Architectural Itineraries in Italy

about studio rome


These 3-hour thematic workshops unveil Rome’s architecture as few have experienced it before. For a richer learning experience we bring together small groups of like-minded participants (no more than six people total) to explore the urban backstreets, archaeological treasures, grand palaces and churches, and contemporary hot-spots of Rome. Workshops are led by top experts in architectural history, urban planning, landscape and other relevant fields. 

How does it work? 

  • Reserve a spot on one or more of our scheduled workshops. (We take bookings months in advance but occasionally have last minute availability). 
  • Following our clear instructions to reach the meeting place, you will join the assigned leader and the rest of the group. No flags or signs; we are subtle and sophisticated but easy to find. 
  • For the next three hours you will explore the city, admiring and discussing its architectural riches, occasionally stopping for a coffee or a snack, and stepping into a workshop or a cloister or descending to visit underground ruins. 

Our alumni have said that the time flies but they continue to process the unforgettable experience for years to come.

Studio Rome’s vision is of magnificent urban experiences — rich, exciting and informative.  We thrive on designing outside-the-box itineraries, taking our clients to the most fascinating, seldom-visited places, meeting the most interesting people, getting involved in the city’s rich architectural heritage.

Sip your cappuccino at the cafe with the locals or on a lush roof terrace overlooking the cupolas and rooftops of Rome. Zip past palazzi and paparazzi on a vespa, cycle in silence along the Tiber’s banks or simply stroll amongst the artisans in the back alleys of the Renaissance city. Visit the studios of the artists and designers who are laying the eternal city’s latest layers, or learn from the experts preserving and restoring the previous ones. And then share a table with them and other local and international players at the best undiscovered trattoria. 

If you don’t mind getting some dirt under your fingernails, follow us down into the buried city to uncover the centuries-old buildings, mosaics, frescoes---and occasionally bones. Or climb to the highest points to view snow-covered mountains beyond the city’s walls. 

The best invitations, the best seats, the best tables, the best advice. Studio Rome’s creative team is thrilled to design an itinerary which will stay with you for life. Give us a call or drop us an email so we can start brainstorming together to make your trip to Rome absolutely unforgettable.

If you are planning a trip — or already live in Rome and are interested in joining us — fill out our contact form or send us an email with basic information about your party, your dates in Rome, and your interests. We will start the conversation with a sample itinerary, no strings attached.  
If you share our passion for Rome, join our mailing list and we’ll keep you in the loop with our quarterly newsletter and occasional updates from the eternal city.

You made us feel not like tourists but rather like guests of sophisticated insiders. The whole thing exceeded our greatest expectations.

I truly want to thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon.  You showed us so many wonderful things and explained them in such an interesting way.
