This activity is for the people who don’t want to waste their valuable resources on souvenirs imported from abroad but want to create something with their own hands, on their Roman holiday. On this family-friendly activity in Rome, you will have fun while creating a memory and souvenirs that will last you a lifetime. The duration of this mosaics workshop is approximately 3.5 hours (with a walking tour of Trastevere). The group size is 8 people maximum. The workshop is given by a professional master mosaicist. All materials, tools, the lesson, and the walking tour are included in the price. At the end of the workshop, you will have made your unique souvenir, ready to take home.

I had not expected to have a real, hands-on experience. I created my own design, picked and cut marble, mixed the cement. I honestly expected to see something silly, with a prefabricated mosaic or almost. But it was nothing like that. I made it all from scratch.

We had so much fun making our mosaic. Nadia, the mosaicist, was a delight, and our guide was very knowledgeable and helpful.

To see our teenage kids work with their hands to create something beautiful, a souvenir that will last forever, was absolutely priceless.
Thank you!

A bit pricy, but worth it! We made our mosaics and this is really something unique, something you can’t buy.
