Great Tour
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the colosseum and surrounding area. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very attentive to the group needs. She took her time and made sure that there were opportunities for pictures and for breaks.

Overall an excellent experience.

Incredible Experience in Rome
My husband and I visited Studio Cassio during our first day in Rome and it was incredible! We had a private lesson with Uliana. She was an excellent teacher- very patient and accommodating. She explained the art of mosaic to us and showed us the tools that are used. We did ancient mosaics using black and white marble (although I had red marble in mine- it's pretty but much harder to cut). I did a dragon like animal mosaic and my hubby did a wave design. She let us know that some of the black and white marble may be from ancient sites like Pompeii or the Vatican, since the studio has done restorations there. We worked on our pieces for several hours and at the end of our time we had a wonderful piece of artwork for each of us to take home. This was one of our most favorite memories from all our travels in Italy in July and the mosaics are keepsakes that we will always treasure. Thank you Uliana for such a great experience! We will visit again if we have the chance to return to Rome!

Great Relaxing and Interesting Class
We were very lucky to get into this class. It was only the two of us. Our instructor started the class with the history of mosaic making as well as background information about mosaics, colors, and their mosaic company. She demonstrated how mosaics were made, and the process that we were going to follow to create our own mosaics. This was a great class that allowed us to either follow a pattern or create our own pattern. We spent quite a while working and having Juliana guide and critique us as we progressed through our project. At the end of the class, she allowed it to set before wrapping it so we could continue our sight seeing for the day. We would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in getting hands-on learning about mosaics. You do not have to be an artist to take this class as one of us has an art background while the other one has very little artistic ability.

Wonderful!!!
My husband John and I took this course and loved every minute of it. We each made a small mosaic--- it is a lot harder than it looks. Juliana was our very fine teacher and explained about how mosaics are made, cared for, the history of them and more. It is a dying art form and yet mosaics seem to live on forever as you see them in ancient locales all over Rome as well as wherever the Roman Empire stretched out to. And what great artists, both ancient and current day! We feel it was a highlight of our week and strongly recommend this class! The Via Urbana is a nice little street with a lot of shops and interesting looking activities/ artists , restaurants etc. Thank you so much Juliana! We will always remember this :)

Superb
The mosaic making class was a highlight of our trip. It gave us a valuable perspective on the work that went into the beautiful art all around us. The educational piece in the beginning was informative without being too long or dull and then we got started making mosaics of our own. I was afraid we would run out of time but we were never rushed or made to feel we were taking too long. Our teacher was very patient. My husband and I made birds and our daughter made a geometric design. Since the stones are square she was wiser than we were but I love all of our mosaics and we are bringing home these unique souvenirs as perfect mementos of our trip.

Mosaics class
I took a mosaics class from Studio Cassio in Rome and loved it. It was a small class- four students and two instructors, so there was plenty of help. We started with a brief into the history of mosaics and restoration, then jumped into our projects. I enjoyed it enough that I will be purchasing supplies and trying some projects on my own. Mosaics are harder than they look, but it was worth it. I think my husband and two college- age kids would have enjoyed it as well. I don’t think I would recommend the class for kids younger than 10-12, as it requires using tweezers to place and move tiles and it’s easy to bump things and need to start over.

Best Experience Ever!
My daughter and I couldn’t be happier with our experience with this studio. Both mosaicists were extremely knowledgeable and helpful in educating us about the history of mosaics and their construction. More than that, both were wonderfully warm, caring, engaging people who clearly love what they do. We took the 2 hour class but had such a good time we’ll plan to take their 4 day class the next time we’re in Rome. As a side note, they made an exception for my daughter, who is 6, as their classes are usually for older children. Both artists were so patient with her that she’s hooked on making mosaics!

Highly recommend
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Trip was well organized. We were picked up by a van from our hotel lobby. Tour coordinator was waiting at Termini for us. She gave train tickets to Venice and back , gondola tickets and gave very good instructions and maps for self guided tour of Venice. She also assisted in boarding train in Termini. There was about 7 hours time in Venice which gave ample time to see st Mark's basilica, the square, Rialto bridge and also take the gondola ride with some spare time for shopping. I highly recommend this tour if you only have 1 day to see Venice.

Mosaic class
I took a mosaic class, which I loved. The folks at Studio Cassio are really nice & super-smart re mosaics, and they are interested in teaching. I had a one-on-one class for three hours for a very reasonable rate, with a lot of attention. They specialize in ancient Roman mosaic; and I made a small mosaic with the help of the delightful and lovely teacher. It was fun spending time with these folks; and I learned a lot. After spending my days, being a tourist, looking at all the mosaics in churches in Rome, how cool to have the chance craft my own under the tutelage of masters!

Informative and Fun - Honest Review
Please forgive me but after 2 weeks travelling all around Italy and various guides - I cannot remember the name of the woman who was our guide but she was great! We were a small group of 5 which was ideal as the inside of the museums was crowded so our experience was not hindered by also being a part of a massive group.

She was super informative and was relatable in her delivery. Although English is not her first language, there was no barrier of difficulty in what she was saying or trying to convey.

I would use them again and can’t thank our guide enough.

Hadrian's Villa and Villa D'Este: Complete Delight
Nicole did an amazing job in showing the highlights of both locations and enriching my understanding and appreciation with background information. I can't stress it enough. Anyone can go to the places and walk around, but it was the guide's context and knowledge that made the day the wonderful expereince it was. These places were built to be magical, transformative, and impressive; and she gave us a lense through which to view them that way. Book with Rome Your Way, and ask for Nicole. You will not be disappointed!

Humble masters.
I took the Ancient Mosaics course, and it was truly a highlight of my trip to Rome. This studio and its artists has itself a rich history; they are masters of the art form but so humble about it.

While I'm not talented, I like to be creative, and so this course was perfect. I learned a great deal about the history, obtained the basic skills to take back home, and have a new found appreciation for mosaics.

I would highly recommend this studio and their courses!

ten out of ten experience
The workshop setting, the historical connection with Rome of Studio Cassio told as an introduction and being instructed clearly and thoughtfully made this, my first mosaic class, exciting and memorable. I thoroughly recommend this activity for any visit to Rome for a better understanding of the what is around you. I couldn't have wished for a better provider than Studio Cassio. They exceeded my expectations on every level

The guide Giovanna was knowledgeable...
The guide Giovanna was knowledgeable and obviously proud of her Italian heritage... with good reason. The museum and Sistine Chapel are astounding. I think one attribute that really helped with the 3 hour tour was her sense of humour. It is quite irritating making your way through crowds of people all wanting to keep up with their tour guide. She kept us together, holding her umbrella high all the while explaining the tapestries and ancient art.

Attention All History Buffs!!!!!
This was an awesome tour of Ancient Rome. Our guide was very enthusiastic and very engaging in all the sites we visiting and very informative. As a avid history buff this was a walking tour of my dreams from visiting the Colossuem, Pantheon, to see the site were Julius Ceasar was murdered I was in awe to be literally walking in history. My only advise is to be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring an extra battery for your camera.

Book this now! Best money you will spend!
I live in America and I booked this tour off an app--on a whim. I honestly was not sure what to expect. Carlo contacted me a few days before hand and I met him at his studio. We reviewed some locations and the kinds of pictures I was looking for. Then we met the next day. He obviously knows the area very well and knew exactly where to go to get the kind of a asthetic I wanted. I am very happy with the results!

Colosseum & Roman Forum Walking Tour with Pantheon & Piazza Navona
Fantastic tour. Our guide Felix was amazing and he took time to explain us everything in detail which was great. We were with our 3.5 year old daughter who was in a buggy however Felix was very calm and helped us manoeuvre some of the rather bumpy roads. His knowledge was excellent and there is no way we would have learnt so much in so less time had we not taken this tour. Thanks Felix!

Even in the rain it was spectacular!
The guide was so knowledgeable and friendly and moved at a pace that worked for everyone. We were always in the best spots to see the sight and then a better spot to photograph the sights. Who could ask for more. The skip the lines thing is real. Without this service it would have meant at least a 30-60 minute wait to get in and then try to follow an audio tour.

What an education!
A really great tour. So much information we learned about the Coliseum, Forum, Palantine Hill, and Pantheon. It was worth it to skip the line. Crowds of people everywhere. It would have been exhausting to try and do this on our own. One word of advice, bring a water bottle. So many places to fill up and keep hydrated. I would highly recommend this tour!
