Ronta is home to the Marrani Hotel, located in a small village set amongst the trees of the Mugello. With a railway running through the village, you can access much of the North and Central Italy. You can visit Florence and eat out by the Arno or go North and West to see the Byzantine mosaics at Ravenna. During the month of October there is a chestnut festival in Marradi, a small town further in to the Mugello. There will be outings to places you cannot easily reach by public transport; Sienna Lucca and other really fascinating places.
Life gets continuously more difficult for a variety of reasons. We just have to learn to cope. It is essential to keep going because life when you have nothing to look forward too is depressing. Keeping going has always meant trying something new. So here we are at it again with a new slant on our philosophical theme of lifelong learning in a challenging collegiate environment where adding a little exercise keeps the brain cells working. That’s a way to enhance life.
The hotel is run by a family and is not part of a chain: Claudia and Riccardo are your local hosts. The nearest small town is San Lorenzo: a bus will take you there. Two hundred metres from the hotel is a railway station with trains to Florence (going south) Faenza and Ravenna (going north). You can use it as a base to explore a great deal of the most historic parts of Italy (Tuscany Umbria, Emilia-Romagna, Liguria). If you are energetic even Rome and Venice, Milan and Turin. Being based economically in Ronta could give you a magic month in Italy.
This is the area where the Italian Renaissance came to maturity and the culture of the west gathered its initial energy which has influenced us all to the present day. So the core of the holiday will be a daily programme of activities in the Hotel covering the interests that usually appeal to you : language, watercolour painting, music, history, keep fit, In order to justify the relatively low price we need enough support: — a target number of around seventy and a maximum number of one hundred. Any help we can acquire to achieve this will l be much appreciated. We have something stimulating to look forward to: the essence of life itself.
Relax Learn Explore to which we can add “Experience”, which is worth enjoying. Join us!
"We stayed at the hotel as part of a trip to Tuscany and Liguria. We had chosen the half board option which turned out to be a great choice.
