Absolutely FANTASTIC!!!!
Words cannot express how much we appreciated what Francesca (with the help of her wonderful parents) did for a group of 16 strangers. It was like a big family party at a relative's house. The food was incredible -- from amazing cheeses, tarallini, olives and other appetizers -- to a great lasagna, chicken cacciatore in a white sauce, fabulous tiramisu, elegantly served in tea cups, after-dinner drinks, coffee, etc. But the best thing was just the hospitality and friendliness that this family showed to people who started as strangers and ended the evening feeling like a part of the family. Francesca even went so far as to line up a driver for all 16 of us, from our hotel on the other side of Rome, and make reservations for us in an enoteca for a before-dinner drink and experience. Then she gave us the name of a great pizzeria to look up the next night when we were in Trastevere. If you are in Rome, and you are thinking about whether Like A Local is a route you'd like to take, you absolutely must check out Francesca!!! Hands down one of the highlights of our two-week trip to Rome and Tuscany. Mille grazie, Francesca!!

Wonderful experience making mosaics!
Amazing session learning about the history of mosaics in Rome and the history of Studio Cassio and its connection to many famous restorations and origunal installations. Our instructor was extremely kind, helpful, fun, and enthusiastic. We had a one of a kind experience and would highly recommend it!
Ancient Mosaic-Making Workshop in Rome
Informative, relaxed and beautiful
We met Pier in a really nice square from where the tour started. He is a very open minded and sincere person with principles. That made the tour to a different experience compared to a "professional" tour as we got to know not only beautiful places in Rome but also the character behind the guide. I recommend this tour to everyone interested in a romantic atmosphere, as Rome by night turns into a less hectic and even more beautifil city than during daytime. Moreover I recommend it to everyone interested in an interesting chat with a very friendly italien guy! ;)

Don't eat breakfast before the tour
We loved it and told all our friends to do this tour when visiting Rome. Far too much food but our guide was lovely and made the tour really special with her local knowledge and cultural tips.

Francesca is a wonderful hostess
We were really late because the taxi driver couldn't find the address but Francesca and her boyfriend were very gracious. She prepared a lovely meal and explained everything. They made a genuine effort to connect with us through our mutual love of music. They drove us back to our hotel which was great as Rome taxi drivers don't seem to know the suburbs very well.

Rome Street Art Tour with a Local Art Historian
family pizza perfect
We, father and 14 year old daughter, booked the pizza cooking class & dinner with Francesca and her family the night before and we are so happy we did: it was one of the absolute highlights of our stay in Rome. Francesca was kind enough to arrange transportation (striking bus drivers and no taxi's available) to make the evening possible. We were welcomed by Francesca's lovely parents in their nice apartment and after a brief introduction we set to work: making pizza dough while sharing food stories and having some aperitivos was a great ice breaker and Pino was a very amusing and skilled teacher. We started to make pizza's and had great samples and learned some secret family recipes and ingredients. We set to the table and after about 10 shared pizza's, nice drinks, coffee & dessert we left very inspired. We felt very welcome and had a fabulous evening and have taken on to make pizza's with our own guests now and we always have great success! Thank you Francesca and cari saluti ai tuoi genitori - we hope to be back some day! Maud & Jan
Mamma che PIZZA! Cooking Class & Dinner with Francesca's Family in Rome
A peaceful place.
We did this on our last day in Rome and it was the perfect way to finish off our time in Rome. Pier shows you around and explains the history of it. It did not feel like a tour guide it was more like a friend showing us around. He even took us right to our train stop and was patient and calm. I really loved this tour and I highly recommend anyone who wants to do it. You see so much and the process of getting to frascati is so easy and coming back is easy too because Pier explains everything well. I loved it and it was a great way to finish by time in Rome.
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
What an education!
A really great tour. So much information we learned about the Coliseum, Forum, Palantine Hill, and Pantheon. It was worth it to skip the line. Crowds of people everywhere. It would have been exhausting to try and do this on our own. One word of advice, bring a water bottle. So many places to fill up and keep hydrated. I would highly recommend this tour!

Amazing tour! Absolutely do this!
What can I say? Please do this! Pier is a fantastic guide. It starts with the communication. He is highly responsive and makes it easy to get this tour planned. He is very knowledgeable and he shares his piece of Rome with you. When you listen to him and look at what he is pointing out, you will fall in love with this city even more. And he adjusted the tour right to our needs, in Trastevere even pointed out a fun place to get a special drink at, and ending on a magic space where the atmosphere is unbelievable. Pier is knowledagble, charming, funny, easy-to-talk to and we had great conversations while learning a ton of interesting things.

My husband and I booked this dinner for our second day in Rome. When we arrived at Francesca we are stunned from the food smell and the beautiful design. Francesca cooked really delicious food and she hosted us with her partner Pasqello. we had such a good evening with them. they opened for us two bottles of great white wine. We had a nice conversation and really loved to be with them. I really recommend this meal. it was an amazing experience.

High point of the trip
I went with my 13 and 11 year old kids to make a mosaic and had a blast. The staff were great; friendly, informative and well...amazing. They took the time to explain things to the kids and made it accessible and fun for them. Definitely a high point in our trip.
Family Mosaic-Making Workshop in Rome
Great tour, go for it!
We booked a last minute tour to Castelli Romani and Pier accommodated us in a friendly manner. The communication was smooth and he made us feel welcomed. He customed the tour according to our desire: more walking, time for photos. We spent more than 3hours but he did not mind at all. We saw beautiful villages from this area, an unique church, Pope's summer house, amazing views over the lakes, we had a coffee and delicious strwaberries. He was really nice showing us Frascati, his home town( best pizza place, the oldest city oven). He took time to have lunch with us even that was not part of the schedule. After the tour communication and recommendation with other nice places were much appreciated. Definitely recommended tour! Pier, many thanks!

Pierpaolo is a very nice guy that sure knows his way around the area. We made a roundtrip and Pier told many interesting stories. Ofourse we tasted the lovely frascati wine. On this trip you will see beautiful views and peaceful villages.
Day Trip to the Beautiful Castelli Romani
Hadrian's Villa and Villa D'Este: Complete Delight
Nicole did an amazing job in showing the highlights of both locations and enriching my understanding and appreciation with background information. I can't stress it enough. Anyone can go to the places and walk around, but it was the guide's context and knowledge that made the day the wonderful expereince it was. These places were built to be magical, transformative, and impressive; and she gave us a lense through which to view them that way. Book with Rome Your Way, and ask for Nicole. You will not be disappointed!
Tivoli Day Trip from Rome including Hadrian's Villa & Villa d'Este
We had a great day on this trip!
I was hesitant to book a day trip when we only had a a few days in Rome but I am very glad that we did! Hadrian's Villa was fascinating and the gardens and fountains at Villa d'Este were beautiful. They arranged for lunch at a restaurant in Tivoli and it was quite good. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Attention All History Buffs!!!!!
This was an awesome tour of Ancient Rome. Our guide was very enthusiastic and very engaging in all the sites we visiting and very informative. As a avid history buff this was a walking tour of my dreams from visiting the Colossuem, Pantheon, to see the site were Julius Ceasar was murdered I was in awe to be literally walking in history. My only advise is to be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring an extra battery for your camera.

Colosseum & Roman Forum Walking Tour with Pantheon & Piazza Navona
Fantastic tour. Our guide Felix was amazing and he took time to explain us everything in detail which was great. We were with our 3.5 year old daughter who was in a buggy however Felix was very calm and helped us manoeuvre some of the rather bumpy roads. His knowledge was excellent and there is no way we would have learnt so much in so less time had we not taken this tour. Thanks Felix!

Rome Evening Walking Tour - with great guide Nicole!
My mum & I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Nicole was brilliant, it was such a relaxed tour, to see Rome at night is so beautiful and some of the streets we walked down were so pretty. we would never have stumbled across them by ourselves. Nicole was full of information and answered any questions we fired her way. Would highly recommend this tour!
