What you'll do
Stop for lunch at an osteria or at an al fresco restaurant (even in winter, Romans love outdoor terraces and simply bring the heaters outside!), or put together your own gourmet picnic from bakeries, delis, and markets that your local recommends, so you can indulge in a Roman feast!
Your local will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, allowing you to discover other areas of Rome that you’ll love and revealing hidden gems along the way.
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 this is a food and drink themed experience, 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.

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.
