~ WEEKEND ESCAPES ~
"Tell me ye stones and give me O glorious palaces answer. Speak O ye streets but one word. Genius, art thou alive?"
- Goethe, Erotica Romana
Sublime nature & classic harmony combine - the real Grand Tour is yours for the taking! Unspoiled by mass tourism, the countryside surrounding Rome boasts some of the most astonishing architectural gems & romantic landscapes of Ancient & Renaissance Italy; the very places that inspired artists & intellectuals from Lord Byron to Hawthorne to Cole.
"Hearing our travel tales & seeing pictures from our adventures, friends often ask us for recommendations for quick getaways in the countryside around Rome. That's why we decided to bring you with us for a weekend away to give you the true local experience that we enjoy when traveling in our native Italy. We do the driving, planning, booking & guiding in undiscovered villages, secret hot springs, abandoned castles, frescoed country villas & the best farm-to-table restaurants that we discovered while Giovanni worked as the right hand man to the President of Lazio."
