Dolce Vita Italy – First Overview

  • Three Days in Rome & at the Vatican

    Welcome to Italy: Benvenuti!

    DOLCE VITA, your Italian springtime experience alongside WRA’s performing arts student concert tour MUSICA starts in the capital city of Rome.
    Stroll through the historic center, see major sights and regular local neighborhoods up close — and from your hotels’ beautiful rooftop terrace. Shop for unique gifts, made in Italy.  Hear WRA sing at St. Peter’s Basilica and at a beautiful Roman church. If you haven’t been, visit the Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel and/or tour the Colosseum with the Roman Forum. Let’s not forget all the great food + drinks awaiting you in the Eternal City.

    The WRA students stays at H10Roma Città for three nights — and you can opt for  superior accommodations in the same place. Or, splurge on an  EPIC upgrade and make our all time favorite five star boutique hotel Indigo St. George your Roman home away from home.

  • Under The Tuscan Sun

    See Siena + Florence

    Spring in Tuscany is a must-experience, and visiting Florence without the crowds is priceless.

    DOLCE VITA traveler can stay in upgraded accommodations at the student hotel Borgo di Cortefreda (2 nights) or splurge to sight-sleep in the heart of Florence (3 nights) in a historic family-owned property that’s on the coveted Condé Nast Reader’s Choice list.


  • Umbria Experiences

    Explore Perugia + Assisi

    Your final destination’s Umbria: the “Green Heart of Italy”.  With charming Perugia + Assisi, being the places you’ve likely heard of, but also smaller charming villages nearby. Depending on your DOLCE VITA choice, you’ll spend four or three nights (EPIC) in this stunning region off the beaten path. In Umbria, WRA will be featured in the renowned Musica dal Mondo festival – with concerts and recitals we’ll make sure you won’t miss.

    In Umbria, DOLCE VITA may check-into a superior Jazz room at the student property Hotel Gio (4 nights), or as the EPIC upgrade guest you’ll stay  in the city center of Perugia at Hotel Sina Brufani (3 nights).
