monastery 1

You will be arriving at Rome airport  and met by your driver who will be accompaning you for the all journey in Italy with his very confortable van.
Farfa is about  1 hrs ride from the airport and this is where we will be heading after leaving the airport.
We are driving  north east and soon entering one of the greenest region of Italy called Sabina. Your roman history studies might remind you of something which from then on has been recalled as: The Rape of the Sabine women. This is in fact the region where these women were kidnapped by the first comunity of shepards leaving in this area which today we call Rome and was at  the origin of the great roman ancestry.
This is a region of Italy also known for its great olive oil production, one of the best in Italy. On our way to Farfa we will have a chance to see one the the oldest olive tree in the world more then 2.000 years old known as: the OLIVONE
The checking in in the Monastery is going to be very unformal and fast and soon you can relaxe in our rooms from the long transatlantic flight.

Rome is less then an hour and this is where we going tonight for a nice introduction to the city with a Rome by night tour with your driver. Back to Farfa to enjoy your first relaxing night in a monastery.



We wake up in the little village of Farfa and soon we reach the only bar existing to join the locals for breakfast.
Our driver is waiting for us to bring us back to Rome and giving us an orientation tour of the city.
All the main sites will be easily reached becouse our van is maximun size allowed to drive in the city center, different from any other vehicle with more then 9 seats which no longer are allowed in to the city center for sightseeing tour, for this reason no walking is requested but confortable drop off just by the monuments you'll be visiting.

The afternoon is completely dedicated to the Vatican, and particulary  the VATICAN MUSEUM ,The SISTINE CHAPEL and S.PETER'S BASILICA.

For this very special visit we have hired a private guide and reserved special tickets which will avoid a very long queue with otherwise forms every day since more then 6 milions of tourists are visiting this museum every year.

Time to say good bye to our local guide and we start our way back to our peaceful monastery.

We are leaving today the medieval village of Farfa and our beatiful and peaceful Monastery.

Our first stop is a top notch. An incredible visit to the CIVITA DI BAGNOREGIO  the city that is dying as a consequence of its position atop a plateau of friable volcanic tuff overlooking the Tiber river valley.
The second stop of the day won't be less in term of interest and beauty the medieval town of ORVIETO.

Orvieto origins go back to the Etruscan civilization: the first Etruscan settlements, going back to the 9th Century B.C.
Infact, were found inside the tufaceous caves in the bedrock upon which today rises the city.
Assisi it's a little more then an hour driving where will be arriving late afternoon.
In the town of San Francis, sleeping in a monastery has indeed a different meaning.

Excursion to Lugano

Lugano, n the holiday region of Ticino, is the town of parks and flowers, villas and sacred buildings. With Mediterranean flair, Lugano offers all the advantages of a world-class city, combined with the cachet of a small town.
It lies in a bay on the northern side of the wonderful Lake Lugano, surrounded by numerous mountains offering splendid viewpoints.
Lugano boasts a pedestrian-only downtown core, filled with piazzas and cafes, and a beautiful palm-tree lined lakefront. It's great for shopping, people-watching, swimming in the lake and short excursions to nearby sights.

It's time to discover the incredible city of VENICE. Sited on a group of 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges, it is located in the marshy Venetian Lagoon which stretches along the shoreline, between the mouths of the Po and the Piave Rivers. Venice is renowned for the beauty of its setting, its architecture, and its artwork. The city in its entirety is listed as a World Heritage Site, along with its lagoon. 

In the afternoon visit to the islands. Murano, known for its glassmaking, Glass Museum, and several historic churches. Burano, an island of fishermen, lacemakers, and colorfully painted houses.
Torcello, once a city larger than Venice; today, a bucolic island with a 1,000-year-old cathedral and a handful of outdoor restaurants.
