THE SAVOY, ROME
An aristocratic 18th Century palazzo and its amazing Terrace in the Heart of Rome, The Savoy is named after Queen Margherita of Savoy, who stayed here in the early 1900s. The hotel steeps itself in an inviting Old World style: the lobby is filled with plush furniture and gilded motifs and classical design elements (antique furniture pieces, dark marble), incorporated into the otherwise contemporary room decor. The rooftop garden and bar -- connected to the on-site Granet Restaurant -- is a huge draw for its impressive views of Rome. The hotel is located on the corner of the renowned Via Veneto, a step away from Villa Borghese, the Spanish Steps, and the Trevi Fountain.
Excursions in Rome
Morning – Optional: Business exchange! Experience how your profession relates to Italy! Meet your career counterpart to learn how business in Italy translates to your work in Florida. Leadership Florida staff will send an advisory to all trip participants on ways to identify your professional counterpart. OR use this as free time for shopping in the Via Condotti or individual tours.
Afternoon - Bus tour of Rome, Roman Forum, and tour of Colosseum.

Travel to Pompeii, late lunch (on your own) on the return at an oceanfront site, to return in time for dinners (on your own) around Rome.
Grand Hotel Baglioni, Florence
Former residence of the Carrega Bertolini Princes, Grand Hotel Baglioni is just 1,000 feet from Santa Maria Novella Train Station. Established in 1903, its interiors are decorated with frescos, paintings, historic photos, and statues. For more than 100 years, it has played host to kings and heads of state, artists, and intellectuals, carving out its place as a true landmark of the cultural and economic life of the city.
