Full description

Go off the beaten track and avoid the crowds on this private guided walking tour of Rome. Bring the saying “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” to life as you uncover city secrets and find on-trend bars. Meet your guide at the Ponte Sant’ Angelo at a time suited to you. Then, escape the usual tourist traps by keeping away from the crowds outside the Colosseum or Pantheon and strolling to hidden squares and local boutiques instead. As your stroll down picturesque streets you will barely notice that Rome is one of the most visited cities in Europe. Wander down quiet alleys in some of the oldest districts to find groovy bars and restaurants and a more authentic local culture. The tour can be tailored to your own pace and interests, but the suggested itinerary will take you to a cozy street full of small boutiques and on to a hidden library with a stunning garden. Local breweries will also be on the itinerary.

Then, walk along streets full of local bars, and enter a beer café and brewery. Stroll across the Ponte Sisto to sit down in a square in the Trastevere and enjoy a gelato. Return to the city center via the Isola TIberina.

We had a very pleasant walk with interesting places that I by myself couldnot discover. Our guide was very friendly and I recommend all to take that tour. He explained our questions in detail, took us to his favorite spots and we felt we were actually visiting places that local people preferred.

Daniele the tour guide is a sweetheart! Showed us so many unique places, and his personal architectural knowledge made the tour so special. He took the care of showing different places since it’s my second time at Rome but he also mixed it with popular places since it was my husband’s first time. Incredible, some much knowledge and history shared. Highly recommend for the ones who love history and a unique experience.

Fantastic local tour with the best guide!

I loved being able to do this different tour with Chiara, punctual, she cared about knowing my interests before the tour, she took me to beautiful places in Rome that I would not have reached alone, she gave me super interesting information and we were talking all the time in a friendly way. pleasant We did part of the tour on foot, another part we did in his car, which optimizes time. 100% recommendable and unforgettable, it was the finishing touch for my last day in Rome.
