GIORGIA'S ROMAN BRIDGE HOLIDAY

GIORGIA'S ROMAN BRIDGE HOLIDAY

Giorgia’s Roman Bridge Holiday

A Bridge Holiday in Rome, organized and curated by your very own Roman, Giorgia Botta.

Our Bridge Pro, and part of the Bridge Professors™, Giorgia is our native Italian bridge pro and comes from the "Eternal City" Rome.

We know that you have probably all been to Rome, but this experience will not be your typical Roman holiday.

We will stay at the Lord Byron Hotel- described as a hotel with the warmth and luxury of a private home - located in one of the chicest residential neighborhoods in Rome.
We will teach and play bridge at Giorgia’s local bridge Club "Accademia del Bridge". The sanctioned games will award Master Points...as you play at tables not only with our group but also with other local Roman players.

We will visit some of Giorgia's favorite places to see the real Rome. This will include optional excursions designed by your host as well as optional dining at some of the local spots that she frequents.

Come for the 'local' unspoiled experience of Rome, play and learn from one of the best bridge professionals, have some fun with your fellow bridge enthusiasts.

Package includes:
5 nights at the Lord Byron Hotel- member of Small Luxury Hotels with daily breakfast.

Sunday, Sept. 15: Caffe delle arti (6:30 -9 PM) Opening Reception
Caffe della Arti is a gem of a Roma Nord. The caffe is situated inside the refined Modern Art Gallery building (Galleria Nazionale di Arte Moderna). Its elegant and artistic fare and beautiful sun-kissed terrace make for the perfect location for a stylish roman ‘apericina’ aka cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. This is included in your 5 night package.

Monday Sept. 16: Casalino Hosteria Kosher 8 PM: Optional Dinner
Caslino, situated in the heart of the Roman Jewish ghetto, offers a real culinary journey through the ‘jewish-roman cuisine. Similar to a more traditional roman cuisine, but with the contribution of usual and more mediterranean-like flavors, it has been a real treat for visitors to the Italian capital for centuries!

Tuesday, Sept. 17: Da Cesare al Casaletto: 8:15 PM: Optional Dinner
“Da Cesare” (as the Romans would call it), is a staple of the local cuisine serving all the traditional roman dishes---plus many modern dishes as well---in an airy outdoor venue with a beautiful vine-covered patio.
