ROMA IN MAY
All roads lead to Rome! You and up to 6 friends or family members will stay at the UW Rome Center Penthouse Apartment, located in the heart of Rome’s historic district. This is a great trip for a family (or 2 families!), or could be a great vacation for your parents or in-laws. Rome is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe…the rich history and culture, stunning ancient ruins, and majestic monuments surround you. It is also a modern city and you will savor the finest foods, in the most charming of restaurants. You will feel like a local in your spacious penthouse featuring a furnished terrace overlooking Campo de’ Fiori, an open market, as well as panoramic views of the Eternal City. There are two bedrooms, two full baths, living room and a fully equipped kitchen. Amenities include a washing machine, dishwasher, TV/DVD player, cell phone for guest use, and unlimited high speed internet.
This trip includes two $600 United Airlines vouchers. The dates of travel are May 24th-May 30th. May is the perfect month to travel in Rome, as the temperatures are mild and the crowds are at a minimum.
Thank you…Jim Rogers & Christine Ingebritsen, Phil & Anne Kennedy, Randy & Meg Bannecker, Kathy & Ted Perkins, Michelle & David Rudd, Gretchen & John Hollett, Lisa & Ethan Caldwell
