it with others; your local will reveal fascinating snippets of history and take you to hidden spots and reveal lesser-known historic treasures.
Discover iconic landmarks and the most famous historic sights, explore the most ancient parts of the city and climb Palatine Hill as well as discovering hidden gems, old churches and character packed alleyways in the oldest parts of the city.
Spend time getting to know your Local Host who can give you advice, insider tips and suggestions for other historic spots to visit on the rest of your trip.
What To Expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality 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 based on your literary loves, and to 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.
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.
Although you will visit relevant historic sites, your Local Host will also help you to discover unique shops, inspiring places, and independent galleries as well as sharing stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and make the city unique.

Perfect for history buffs
My partner is not so much into history as me so went on the 'eat like a roman' tour instead and let me go on this with Cecilia. It's such a privilege to be in Rome to begin with but then to share it with someone like her who clearly loves her city and its proud heritage that you cant helped but be enthused by the whole thing. I also loved that since my partner was also on a CU experience that we could arrange to meet up for lunch half way through and then go on our merry ways again. When they say they're flexible and like a friend, they mean it. Brilliant. I'm inspired and will be back!

Rome: Local sites
Had a wonderful time being shown around Rome and seeing all the wonderful sites. Had a bit of a mix up originally with City unscripted but they were able to organsie a replacement quickly. Would love to use them next time we travel. Thank you Ugo for showing us the sites.
