Detailed Description

There is no better way to stretch your body and mind than on an 8-day yoga retreat on the outskirts of Rome. Combine the splendors of the imperial capital with the authentic charm of a rural town in the Sabine Hills. Relax with an active lifestyle painting, trekking, cooking, or exploring at a pace you prefer to find your center in the heart of Italy. Your journey begins with your arrival at the Fiumicino airport in Rome. Your private transfer escorts to the historic city center where you settle into your luxurious hotel located in what was once a noble palace. Meet your private guide in the lobby to tour the historic walkways, piazzas, and monuments, including the harmonious design of the Pantheon.

The following day, you wake up with an encompassing tour of ancient Rome, taking in the Roman Forum, Colosseum, and both the Palatine and Capitoline hills. Your private transfer escorts you out of Rome to the charming medieval village of Caserta, located in the Sabine Hills. Take the time to explore the villa and the town before enjoying dinner. The following morning, your yoga retreat begins with a morning session before you partake in a horseback riding tour of the countryside. Relish the challenge and relaxation of morning and afternoon sessions of yoga divided by a refreshing visit to the thermal baths at Viterbo.

Next, you partake in a delightful watercolor painting class to capture the splendor of the hills, vineyards, olive orchards, and medieval townscape after participating in your morning yoga ritual. Then, you once again have two yoga sessions. Divide your class with time wandering along the narrow lanes of Caserta and a cooking class situated in a cooking school that was once a farmhouse. Learn the specialties of the Roman countryside in a class focused on organic cuisine with ingredients taken from the garden and farm on the property.

You indulge in your final morning yoga class before returning to the palatial comforts of your hotel in Rome. The remainder of the day is at your leisure to discover the treasures of the Eternal City. Relish a gelato tour of the historic center or visit Vatican City for a remarkable artistic journey through the centuries. On the final day, your private transfer meets you at the hotel and escorts you to Rome’s international airport for your flight home.
