    Derrick was an excellent host, warm and interesting. The artisans we visited were talented, inspiring and genuinely welcoming. We loved seeing their work spaces and watching things happen…we even had some hands on activities to try ourselves! Great fun, and really nice to see a part of the city with a reputation for creativity and art.

    We were looking for something different to do in Rome beyond the usual tourist spots.Through this tour we explored local boutiques in Monteverde, getting an insight into Rome’s artisan tradition. It was a genuinely unique experience. Would recommend to those who have already checked off the Colosseum, the Forum and similar attractions and want to discover the real Rome.
