Mom and I arrived in Orvieto late yesterday afternoon via train from Rome. It was a wonderful sunny evening with all the summer flowers in full bloom.
We took the cable car up the hill then the bus and arrived at San Lodovico our home for the next 10 days. It is an amazing building which used to be a palace then a convent before being renovated into a hotel. We were warmly greeted by Kristi and Bill Steiner the organizers of Adventures in Italy.
We have a lovely little room which has this wonderful view.
The inside of San Lodovico is very interesting with lots of wonderful light and interesting rooms. Here is a little tour of a couple of rooms.
There is also a wonderful courtyard with interesting mosaics and plantings.
Mom and I had a lovely pizza lunch in town followed by an afternoon nap.
The architecture, metal work and wonderful wood work is going to be so inspirational for my students in my class. I can't wait to start journaling.
