I’ll be posting here on this blog just two more times before we melt off into retirement. Bittersweet to be sure, but so full of memories of this extraordinary city we have been visiting for 15 years. So I’d like to pay her homage with pictures from a lovely fall day last year. I wandered the city this day after our last group had left enamored of the beautiful light and welcoming entryways. This really is a beautiful city. It is worth getting off the main streets and wandering the back lanes – not just here but in any place you visit. Charming, quiet, delightful.
|Kristi and Bill Steiner began leading “learning vacations” to Orvieto, Italy in 2003. Through Adventures in Italy they provide a cultural immersion experience. Many trips include the pursuit of some kind of creative work that complements and reinforces exploration of Italy’s culture. Relationships built over the years enable Kristi and Bill to provide experiences that a typical visitor to Orvieto never gets.
Trips are held in May and September/October every year. Their Discover Orvieto and Taste of Orvieto trips are available to groups any time of the year.
