Interested? Fill out our A New England Sojourn Interest Form

No place can compare to Rome. And no time is better than autumn in the Eternal City, where we’ll have exclusive access to some of the most private and elusive places in the Italian capital. From the great villas built in and around the city, to the most secret gardens, the best of Rome will unfold for us.

There will be exclusive, private visits to the Sistine Chapel and the Villa Medici, and meals at the Palazzo Patrizi and the American Academy in Rome. Not to mention special visits to the Papal Palace of Castel Gandolfo, Parco dei Mostri, and a secret, private villa that has been in one noble family for over 400 years.

We’ll be based at the luxurious Hotel de la Ville, noted for its confluence of classical Roman design and contemporary cool. Housed in an 18th century palazzo at the top of the Spanish Steps, the hotel has breathtaking views of the city and features three restaurants, an enchanting courtyard, and a Sicilian-inspired spa.
