We are pleased to invite you to join an intimate group of discerning participants for our unique, private discovery of Rome and the Lazio region’s historic, emblematic private palazzi and villas—many inaccessible to the public—offering a rare opportunity to savor unique architecture, décor, art collections and exquisite gardens—during which we will be received by members of the Italian cultural elite for exclusive visits and private receptions.
