Why take this tour?

Join local historians as we uncover the history of Rome and its most famous residents! These immersive audio guides are the perfect walks for any historical trip to Rome.

Wander around the Roman Forum to see some brilliant basilicas, towering temples and ancient arches. Walk in the footsteps of emperors as we travel back around 2000 years to the height of the Roman Empire. 

Enjoy an unmissable taste of Testaccio in this vibrant food tour of Rome. Wander around this 2000-year-old structure and imagine where gladiators once fought, crowds cheered and Emperors decided the fate of fighters. 

Learn about the lifespan of the Roman Empire, from its origins in the 8th century B.C. to its rise as a republic, its transformation during the reign of Julius Caesar and Augustus, its expansion across Europe as an Empire, and finally to the spread of Christianity and the Empire’s eventual fall.

About operator:

Too many people visit places without discovering anything about them. And we can’t let that happen.


We believe that the true essence of travelling lies in the joy of discovering the authentic face of cities, neighbourhood and cultural sites, and unlocking the many tales they hold.


With that spirit in our hearts, we started out in search of these stories hidden in the nooks and corners of Paris, London, Cambridge and Oxford's most iconic spots. We then dived into each place’s culture, history, and traditions by collaborating with historians, famous architects, photographers, street artists, and many more. What we ended up finding was a treasure trove of stories that we have meticulously tied together just for you!


But how to deliver this information? We didn’t want to create another Wikipedia, with people looking at their phones instead of the sites. And let’s face it, audioguides and headsets belong to the 20th century.. This is why we’ve created our own storytelling format. Podcast-style tours, enriched with photos and videos, that keep you wanting more.


Our goal is to create a form of travel that will make you truly discover the places you visit.
