Select Date and Travelers

    What to Expect
    How does it work?

    Book a meet-up with CityUnscripted. We will contact you within 24 hours and ask you question about your preferences and interests, so we can match you with the right profile and assign a like-minded Local Roman. He or she who will become your local host. 

    Keeping in mind your personal answers we will put together a bespoke itinerary, just for you. 

    We will arrange a meeting with your local host in the most convenient place for you. If during the meet-up you feel like changing direction, or your host believes that you'd enjoy a sight or different experience, he/she will suggest and discuss with you changes to the itinerary. You will tell us how long you'd like your meet-up and itinerary to be, this can be as short as 1 hour or as long as a whole day.

    Enjoy discovering amazing spots in Rome that you don't know about and are difficult to find in any guidebook or on the Internet, because they are lesser known to the crowd but beloved by Locals! The day revolves around your wishes so enjoy your private meet-up and let your Local show you the Rome you will love.

    As our first visit to Rome, my wife and I decided to book a local to show us the real Rome. Our guide Alessandro was fabulous. Polite, attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. He showed views and areas of Rome we would never have seen. Lunch at one of Rome’s oldest pizza ovens was

    We had such a great time with Gerry! He was loads of fun and laughter... because we only had 8 hours in Rome, he showed us the most important tourist sites in the City Center as well as a few non touristy things along our day. He took us to a cute little bistro for lunch and

    Hi there! Good to hear you had a great time with Christi! He's a great host and really loves his city. He's a sociable person and I know that he also enjoyed your company, it was just like having friends (our uncle & auntie!) visiting from abroad. Hope to connect you with another excellent Local Host in one of our many destinations next time you travel. Best Wishes, Nick - CEO
