Rocky Ruggiero culture programs

Jump to last reply

Is anyone familiar with Rocky's week-long programs that layer garden tours, cooking classes, and language class, onto a base of daily lectures on art? He's based in Florence.

They sound very interesting and impress me as a week-long immersion version of ContextRome. I learned about that company years ago from numerous raves in this forum and I would add my own, having taken several tours with them in both Rome and Florence.

I'm interested in improving my intermediate Italian, touring gardens, and learning more about art and culture in Italy. Add in food and wine knowledge and enjoyment. If not Rocky, are there any other small group venues members might suggest? I'm also happy to stitch the parts together myself, should anyone have recommendations for any one of the topics in my list.

Thinking 1-2 weeks before the summer rush. Thank you!
