An off-the-beaten path tour that was great for our teenagers. Combined with seeing ancient Roman ruins and Renaissance paintings and sculptures during our week in Rome, they could see the trajectory of art over the centuries. And it gave them something to see that was very relevant to their lives today.

A big thank you to our guide, despite the rain she gave us a fantastic morning. An incredibly great and informative tour through the street art scene of Rome. If you love art, you shouldn't miss this tour.


Excellent for those who love Street Art and want to deepen their knowledge of the Ostiense district at the same time
