What you'll do

Did you know that just outside of Rome’s bustling city center, you can find one of the trendiest quarters in the city? Let me introduce you to Pigneto, a hub of art and creativity with cool street art and plenty of alternative vibes - this is genuinely the real side of Rome!

Come with me and let’s explore the colourful streets of the district. Pigneto is one of my favourite places in town, and every corner inspires me. Let’s admire the work of award-winning, emerging artist Francesco Persichella, who is seriously shaking Rome’s graffiti scene. Feel free to share what you think about the artworks we see throughout the tour; I would love to share my knowledge in art history and photography tips.

Let’s start to get to know each other, and then let’s go street art hunting. We’ll also visit the Nero Gallery to see its impressive collection of contemporary art. I’ll also take you to a couple of my favourite alternative spots like a former cinema and a trendy artsy shop.

My goal is that after this experience you can proudly say that you discovered a part of Rome you had no idea it was so interesting.

Ciao! I’m Sara and together with Razvan, we co-host this experience. While Razvan takes care of the planning and answering your questions, I’ll be showing you the colors of one of my favorite districts, Pigneto.

Let me describe myself and my interests in a few words. For sure I'm above all curious, of people, cultures, music, arts, cuisine... Everything! And thanks to a degree in History of Art and Cinema, I’m here to give you as much information as I can about Rome, and its districts. I’m also a photographer and I can share with you some of my favorite photo stops here in Rome.

If you’re as curious as I am, then let’s go and explore a side of Rome that many locals don’t know about, the Pigneto district! Feel free to ask as many questions as you want, I love to share my knowledge with new friends.

Ich hab diese Tour gebucht, um "off the beaten track" mal etwas Neues in meiner Lieblingsstadt zu erkunden - und kann es jedem von Herzen empfehlen. Sara hat mir diese Ecke von Rom wirklich nahe gebracht. Neben die vielen wunderbaren Streetart Werken und den dazugehörigen Geschichten, hat sie mir auch viel über die Geschichte von Pigneto vermittelt. Ihr Wissen über Street Art, Pigneto und Rom generell macht die Tour zu einer echten Freude. Sie beantwortet jede Frage und geht noch fix eine Umweg, um noch etwas zu zeigen, was die Teilnehmer interessieren könnte. Darüber hinaus hat sie auch für andere Ecken Roms viele Tips parat. Die Tour kann ich wirklich sehr empfehlen.
