Full description
Discover Rome’s festive traditions, gourmet treats and glittering Christmas lights as you explore the city at its most magical time of year. Soak up the festive atmosphere as you stroll through the city with a local, seeing the wonderful Nativity scenes at St. Peter’s Square and Piazza del Popolo and the most beautiful Christmas lights. Wander through the Eternal City, discovering well loved local traditions and indulging in classic festive treats like pandoro or panettone and strolling through the stalls of the enchanting Christmas market in the Piazza Navona. With a local to share the city’s Christmas magic, you’ll discover the most loved traditions, getting in to the festive spirit in no time.

Join a like-minded local to explore the historic heart of Rome while the piazzas are draped in twinkling lights and the markets are adorned with traditional Christmas garlands, and soak up the festive atmosphere together. Do like the locals do and visit the famous Christmas Nativity scenes at St Peter’s Square and the twin churches in Piazza del Popolo, getting into the festive spirit like the Romans do. Wander through the famous streets like via dei Contti as well as the smaller cobbled backstreets your local will guide you through, as they’re draped in enchanting Christmas lights and admire the decorations and extravagant window displays. Visit the atmospheric Christmas market in Piazza Navona to buy gifts and try the festive culinary treats that are a well loved Christmas tradition in Rome. Learn about other Christmas traditions from your local as you explore the city and markets, maybe stopping to enjoy a glass of wine or hot chocolate.

Curious travelers will be connected to locals who are interesting and sociable people, who know the city well and who love to share their favorite places. They are not tour guides by profession. Recreate the feeling of having a friend in every city you visit; someone who can show you the places you’ll fall in love with and help you to connect with the most authentic soul of a place. Book this meet up and the local team will contact you within 24-hours and ask you questions about your preferences and interests, so they can match you with the right profile and assign a like-minded local Bolognese. Keeping in mind your personal answers, your local host will put together a bespoke itinerary just for you. Please note that this will be outlined but flexible. Your host will arrange the most convenient meeting place for you. If you feel like changing direction during the meet up or if your local host believes that you'd enjoy a sight or different experience, he/ she will suggest and discuss with you changes to the itinerary.
