Full description
Meet your guide at the Church of Santa Maria Degli Angeli which has been re-designed by the famous Michelangelo. Head in direction of the Palazzo Massimo and discover the world’s largest collections of ancient art in one of the most underrated museums in Rome.

Then, see the “Boxer at Rest”, an impressive Hellenistic Greek sculpture, and hidden mosaics. Get exclusive access to one of the restoration areas and talk to the artisans working there.

Follow your guide to the hip neighborhood of Monti to visit the workshop of the Casio family, one of the main restorers of mosaics in Rome. Get insights into the world of mosaics and watch a trained master hand-cut pieces. Then, it's time to hand-cut a piece yourself and learn how these prestigious stones are pieced together.

Continue the tour of Rione de Monti which is also home to many artisanal stores and wine bars. At a local gelateria, meet the gelato artisans and sample their seasonal fruit sorbets and creamy selections. The tour concludes with a visit to a century-old wine bar for a glass of wine paired with a selection of local cheese, mozzarella di bufala, and salumi.
