HOW CAN I ENJOY ROME AT ITS BEST?

PIZZA, COFFEE, SHOPPING, BUS, METRO AND CABS: how come can they get a cab so easily and I cannot?, where do they buy bus tickets and stamps, where is the best ice-cream shop and finally why am I the only one drinking cappuccino in the afternoon and eating pizza at lunch here?!

…a baguette in Paris, a yellow cab in NY and…what about Rome?! Don’t worry since we have the answers to your questions; we will be the friend in town you need, so as a result you will not feel lost nor a confused tourist!

WHAT YOUR GUIDEBOOKS DON’T SAY

Having a local guide all for you for 2 hours, sitting with you and ready to answer to all your questions will give you the unique opportunity to understand the city from an exceptional point of view: the insider’s one!
First of all we will ask you to ask all the questions you have and then we will go through the heart of the city together, map in your hands and pen ready to get all the tips! After this meeting, you will be able to admire Rome’s beauty and learn about its history knowing how the city works and understanding the secrets of locals life!
