The Casa di Santa Francesca Romana a Pone Rotto in Trastevere, is conveniently located a block or two from Tiber Island in one direction and the Viale di Trastevere in the other, just across the Tiber River, walkable distance from the historic center of Rome. Participants will stay in two or three bedroom air-conditioned rooms each with a private bath. Meals and snacks provided on lab days are catered.

During the field trip to Campania, participants will enjoy the beautiful Villa Vergiliana, a three-story villa situated at the northwestern corner of the Bay of Naples and enjoy regional cooking prepared by the local cooks who utilize the food grown on the property.
