Highlighting the value of travel and the sharing of stories


People connected to the ACT network travel internationally together to see great landmarks and along the way are securing tickets to highly competitive exhibitions, meeting new people and learning from each other's culture, architecture and way of life.

It was a fantastic 4 days, and my warmest thanks to my lovely Italian friends Mauro Mercanti and Giancarlo Antonini who live outside Frascati.  Mauro, grazie mille for your generosity and wonderful tours of Ninfa, the best bits of central Rome, Frascati and Gandolfini!  They are treasured memories. 

On the tour we discovered the Garden of Ninfa, described as ”the most romantic garden in the world” and ”Italy’s best kept secret” together with Castelli Romani, the historic Roman castles area of Rome.
