What you'll do

We’ll be far from the tourist routes in the east side of Rome. We’ll start visiting by some boutiques of local artisans such as the leather craftsman, the stained glass artist, the frame maker in Centocelle and so on; all locals that always work and live in this neighborhood. After that, we will have an aperitivo in one of my favorite wine bar, where we can get to know each other while I tell you about the traditional and local habits of Romans, chatting as friends . You will get to know the real culture of Rome, seeing the real and authentic day to day life of locals. I’ll advise you on what is worth to do, and if you're tired of the hustle and bustle of the city centre, I can give you many recommendations of the hidden and truly spots that meet more yours fancies!
Other things to note
We will walk in the Centocelle district a lot during the experience. Wear a comfortable pair of shoes. The tour leader could be Leonardo or Giovanni

I'm a software engineer based in Rome. I'm an enterprising person, I traveled a lot as a solo traveler, before coming back to my birthplace, that I've started to love in an infectious way, thanks to its genuineness and traditional habits. I’d love to spend time with you, giving tips about my city and let you be knowledge about my neighborhood;
Giovanni, an Italian-swedish guy that's actually my collaborator, will do the same.

Leonardo was amazing! Shared the history of Centocelle neighbourhood in a unique and special way, as a truly local. Actually, it was kind of a private tour as I was the only guest. Besides the tour, Leonardo provided lots of tips of what to do while staying in Rome. I highly recommend you to take this tour in the beginning of your trip so you have plenty of time to enjoy everything he has to share with you.

Our friends highly recommended us to take this tour and we now know why. Leonardo has such authentic insight of the neighborhood thanks to his numerous personal connections. It was such a unique experience and we are grateful he was able to squeeze us in. The places we visited and the artisans we met were true local mom and pop shops passionate about their craft. This tour is an awesome break from the usual typical tours of city center Rome. Very much worth it!

Impressed by his passion to the tour. I participated the tour with my husband, fortunately our turn was private. He organized the tour for us and cared us a lot. The price of the tour was reasonable, but he gave the experience much more than we expected and made us so impressed. We could meet wonderful local people and experience traditional food because of him. Thank you very much Leonardo, hope to see you again.

Our experience with Leonardo was very nice and interesting. Great chance to see the real life of Romans. Children were happy to get small presents from the leather craftsman. Ice-cream was very nice as well. As we were planning to visit Pisa and Firenze Leonardo helped us with advises what to do and see over there.
