5 hours | from €60.00 pp
With a history dating back to 753BC, it’s no wonder that Rome has such an exciting heritage and rich culture! The centre of Rome is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site (not many cities can say that!), but even outside of the centre you’re literally surrounded by history everywhere you turn. Roman locals are well versed in their city’s history and are passionate about sharing that heritage, so with a local by your side you’ll discover fascinating pieces of history that you wouldn’t find in a guidebook. Walk through centuries of history, from Ancient Rome through the Middle Ages to the Renaissance, and experience the history of the Eternal City come to life as you explore with a local.

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.
