Italy in the fall...

Join us in this beautiful medieval city on the Adige River for an atmosphere of relaxation and self-discovery. Warning: Inspirational and memorable experiences are ahead.

Your adventure will include sight-seeing tours both in Verona and outside of the city and a writing workshop. What better place to write than in the place made famous by Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet! Prior writing experience isn't required. The goals of this retreat are somewhat open-ended, with attendees able to choose what they want to get out of the experience.

Your adventure will include the following:

  • Lodging in the beautiful Hotel Torcolo, located in the historic city center   
  • Breakfast, Monday - Friday
  • Welcome Dinner - Sunday evening 
  • Verona Card (provides free admission to various attractions and also use of the AMT public transport system)
  • Walking tour of Verona  
  • One-day excursion outside of the city. This includes transportation and admission fees to see:
    • Sirimione, located on Lake Garda and including Castle Scalinger
    • A walk through Lazise, a cozy medieval walled village
    • A wine tasting of Bardolino wine in a family-run winery 
  • Writing workshop, including your own journal, pen and map of the city 
  • 1-on-1 coaching session with Bob on the topic(s) of your choice

There will also be scheduled free time so you can stroll around Verona and explore on your own. 

The retreat will be instructional, but what you get out of it is really up to you. Some possibilities are:  

  •          Get in better touch with who you are
  •           Write a book
  •           Capture the memories of the trip to be able to relive that or share it with a loved one
