Some AMAZING Client Reviews...

What a great trip we had with Lauren and DavveroItally! From our first contact to the last arrivederci hug, every detail of our meals and drinks were exactly what we wanted. We met great restaurateurs and bartenders, who shared their love of their craft, and gave us an intimate view of Italian hospitality. Lauren guided us through a personal tour, and also through much of our trip planning, even in other cities. She was available to assist us in many ways, and is a delightful companion. We remain very grateful for her presence and professional support.

I had the pleasure of having a few tours with Lauren and she was fantastic. Her knowledge of the city, the cuisine, the history and the people was nothing short of impeccable. Lauren's personal touch made it feel me feel like I was touring Italy with a friend. I highly recommend her services. Enjoy!

Lauren. Is. Awesome. We had the best time with her and she curated our itinerary to our interests perfectly. She showed us some of the best food spots, introduced us to incredible experiences like a Rooftop Opera Dinner, had recommendations on restaurants, neighborhoods, bars and experiences. She's made friends with everyone in Rome so she gets special treatment everywhere. It was like traveling with our own celebrity. She even had people to give recommendations for other cities, like Bologna. Highly recommend!

Ed and I had the best time in Italy. We spent the longest time in Rome and had hired Lauren , And she did not disappoint. The food, The cocktails ,The Apertivo tour. The restaurants. The street foods,The fun time with Lauren. We enjoyed ourselves immensely! We would hire Lauren again..

The best thing I did before I travelled to Rome with my husband and my 83 year old mom was to reach out to Lauren. Lauren was able to devise an itinerary that included something for everybody! Photography exhibits, food tastings, shopping and more. We spent part of our time in Rome accompanied by Lauren and enjoyed getting to know her. And part of the time we followed her recommendations for museums, restaurants and markets. We can't return soon enough!

When I asked my travel writer friend what my teen daughter and I should to do in Rome, she immediately suggested booking a tour with Davvero Italy. Lauren thoughtfully created a truly customized itinerary and made us feel like we were being hosted by an in-the-know local family member. Her genuine care, great love of Italy and expert level of communication (before, during and even after our outing) culminated in one of the best experiences of our entire trip to Europe!

Searching for a fabulous food tour? Look no further, book now! Lauren custom designed a food market tour for our family. We ate our way through a neighborhood market, had a hilarious side escapade to a cemetery (yes, really) and learned a lot about what it’s like living in Rome for this lovely Italian American.

Another evening we did a marvelous appetizer and apertivo tour while wandering through historic Rome. When we couldn’t eat another bite she asked us, “Now, where are you going for dinner?”

My first time in Rome was magical!  Lauren curated a custom tour for our group which included the perfect mix of cultural sites, local culture, food and cocktails.  I felt that we weren't tourists but really immersed in the life of Rome thanks to Lauren's local knowledge.  The highlight was aperitivo overlooking the Colosseum in the moonlight AND the speakeasy hidden in the ancient streets we visited.  Thanks for making our experience stress-free and memorable!

Lauren made our experience in Rome so very special! She gave us a behind the scenes tour of the city and made us feel like locals. She customized an itinerary based on all our travel goals (food tour!! yes, please!). We'll never forget our time in Rome thanks in large part to Lauren's attention to detail and suggestions on what to see. Thank you Lauren!!!

My friends (2 friends and husband) and I loved our Spritz time with Lauren! Lauren is lovely, super friendly, knowledgeable, and loves to share her passion for Rome's culture! We booked the tour with Lauren on our very first day in Rome (and first time in Rome) which we were all thankful for because we learned all about Aperitivo! At the end of our trip in Rome, I think, combined we all had over 40 Aperol Spritz all thanks to Lauren! Aperitivo became the theme of every day for us! I highly recommend Lauren's tour to everyone but, especially for anyone who is visiting Rome for the first time, you will learn so much from Lauren. Lastly, Lauren went above and beyond and offered us so many local food recommendations and kept in touch with us throughout our trip. Her recommendations were all on point! :-)

My wife and I were in Rome for only 4 days. It was nice to have Lauren, an American in Italy, recommend and arrange authentic experiences for us. We didn't want to be a part of the tour groups migrating through the streets of Rome, instead we were able to enjoy Rome like a local in various neighborhood establishments. With our short stay, everyday was special full of unique and culinary experiences we will cherish.
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!

This tour was great! Lauren is an excellent host and gave our tour group a perfect introduction to the Italian aperitivo. Lauren brings her personal experiences from living in Rome and has an awesome sense of humor. She is incredibly helpful with recommendations for restaurants and sites around Rome! She went way above and beyond the scope of the aperitivo tour and really cares about everybody’s trips and itineraries the entire time they’re in Rome. The tour is a great start to a night out, and a great start for a trip to Rome!

Lauren is absolutely amazing!! This was such a fun experience. My wife and I absolutely LOVE aperitivo so getting to do it with Lauren was a blast! A transplanted New Yorker in Rome, it was easy to build rapport and obviously easy to speak English. But she also speaks Italian, making it easy to go from place to place. She helped us navigate a gluten allergy with the food offerings and we’re already friends for life! We met up again the next day just for fun...Lauren is just that awesome!! Highly recommend you do this tour on your time in Rome!
Chad, NYC, USA
Not only did Lauren hook us up with this excellent insider experience, she also helped us shape our agenda for the rest of our trip! We've been eating well on her recommendations for days since hanging out with her.
Bret, NY, USA
This was a fabulous afternoon spent tasting, talking and learning about some great wines. Lauren is warm and friendly, and introduced us to spots we never would have found on our own. The wine tasting was really informative and super local. In a city that can seem overrun with tourists, Lauren showed us her favorite spots like a local. Oh, and the gelato!!!!!!
Christina, Illinois, USA
Where do I begin with Lauren?! She was awesome, she made my experience with the spritz event informative and fun but she also was the biggest help with my trip to Rome overall..she messaged me in advance for details on when I’d be in town and gave me so many great ideas and recommendations on where to go to fully take in Rome! I would have missed out on the authentic side of Rome had I not booked her spritz event. She even made me an itinerary for my last day here to make sure I got to see everything worth while and was always a message away! Can’t wait to come back to Rome in the future and I’ll be keeping in touch with this gem, Lauren :D

Lauren was lovely... she took us to places, we wouldn’t have known about.. totally immersed in the local appertivo tradition.. the tour was not only fun but educational... what’s more, Lauren gave us great recommendations for places to visit, eat and drink... the rest of my stay in Italy was completely designed by her... she almost made my itinary for the rest of the trip... which is incredibly helpful for a solo traveller, especially if you haven’t been to the place before... would definitely recommend this tour, not just from the tour point of view , but the fact that it ll make your whole vacation :)
