The poetry retreat far exceeded my expectations. Well-planned and carried out with a good balance of time devoted to poetry at the villa and time spent touring. The scenery and setting are unbelievably beautiful and inspiring. And, of course, the food was marvelous.

I attended the food photography and styling workshop and I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Rome Retreats. From the smooth planning process and organization for my trip to the experience of expanding my photography knowledge in such an inspiring atmosphere, it was an unforgettable experience. The hospitality was top notch and the food at the villa is by far the best food you will ever have on a retreat.
