Discover the art of mosaic visiting the Vatican Mosaic school and St. Peter's Basilica
The aim of this unique tour is to discover and celebrate the beauty of mosaics. Thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans, Rome is home of many mosaic masterpieces. Above all, in Rome it’s possible to visit a unique place: the Vatican Mosaic School.
This fascinating place, which is not included in the touristic itinerary, is literally a gem inside the Vatican. It was created to decorate the interior of the St. Peter’s Basilica but fortunately it is still operating today.
