Escape the Airport: See Rome on Your Layover | RomeReview by: Caitlin d
Fantastic day in Rome
I opted for the ‘Escape the airport’ excursion as I only had an afternoon to spare in Rome before my flight - Ugo was my excellent host, I literally would have been lost without him. He took me everywhere I wanted to see using routes that seemed a little off the usual paths but somehow all connected beautifully and gave me unique views of the major landmarks. He happily showed me the best local spot for gelato, simple authentic pizza and even lead me to several street musicians which I specifically asked about. We walked 22,000 steps according to my health app in just a few hours but I didn’t feel rushed at all, it was like walking around with a friend who saw me back to the station and waved me off as my train left. I’d highly recommend Ugo and the unscripted experience I chose.
