Go outside the crowd and enjoy Rome

This tour allows you to discover two amazing areas -full of history, art and architecture - where usually tourists don't go.
We will visit a wonderful area built in the Twenties and another cozy area - the oldest of Rome - where the history was born.

I'm leading you into a world who seems unreal and you'll learn many things about Rome and its history.


We're visiting first the Coppedé area: built during the Twenties, you'll be very surprised to see something like that in Rome. Houses plenty of details looking like fantasy buildings.

Then we're moving to Monti area: close to Colosseum, we visit the ancient area of Suburra, considered during the Roman Empire as the worst part of the city so that Caesar ordered to build a division wall from there! Now it's a cozy area full of unconventional shops: curiosities, vintage shops, local artisans shops!

A Recent Review of this tour

Valentina gave us such an interesting tour of areas in Rome that we had not seen, despite our previous visits to the city. She was extremely knowledgeable and made it such a wonderful experience. Valentina even recommended a restaurant in an area that we toured and it was fantastic. We highly recommend Tours By Locals - the personal touch makes the tour even more enjoyable; and we highly recommend Valentina.
