Every visitor of the Eternal City spends a lot of time walking in the center of Rome, imagine what you could do with the right advice at the right moment. We're specialized in providing a series of services to improve your experience in the "walkable" part of the city: the "Centro Storico". As native Romans, we are strongly convinced that you can deeply enjoy Roman life by just going from place to place within the center by foot; after meeting us, knowing what your curiosities are about the City, we are capable to direct you where a native Roman would go find what you want. This is a new kind of exploring and we're proud of it!
From breakfast to lunch, from aperitivo to dinner, from cocktail bars to clubs, we can provide tailored support.
We're an organization composed of young native Romans that want to change the connection between visitors (short and long-term ones) and locals, which is not always rosy. We don't agree with the idea of tourism that is shared among the majority of the Roman community, which is negative from our own point of view. We don't agree with the idea of giving advice to visitors with the only purpose of earning economically out of it as much as possible; Walkable Rome wants, first, to give a series of curated services to people who request them, then, in case of appreciation by our customers, be rewarded.
Our Advice is not based on internet-driven rates but on our own life experience. We're strongly convinced that too many places have a too high rate on their internet Pages, meaning that not necessarily a restaurant with 5 stars deserves them and another with 3 does not. We don't give that much credit to those numbers, simply because they normalize the quality of food and drinks, and because, the majority of the times, people go to places from which they expect something.
We want to come back to the spontaneity of being surprised by a place, and this is achievable by the means of receiving advice from a local.
It's just a matter of trust, which is what we want to rebuild between visitors and locals.
Among our recommendations, there are different ranges of expense for restaurants and bars. You can be sure that their quality (meaning by that all the details that make a restaurant or a bar great) is proportional to their type of expense. For different ranges, there will be a different kind of service, nevertheless the quality of food remains high.
If you have any Italian friends, then you know what "picky" means when it comes to decide where to eat or drink!
