Rome is a city ripe for exploration, and there are as many ways to see the city as there are attractions–from private car to historic tram, by Vespa, bicycle, or even Segway.
Portrait Roma guests have yet another option: climbing aboard the hotel's luxury electric golf cart for a private tour chauffeured by one of the hotel's personal butlers.
Proudly familiar with the city, the butler navigates the golf cart through Rome’s narrow alleys and secret streets that will catch even the savviest of travelers by surprise, sharing local lore and pointing out curiosities usually left unnoticed.
Discover a secret Rome treasured by locals, and not likely to be found in any guidebook.
From a neighborhood devoted to street art to the best mobile food vendors in town, the golf cart allows for easy hop on, hop off visiting.
Join locals at a popular pizza stop near the Vatican, snack on Roman-style fried delicacies in the Campo dei Fiori neighborhood, and sample handmade bonbons at a historic chocolate shop near the Pantheon.
Browse and buy artisan-made handicrafts at a tucked-away local shop, then end the tour with your guide's pick of the best panoramic view from the hills. Tours are customized to guests’ individual tastes, however, the mission never veers off course–the discovery of a secret Rome treasured by locals, and not likely to be found in any guidebook.
