Our mission

Lookals aims to involve a wide spectrum of users, from backpackers to families and from Erasmus students to travelling couples, giving travellers the chance to get in touch with people, history and traditions that might otherwise remain undiscovered.

Anyone who’s been to Italy, even just the once, will know that the best stories to regale your friends with back home often happened well off the beaten track and that a chinwag with the café barman or an aperitif in an alleyway bar might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. So why not head out on a tour of the bacari, traditional Venetian bars, or for a Vespa ride around the hills of Rome? Any way to experience the city, from the most traditional to the most unusual, is gladly accepted here at Lookals!

Lookals, which takes its name from the combination of “looking for” and “locals”, is a simple and intuitive meeting place.

Locals can build and customise their profile so as to present their proposals to the many travellers that choose Italy as their destination each year.
And the travellers themselves can easily browse all the offers from the comfort of their own home and handle the entire booking process online, from introduction to payment.
