Travel to Orvieto for a cooking class and the chance to explore this vibrant hill town. Delve into unexpected Rome with a special visit to Studio Cassio, which has restored ancient mosaics for over 100 years. In addition, travel to the ancient port of Ostia to view its impressive shrines and temples, all remarkably well-preserved. A unique program of planned excursions and free time, plus centrally-located accommodations for a seven-night stay, gives you the opportunity to discover the Eternal City’s treasure trove of must-see sights at a relaxed pace.
