Travel to La Romita:
When planning your trip, all you need to do is book your flight so that you arrive at Rome Leonardo Da Vinci (FCO) airport before 10:30AM on the morning of the first day of your session, and that your return flight leaves from Rome after 10:30AM on the last day of the program. We will pick you up from Rome in a chartered bus and bring you to La Romita, and drop you off with plenty of time to check in.
More detailed information is included in materials you will receive when you register. We will also ask for information about your travel arrangements to help ensure smooth pickup and drop-off.
We STRONGLY ADVISE participants to purchase fully-refundable airline tickets. This is intended to cover you from any emergencies including last-minute personal situations that might prevent you from attending. Other insurance can be purchased through third-party providers like SquareMouth.
Cancellation and Refunds:
La Romita’s refund policy only applies to individuals who are paying La Romita directly to attend a workshop. If you are paying someone else to attend a workshop hosted at La Romita then contact that person to find out what their policies are. If you need to cancel your registration for any reason, please let us know as soon as possible by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are able to find a replacement to fill your spot, we will issue a full refund.
If you would prefer, and if room is available, we can apply the balance towards a different workshop (even in a different season) for a $50 administrative fee.
Otherwise, the following fees will be deducted from your refund:
- $500 will be held as non-refundable to cover administrative fees.
- Cancellation 45 – 90 days before the workshop start-date: 75% of the workshop price.
- With less than 45 days notice, La Romita reserves the right to retain the full cost of your workshop as a cancellation fee.
If the class has to be cancelled for reasons outside of our control, you will receive a full refund (minus deposit) even if the cancellation occurs within the 90 day window. If the class is rescheduled, and you are unable to attend the rescheduled class, you will receive a refund, minus your deposit.
Starting with the 2021 Season: We offer a 7%-off the workshop price if you are a returnee or if you are bringing along a spouse or friend. These discounts apply only to workshops run directly by La Romita.
