Archaeology-cum-food tour of Rome, October 2013
The Archaeological Institute of America organizes tours with leading archaeologists. This one, called "A Taste of Ancient Rome," was led by Elizabeth Bartman, president of the AIA, a distinguished scholar and good friend, and moi. It combined fascinating archaeological visits with delicious gastronomic touring and tasting, all based in and around Rome, with accommodations at a great hotel in the heart of the centro storico.
