Rome is Italy's treasure, rich with masterpieces from more than two thousand years of history. We will visit all the famous squares, throw a coin into the Fountain of Trevi, walk with a gelato in hand, and sit in front of the Pantheon at twilight and witness the shades of pink turn to gold and copper before nightfall. On Monday, the Colosseum will be our highlight.

During these two days we will learn about the Etruscans, a powerful, wealthy, and refined civilization of ancient Italy that inhabited the area corresponding roughly to Tuscany, western Umbria, and northern Lazio. We will visit the Etruscans' Necropolis, museums, tiny mountaintop villages, and secret gardens adorned with 16th century sculptures. We will eat with dear friends and enjoy an evening by the sea with live music by Vincenzo and Luca!
