Day 2

In the historical centre of  Rome we will admire one of the most astonishing contemporary works of the recent years: the monumental Triumphs and Laments murals by William Kentridge. We will stop for some white pizza, freshly baked from one of the historic bakeries near Campo dei Fiori Square, and have coffee in an old cafè. In the early afternoon, we’ll move on to Genzano and will stay in a nice and cozy farmhouse. Here we’ll meet Margherita, a Flower Master who will show us the courtyards of the historical city center used for piking flowers (the so called “Speluccamento”) in preparation of the Infiorata.  Dinner will be held at a typical restaurant in Genzano.

Day 3

A chef will accompany us to do shopping in the shops of the old town of Frascati, to select the ingredients for a tasty seasonal menu. During an exclusive cooking-lesson we will be shown how to turn them into a gourmet lunch and we’ll also enjoy a wine tasting. And for dessert, a master ice-cream maker will illustrate the secrets of gourmet “gelato” . In the afternoon we will walk in the charming village of Nemi and relax at the farmhouse. We will then have dinner in a typical restaurant in Genzano.

After dinner we will go see the preparatory drawings that are the basis of the floral paintings made for the Infiorata.

Day 4

In the basin of Lake Albano we will live a unique experience immersed in the nature of one of the most beautiful parks of the Lazio Region. Aboard a kayak, we will row in the lake waters admiring the flora and fauna of the unspoiled Mediterranean vegetation overlooking the town of Castel Gandolfo. Once on the mainland, we will enjoy seafood and wine along the lake.

Then we will visit the charming town and return to Lanuvio.

After dinner, we will meet the Flower Master again and admire the ancient technique of laying the petals on the cobblestone and giving shape to the drawings.

Day 5

We will spend Sunday morning in complete relax at the farmhouse. In the late afternoon we will see the “Infiorata” along Via Livia.

Free at dinner time.   

Day 6

We will visit Castel Gandolfo with its artisan shops, walk along the lake and admire the contemporary murals. From here we will move on to Ariccia, where we will visit the village and enjoy our lunch in a “fraschetta”. We will then visit the sumptuous Palazzo Chigi.

In Genzano we will witness the parade of the historical procession with traditional costumes and the ceremony of the so called “spallamento” (children racing on the flower petals).

Dinner at the farmhouse.
