Rome: Highlights of the City Tour with a Local

2. Rome: Highlights of the City Tour with a Local

Your dolce vita adventure begins where the famous film was written by Italy’s greatest film director, Federico Fellini. Enjoy a stroll down the Via Margutta, a street famous for inspiring painters, sculptors, artisans, poets and musicians and learn about the artists that have lived here through the centuries. Pass by the home of Fellini where he lived with his actress wife Giulietta Masina and as you do you guide will talk a little of about his life and career. Staying with the Hollywood theme, then check out the house that stood in as Gregory Peck’s home in the iconic Audrey Hepburn movie Roman Holiday. Nearby, stumble across the apartment where Pablo Picasso lived, over 100 years ago. Stop at a local cafe that was once the private art studio of Antonio Canova, a well-known and respected sculpture artist of the 19th century. Admire the elaborate marble sculpture as you enjoy a true Roman Espresso (your guide will teach you how to order it, the Roman way) and listen to your guide talk about Italian coffee culture and the many local roasters that have sprung up around the city center. Your next stop is the Monumental Staircase. A total of 135 steps lead to the Trinita del Monti church that overlooks the Spanish Steps and the Barcaccia Fountain by Bernini. As you wind your way through the atmospheric Roman streets, heading towards the Trevi fountain, stumble across one of the local partner's favorite wine bars, where you will stop to taste local wine from the foothills of Rome, accompanied by local salumi, cheese (including Pecorino Romano) and delicious focaccia bread. Visit the world-famous Trevi Fountain, which has become the stuff of legend since Anita Ekberg’s midnight frolic caused an international sensation in the 1960 movie that’s given our tour its title. Pass through a shopping gallery dedicated to Roman legend and comedy actor, Alberto Sordi and arrive at the Pantheon, one of the world’s greatest and best-preserved Roman temples. Your taste of the Roman good life will end at the Piazza Navona, site of the spectacular Four Rivers fountain by Bernini. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your expert local guide for more tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay in ravishing Rome.

This tour was a great way to start off our visit to Rome! The espresso and food were delicious and the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about not only the tasting experience, but in offering us helpful tidbits about the city. She taught us how to order espresso (a process I didn't realize would be so different from the U.S.!); that there were 2500 fountains all around Rome that offered free, clean drinking water; and relayed interesting cultural backstory about the statues and piazzas we passed. This guidance helped make our experience throughout the week so much smoother and more pleasant than it would have been. We ended up getting to try espresso prepared three different ways, two kinds of gelato, and a tiramisu. Our guide was so accommodating: The tiramisu place had sold out of it by the time we got there and she quickly ordered us tiramisu-espresso (bonus!) and booked us at another shop that made excellent tiramisu as well. Friendly, exciting, tasty way to start the week!

Our guide was fabulous. She went above expectation for the tour.

The grenita was amazing. The gelato (to die for). The espresso blew our minds (we went nack gor another one the next day) and the tiramisu was the piece de resistance. Thank you for a wonderful, informative & delicious 2 1/2 hours. Liz, Bruce & Blair

The best of Rome

Valeria was great, she took us through the best spots in Rome and talk about those things you only understand when someone who has been raised in Rome explains to you.

Got a private tour because no one other booked. Kind guide with lots of knowledge about the coffee and gelato!

Everything was unique and tasty, we especially enjoyed the tiramisu. A great way to see the neighbourhoods
