Pope, Pizza, Prosecco Tour!

Our "Pope, Pizza and Prosecco" tour with Andrea was a pleasure from beginning to end. Through a nice evening walk we got to know a lot about the history of Rome, Italy and the Vatican, as well as getting a peak at some historical sights off the beaten track. Highly enjoyable and recommended!

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

Andrea gave our small party of four, aged from 13 to 70+ a brilliant guided walking tour of the highlights and hidden parts of Rome. For those of the group who had not visited Rome before, he brought history of this wonderful city alive for them. For the teenagers, the Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary was fascinating. And the hidden quiet corners were wonderful to see. He finished our tour by guiding us to a neighbourhood restaurant, where we had a delicious lunch. Andrea made sure that all our interests were catered for. Delighted we booked him for our Local Tour.

Pope, Pizza, Prosecco Tour!

We had a great tour with Andrea on Wednesday morning - he was very friendly and knowledgeable answering all of our questions about the city. The tour was excellent, it gave us the chance to see things we would not have found or understood on our own. It was a beautiful warm morning competed with great pizza and lovely prosecco. Thank you a Andrea! I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Rome!! :)

Discover Rome Like a True Local!

Andrea is both knowledgeable and passionate about Monti and Ancient Rome and revealed the contrast of the two. We walked through the narrow cobbled streets and small independent shops and food outlets of what was a poor area then around the imperial forum. Andrea explained the varied history of the forum in an entertaining and coherent manner. Thanks for a great start to our stay in Rome.

We had an excellent time with Andrea. He is very friendly, knowledgeable, patient and has a good sense of humour. As a family of four this was a great way to spend the morning getting our bearings in this amazing city. Andrea was happy to follow up with a few recommendations by text message after the walk. We would not hesitate recommending him to any visitors and will look him up again on our next trip. Excellent service all round from Withlocals.

Personalized experience with Andrea

We enjoyed an amazing custom walking tour around the heart of historical Rome with Andrea. What a great guy! He answered all of our (many) questions, knew so much history, and showed us fantastic details about all of the wonderful sights Rome has to offer. He even sent us a list of restaurants to try near our hotel, after the tour was over. I would 100% recommend Andrea, and look forward to a future visit!

Excellent , we had arrived late after travelling to Rome that day however Andrea said he would wait for us. What a very nice guy who knew his stuff, the walk was a nice pace and very informative which you just wouldn't get with other tours. A huge thanks to Andrea and all the best for the future.

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

As we know many places in Roma, Andrea has prepared a full tailored itinerary for us to discover some hidden and may be less touristic places in old (trastevere) and new Roma. As from the beginning, we met an exceptional person Andrea but more an exceptional guide very knowledgeable about history of this fabulous capital city. We feel him as a friend that we know fir a long time! A truly great experience with a local. I can only recommend him to everyone ! Thanks a lot ! Jean Francois.

Andrea was very flexible to adjust to our preferences showing Rome through the eyes of locals. He had also plenty of historical facts to support his stories.

Personalized experience with Andrea

Rome isn't just all about the Colosseum, Forum, and Vatican City. Andrea strolled us through the Monty district like no one else can. He is knowledgeable about the history and told us the background stories on each landmark. Walking with him was like walking with an old friend (even when he isn't old at all). His gelato and pastries were superb! Even his recommended restaurant was a hit! Would definitely recommend him.

Just came back from Rome where we had a 2 hour walking tour with Andrea and it was simply lovely. It was just like strolling with a friend who points left and right and gives you little stories about what you're seeing. He is so warm and friendly and on top of that, very knowledgable about history, art and architecture. He gave us great tips for restaurants as well. Highly recommended!

Andrea was recommended by a colleague, and I am so glad that he was able to give us the Hidden Gem tour.

Andrea showed us a beautiful part of Rome we would'nt find by ourselfs. He knows everything about the history and architecture and tells it in an interesting way.

Our afternoon with Andrea was a top highlight of our week in Rome. As we wandered the Forums, he told us stories that really made the history come to life! He's so passionate, and friendly, and just a really really great guy. We could've talked all day. My son (14 years old) even commented afterwards what a fantastic tour/talk it was.

... walk with a Roman. Andrea took me and my wife on a great tour through antique, medieval, baroque, renaissance and modern Rome on a three hour tour de force sprinkled with great knowledge, sincere historical interest and friendly commitment and honest love for the city and its heritage. We strongly recommend a stroll through Rome with Andrea.

Discover Rome Like a True Local!

Our first impression of Rome was not good. Unfriendly staff at the hotel, dirty streets, graffiti and lots of homeless people...then we met Andrea and Rome came alive! He was a wonderful guide and a great person too. A very knowledgable man and very keen for you to make the best of your stay in his city. Extremely helpful on where to go and where to eat. Well done Andrea and thank you for a memorable tour.

Our tour with Andrea was to put it simply - great. Andrea contacted us well in advance and met us on time in a simple to get to location. As we were looking to get orientated in Rome we let Andrea take us places but he was happy for us to drive it as we wanted. We got a very friendly and informative tour across a mix of locations. Throughout the tour Andrea pointed out places for us to come back to. His historical knowledge was very strong. A good pointer to how good the tour was, is the number of places we went to on the following day. Places like Santa Maria sopra Minerva and Il Bafetto for dinner were just awesome. All in all a really good day that set us up in Rome, thanks Andrea.

December 1, 2016

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

We had a great walk with Andrea through Rome city center. Andrea is very knowledgable about the long and rather complicated history of the city, and he told the stories with both humor and factual detail. We learned a lot about about ancient times, architecture and art, the church and its history but also about how history cross with modern times politics in ways particular to Rome. We also had time for a delicious slice of pizza from the famous Roscioli's and a great coffee. Andrea speaks perfect English and is really good company - I warmly recommend Andrea as your guide to Rome.

My wife and I arrived on November 19th in Rome around 11AM, checked into the hotel, freshened up and went by taxi to the Piazza Navona. Andrea came right on time at 2:30PM to meet us. Andrea was great, thorough, and very knowledgeable. He is passionate about the topics, and it shows. We were tired after a long flight, and he adjusted the pace. If you're looking for a great tour guide to see Rome, Andrea is the one.

A wonderful tour with the perfect guide. Andrea designed us a longer tour that allowed us to really explore the area. We were staying near Piazza Navona, and his tour really let us see the district through his eyes. It likely would have taken us twice as long, and we would have seen half the sites.
Thank you again Andrea.

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

Andrea was such a fantastic guide and his English was impeccable. My brother loves his history which clicked very well with Andrea who was so knowledgeable. Each area we visited we got to learn about its history and not just admire its beauty which without our guide would have gone amiss. Would definitely recommend Andrea who made us feel so at ease and even treated us to a cake from a local bakery!

November 18, 2016

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

Andrea was great from first booking. The communication was excellent and I even changed the time on him which he had no issue with. The tour itself was great, loved everything we saw and Andrea really knows the history and could even answer everyone of my partners questions (except for how many cats are in the city 😕) which is no easy task!! Thanks Andrea, you made our day in Rome!!

Pope, Pizza, Prosecco Tour!

We had a great trip with Andre. Andre spent half a day with myself, my husband and my two teenage stepchildren. Andre took time to get to know us all, took us on a route we would not have found ourselves and shared some really interesting information about Rome as we walked. Finished with some prosecco and pizza and we were all happy! Thoroughly enjoyed!!!

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

Walking the streets of Rome with local guide Andrea was a great experience. He knows so much and loves doing what he does. He is passionate about Rome. We saw so many details in the many works of art that we would never have seen on our own. Andrea is a really friendly easy-going guy and if you are into history, art and architecture he is a unique guide.

Andrea was a kind and calm guide, not overbearing at all. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Rome and he managed to answer every question we threw at him. Andrea took us around the Forum and the city's ancient heart, which was really interesting. We had such a wonderful time and wished he could accompany us for the rest of our trip! Would certainly contact him again and not hesitate to recommend him to other travellers. Thanks again Andrea :)

Excellent. Interesting, responsive, friendly and really shared his knowledge with us. He gave us the context for the architecture, art and the areas we visited, and reallybought the city to life. I have visited Rome a few times,and it was my friend's first visit. His selection of places to see was perfect for a taste and understanding of Rome. Including pointing out the oldest owned bakery with sister shop specialising in salami and wine where later we had a perfect lunch. We both recommend Andrea with as many stars as Withlocals have. Thank you for introducing him.

What an incredible experience! My boyfriend and I went on Andrea's tour and we could not have asked for a more knowledgeable guide. Not only was he able to answer any and all questions we had, but also had a great sense of humor as well as an overall passion for his country's history. The pizza and prosecco tasting was held in the back of quaint wine shop with the very talented sommelier and shop owner. The entire experience was one of the greatest highlights of our trip and we would definitely recommend Andrea to anyone who has a short amount of time in Rome and wants to squeeze in as much as possible!

October 17, 2016

Discover Rome Like a True Local!

We have provided Andrea with the challenge to make us Rome-lovers for life. After having seen the usual hot spots we wanted something different, with a flavour of local history, the stories you can not read in a tour guide and a personal touch of Rome from somebody who lives and breathes the place. Andrea has lifted the bar for any future city trip and has overachieved on our expectations. A great guy, fantastic knowledge, good sense of humor and absolutely fun to be with. We planned 2 hours and ended our tour almost 4 hrs later. We loved it, love Rome, and strongly recommend to meet our new friend in Rome... thanks Andrea

Andrea was amazing and so knowledgable ! It was my daughters first international trip and my first trip to Italy and we could have not asked for a better tour guide. He had so much knowledge of Italy, took us to a local bakery and even had some delicious gelato ! This was such a great way to see Rome and also have a great young man to lead us throughout the city!

We would definitely take another tour with him during our next stay in the city.

Andrea is a very nice man and incredibly knowledgeable not only about the city and its sights, but about its history, architects, artists, etc. We learned so much and saw many things we either would not have seen without him or appreciated as much. His English is excellent and he is charming and has a good sense of humor. He took a personal interest in us so the conversations were one way not just one-sided input. Cannot recommend him more highly!!

This is the first time we have used WithLocals tour and it was brilliant. We have loved it so much that we would always want to know what tours are available when we visit a new city next time. Andrea had a great knowledge about history of Rome and kept us engaged with all that he knew. We loved the walk around Monti neighborhood and we wished we had stayed longer in Rome to explore this neighborhood. The Sicilian gelato store he took us to was divine. Andrea was a great host, I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the culture rich city of Roma. Grazie Andrea :)

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

After about 2 minutes of meeting Andrea it was like knowing him for a long time, so walking and learning about Rome during our 3.5 hour tour was like taking a lovely stroll around the most beautiful city with a friend rather than a tour guide, very personal tour yet very informative at the same time. We used many of the places that we visited with Andrea throughout our stay in Rome, including the bakery he took us to, which by the way is the best in Rome, We tried others but the food didn't compare else where. Andrea has a very lovely way about him and we was very happy to have met him and spent time with him, it set us up for a very lovely visit. My favourite bit was when the lights went on over the Roman Forum it was beautiful. To take a tour with someone who is actually from the area and for it to be so personal really made a difference rather than being in a large group and listening through headphones. We would highly recommend a tour like this and with Andrea as your guide . Worth every penny Thank You Andrea
Only one thing i would change... Flat shoes ! even my comfy wedges left me sore footed :) :)

Pope, Pizza, Prosecco Tour!

This was an excellent introducion to Rome. Andrea was really pleasant, very interesting and super helpful, he even helped to arrange a surprise cake for out friends birthday. The tour was excellent and the pizza and prosecco superb. If I was to return I would do this again and book a different tour with Andrea too. Hot tip!... The bar to the right of Piazza Trilussa, where Andrea meets you, does excellent cocktails and good nibbles at really good prices but don't do the 'Antica Osteria' opposite, it's pretty awful.

His knowledge of Italian history provided us with a lot of information we either did not know or were not aware of. His passion for Rome and Italy was evident in all the details he provided us.

I plan to come back to Europe alone next year and won't hesitate to stop in Rome for a night or two to see what other tours Andrea has to offer. What a charming and charismatic guy!

We booked Andrea online from Australia before travelling to Rome.
We received several emailed confirmations together with follow up text messages once we had arrived in Rome.
We were looking for a 'snapshot' of Rome in half a day, and Andrea delivered in spades. He met us at a predertermined location, and whilst he followed the itinerary, he was more than happy to deviate if something took our interest or we wanted to find out more. He was flexible, knowledgable and accommodating.
We would throughly recommend Andrea for a walking tour in Rome.

Pope, Pizza, Prosecco Tour!

Met Andrea in Trastevere, spending about 3 hours on a walking tour through Rome up to the Gianicoli Hill (fab views of Rome from here), and finishing in St Peters Square. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about his city and we learned so many interesting facts. He is very pleasant company too! Ended in a beautiful wine shop to drink Prosecco - the shop owner discussed wines with us whilst Andrea brought in some delicious pizzas from the nearby bakery. A wonderful afternoon, lovely introduction to Rome, would book with Andrea again. Grazie!

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

As a skeptical tourist I was a little nervous about this new type of experience. We traditionally like to carve our own way, by searching sites and creating our own meaning from historical cues.

I can say with absolute certainty that this experience is a must. Rome is a city steeped with enriching history that can only be explained. Our host showed us some very amazing places that we would have missed. Things that later, as we pondered over a pizza, we would have missed and never have known we would have missed them.

The knowledge and passion that our host exhibited is unique. This is not a job for him, but a way of life and it is very enriching.

Thank you so much, and if you ever find yourself close to where we live please look us up. It would be amazing to reconnect.

Pope, Pizza, Prosecco Tour!

My husband and 2 x teenagers had a wonderful and informative tour with Andreas. We loved this tour in comparison with what the larger companies have on offer. We felt like individuals, and Andreas took us to see amazing sights in Rome which we would never have found on our own. They were as amazing as those well known sites but more peaceful and you get get up close to them. Andreas is incredibly knowledgeable and flexes what he shares based on your preferences. I have already told several peole about with locals and will absolutely look at with locals tours before any others when on holiday. Thank you Andreas for a great morning of memories. Sue and Chris

We had a fantastic time on our tour with our friendly tour guide Andrea. He was very knowledgeable about many aspects of the city and it's history and gave us a really entertaining walk around Rome. Would definitely recommend this tour, it was tailored to what we personally wanted to get from it and was lots of fun!

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

Our morning spent with Andrea was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Right from the start Andrea was friendly and engaging, he speaks English to a very high standard and his knowledge of Rome and its history made for a unique informative learning experience.
We visited parts of Rome that we would never have gone to on our own, learned more than any guidebook would have told us, and found a fantastic bakery for pastries!
Whatever the subject, whether it was Roman emperors or football and Roma it was easy to talk with Andrea, and it was interesting to learn about his business interests.
For sure, next time we visit Rome we will be in touch with Andrea to spend more time with him.

Personalized experience with Andrea

Andrea was very friendly and very knowledgeable and made the tour a real pleasure. The tour was great but you walk for quite a long time and it was an extremely hot day so make sure you take water! Fantastic end in the wine shop and generous pizza and Prosecco portions! No pressure to buy but we did as the Prosecco was lovely. We would recommend Andrea.

Pope, Pizza, Prosecco Tour!

First time in Rome for 3 out of 4 in our party and we made the best choice of our trip in choosing Andrea as our guide for the Pope, Pizza and Prosecco tour!
Andrea was the perfect guide for us. His knowledge of Rome and its history was incredible and he brought the history of the Roman Empire to life for us and along the way took us to sights and areas we never would have visited or found on our own.
We bombarded him with questions about what we saw and also about living in Italy today and came away having had a truly wonderful time.
If you're looking for a guide with extensive knowledge, good nature and a sense of humour - choose Andrea - you won't be disappointed!
Thanks again from all of us!

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

We booked the Highlights and Hidden Gems tour with Andrea and loved every minute of it! Andrea is friendly and extremely knowledgeable.

We arrived in Rome 6hrs later than planned due to a maintenance problem with our plane. I had contacted Andrea to let him know that we would not be able to make the 12pm tour. When we arrived in Rome, we had several messages from him. He was so understanding and we were fortunate to be able to reschedule our tour for later that same day,

When we arrived, he showed us around and even took us to some local places to try some Roman food. He was very engaging and kept our attention! We felt like we were with an old friend!

He knows Rome very well and it show,s. If you're looking to do a tour and want someone who is friendly, knowledgeable and engaging, then book with Andrea. We loved the tour so much that we recomended him to everyone we spoke with who was looking for something to do while in Rome. He even recommended some great restaurants and gelato places to try, which we did and they were great!. Such a friendly, easy going person! Our teenage kids enjoyed the tour as well.

Thank you Andrea for being a great tour guide and for being so accomodatring when we had to change the time..

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

Andrea is a fantastic guide. He is friendly and knowledgeable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to our friends and family. This was the second time I did a tour with Andrea as the first time I was travelling by myself and did the tour by myself. I had such a fantastic time that I asked Andrea if we could organise another tour with my partner and I when we returned to Rome which we did. My partner loved the tour and learning about the history of Rome and the local places to eat. We can't thank Andrea enough for making us fall in love with Rome. We hope to catch up with him again in Rome! Thanks Andrea!!!

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

Andrea was brilliant! My wife and i wandered around back streets and alleys finding the wonders of Roma. We could never have seen this many sites of interest on our own, without being rushed and got so much information. Very knowledgeable, from Rome and a great host what more can i say! Thank you Andrea.

Andrea was very knowledgeable and gave detailed information of all the places we visited. He also had interesting anecdotes. We walked along lovely cobbled streets and experienced the shopping districts as well as a busy gelateria with the best icecream. we would never have been able to find such a route on our own. Very enjoyable way of experiencing the city.

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

Andrea, was a fantastic guide who painted the history of Rome as we walked from site to site. He also showed me some great places to eat. As he lived close to my hotel he kindly offered to meet me outside and walk me back as I have had some difficulty navigating the streets of Rome by myself. I loved the personalised nature of the tour and cannot recommend Andrea as a guide and this experience more highly.

Pope, Pizza, Prosecco Tour!

Highly recommended
Andrea is an intelligent and engaging young man with a great passion for and knowledge of his city. We spent a delightful and entertaining afternoon in his company ending with a bite to eat and a glass of excellent proseco at a wine merchant friend of his who was equally entertaining and hospitable

We strongly recommend joining Andrea on his walk

Pope, Pizza, Prosecco Tour!

We enjoyed a great walking tour with Andrea. We started in Trastevere - an area we hadn't been before and really liked. Then wound our way up to take in beautiful views over Rome, before partaking in some local style pizza and prosecco in a wine shop - more lovely prosecco than we anticipated. Andrea was very friendly and good to talk to. He shared with us some of the history of what we were seeing which was very enlightening and helped us appreciate Rome even more. Would recommend a walk with Andrea!

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome...
Andrea is an absolute delight to spend an evening with and we so enjoyed his insight, passion and warmth while walking us through his beautiful city. As a Roman local, he invited us into his favorite pathways and piazza’s, architecture, stories and fascinating history of the extraordinary ancient city. After hours of exploration and conversation, we felt like old friends.
Mille Grazie Andrea! Warmest, R & JB

Pope, Pizza, Prosecco Tour!

An extremely interesting and informative local experience. Andrea certainly knew his stuff - from Roman and Christian history to where to find the best authentic Italian meal. The pizza and prosecca at the end of the tour were just the thing after a long walk. If you are interested in history then Andrea is the guide for you.

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome

Highlights and Hidden Gems of Rome was a fantastic way to start our holiday in Rome. Andrea was great, really friendly and interesting and very keen to make sure we had a good time and saw things of interest to us. We fitted in a lot to the 3.5 hours we were with Andrea, but could easily have carried on chatting with Andrea and hearing even more. He is very knowledgeable and we all enjoyed the tour, Rachel, Steve and our daughters L aged 12 and R aged 11. Thank you so much.
