Rome Street Art Tours

When in Rome, you might not want to just see the sights like everyone else — you might want to find the hidden gems no one outside of the city knows about. And that’s where I come in. 

Discover Rome Street Art and More Hidden Gems in Rome

Since 2011, I’ve been writing about the Rome you won’t find in the guidebooks. Now I want to do more, become your Rome local guide, and show you the real city, from a local’s perspective, through private walking tours in Rome focused on street art, food, off-the-beaten-path spots, and everything urban.

As you might have noticed reading my Rome Urban Travel Blog, I can get easily bored of the routine. Therefore, my favorite tours are those tailor-made to your interests and passions.

My husband and I had a wonderful day exploring street art in Rome with Giulia. We both know the city very well, as we lived there on an off for years and used to work there as tour guides ourselves, but this was a completely different kind of tour from any others that we've taken or given in Rome. Giulia helped us see our favourite city in the world through new eyes and appreciate it even more from a different perspective.

Dear Giulia,Thank you very much for such a beautiful and special tour! We got to know a new and unknown side of Rome. The tour was full of exciting street art, and you introduced so well Garbatella and Tor Marancia!We will certainly recommend your tour to friends travelling to Rome.Judith and Gilead
My friend and I were very lucky to join Giulia on a tour of MAAM just outside of Rome. MAAM is a very unique place that wouldn’t have been the same adventure without Giulia's guidance and expertise. Communication surrounding the tour & the booking was easy and clear. Giulia is a wonderful guide, she is passionate and knowledge about the history of street art and graffiti culture world wide as a whole. She also gave insight about the artists and techniques they use. She was able to answer all of our questions and offered helpful tips for Rome. Our afternoon trip out to MAAM was something I will never forget! Thanks Giulia! I will be booking other tours with her and or ordering personal itineraries for other European cities on my upcoming city trips!

I had a lovely as well as an enjoyable 4-hour private tour with Giulia. I saw so many street art pieces and heard many stories about them and about the various neighborhoods that we walked through. I loved every minute of this special tour. We had a lovely morning coffee and muffin before starting our tour and a vegan lunch (one of the best lunches that I have ever eaten). Above all, Giulia was such a lovely lady. I highly recommend this tour. Thank you Giulia!

I reached out to Giulia as I had a day and was interested in a customised tour focusing on Street Art in abandoned buildings further afield. Giulia put together a fantastic itinerary, was extremely reactive at all times, and understood precisely what I wanted, going above and beyond. Spent a great day with her and am already planning next trips with her support. This is well beyond a 5-star experience!

Explore Rome with a local: me. 

I’m a writer who is specialised in street art and graffiti. Since 2011, I have run the independent street art blog BLocal, which has been the media partner of important street art festivals around Europe. I create content for creative enterprises and museums, and my writing was published in street art catalogs and art publications.

I’ve been following Rome’s graffiti and street art scene ever since I was a child in the 1990s. Over the past decade, my interest has only grown as my career has evolved around urban art. From artist manager to gallery assistant, press office to researcher; most recently working as the Communication and Content Manager of Amsterdam’s STRAAT museum, this field has been an integral part of my life.

Showing you the city through my eyes is what I’m most passionate about.
