What to expect

Take part in this plaster workshop and take home a piece of Umbrian summer: a plaster sunflower. In this 3-hour course, you will learn the ancient art of plaster making that has given shape to stuccoes that continue to decorate countless Italian palaces today.

You will be taught how to prepare the plaster-based dough and how to color the molds. You will get to try your hand at the gold leaf gilding technique and will get to use tempera paints. Your tutor will then help you choose whether to lacquer, patinate or wax the object you have created, and finally, you will be the one to extract your creation from its mold to see the results.

    Boat Trip to Positano & Amalfi
    Activities

    Boat Trip to Positano & Amalfi

    The lure of the Amalfi Coast's cascading villas, vertiginous coastal towns and half-moon beaches all beckon on this full day excursion. A hydrofoil boat ride from Casamicciola in Ischia kicks off the day so you'll be making your approach into Amalfi in time for a cappuccino in one of the piazzas. After a couple of hours wandering the cobbled streets, you'll hop over to Positano, whose colourful buildings appear to hang from the sides of the surrounding cliffs. You'll have another couple of hours to yourself to sample some limoncello, dabble in some boutique shopping or chill out on the beach.

    Procida Half-day with Transfer

    Boasting more colours than an artist's palette, Procida is like a postcard come to life. After crossing over by hydrofoil, you'll have three hours to explore at your own pace the smallest island in the Bay of Naples. It's so compact that you could walk from north to south in under an hour. For the best pics, make a beeline for Terra Murata. This elevated headland is also home to San Michele Abbey – a honey-hued church that houses a museum dedicated to the island's dramatic Easter processions. Then head to rainbow-coloured La Corricella harbour. Packed with bars and cafés, stop for a drink or a bite to eat and get a glimpse of local life
