Mia, NYC, USA
As soon as you get to Rome, GO ON THIS EXPERIENCE! We booked this for the day we landed and BOY am I glad we did. Lauren taught us the art of apertivo by taking us to 3 very different places in the Trastevere area. This was also one of the only tours where all 3 drinks were included in the price, not just the first drink. The value we got out of it far exceeded our expectations! It was a small tour – just my husband, me, and Lauren – and we had such good conversations about apertivo, yes, but also life and who we are and where we come from. She was super helpful in steering us away from tourist traps, which was important to us for the rest of our trip. She gave us so many recommendations and I feel like we genuinely became friends because we stayed in touch throughout the majority of our trip through Italy. It was also super helpful that she was American, so we could easily chat about our shared experiences and her life in Italy. Just all around a super fun experience that we would have never felt comfortable doing ourselves, but once she taught us how to go about it, we went to an apertivo everyday thereafter. This was also my first Airbnb experience and will be hard to beat!
