Paint and sip class

paint and tipsy class rome vacation tips
From €39.00

Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)


Rome is the city of art, from the beauty of Bernini to the grandeur of Michelangelo.

And then of course there was Caravaggio. He of the revolutionary chiaroscuro technique, the rousting nature, the imbibing of the city’s local wines, and the works of rare genius.

That is what this fun class gives you: the chance to pick up a brush, quaff some of the local produce, free up your inhibitions, and produce a staggering work of heartbreaking genius (or your best effort).

Included in this class are:

  • A friendly painter, fluent in English, with a gift for instruction
  • All equipment required (easels, paints, canvasses, brushes)
  • Several glasses of local wine
  • A “salumi” (cold cuts and cheese) platter to snack on
  • A calming air-conditioned workspace in the center of the city

So let Rome inspire you, free up that creativity, and return with memories and a souvenir of a very special experience.

Four steps to making a masterpiece

  1. Meet at the Painting School
    Your instructor will welcome you and your fellow artists at our school, and break the ice with a glass of wine and snacks!
  2. Unleash your Inner Leonardo
    Choose your subject, learn the techniques, and put theory into practice as your paint and sip.
  3. Snack, sip & make a masterpiece
    Over the course of 3 fun-filled hours, you’ll create your own capolavoro, which will rival the works of Michelangelo – if he was a bit tipsy at the time.
  4. Take your art home with you
    Hang it above your fireplace, give it away as a gift, or float it down the Tiber.

Our tour philosophy

When we recommend specific tours, we use our considerable expertise about visiting Rome to select nothing but the absolute best tours and providers for you.

We do not work with companies such as Viator, GetYourGuide, or TripAdvisor, as they all charge a huge commission to independent operators, severely denting livelihoods in a sector that has already suffered significantly during the pandemic.

Instead, we go direct: all of the tour operators that we promote in our Tours section are personally known to and endorsed by us, based on our years working in the Rome travel business. By booking tours with these providers, more of the fee goes to the people who deserve it, and much less to the middlemen.

The small print: Rome Vacation Tips endorses our tour providers, but any transaction carried out between you the client and a tour operator is a relationship between you and the specific operator. Any issues or queries about a specific tour should be addressed directly to the operator with whom you booked using the contact details they have provided.

Now make sure you don’t miss out: plan your visit in advance:
