In an era too often marked by acts of incivility, Robert’s Fund aims to elevate the way we treat one another in the legal profession and to inspire acts of courtesy, kindness, and compassion among members of the profession. Increased civility demonstrably improves outcomes for legal professionals and the people that they serve. And because legal professionals profoundly influence society, even outside their formal work, their behavior often sets the tenor of corporate, political, and social interactions.

Ground transportation

Group travel during the seminar, from pickup to drop-off at the airport, is provided by IdealViaggi, which means "ideal trip" in Italian.  Their safe, courteous drivers and comfortable, modern fleet of buses and vans are a perfect reflection of the company's name. 

Travel time between Rome's Fiumicino Airport (FCO) and Sovana is approximately 2 1/2 hours.  Enjoy the scenic countryside and a stop for refreshments along the way to and from the seminar site. There is no train station in Sovana, the nearest station is 1 hour away, so we suggest either joining the group on the bus or renting a car.

The bus will leave Fiumicino Airport to go to Sovana at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 14, 2018.

The bus will leave Sovana to go to Fiumicino Airport at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 22, 2018.

Airline reservations


If you are planning on using our bus transportation to Sovana, you will want to plan your departure so you arrive in Rome’s Fiumicino Airport by 12 noon on Saturday, April 14. Many participants choose to arrive in Rome the day prior (April 13) and spend the night in Rome or near the airport in the town of Fiumicino.


We recommend that you plan to stay the night of Sunday, April 22, because most flights to the U.S. leave very early in the morning.  If you stay near the airport, most hotels have shuttles to the airport. We want you to have a stress-free departure from Sovana. You will get to Fiumicino around 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 22, which will give you sufficient time to take the train into the center of Rome, where you can enjoy an afternoon and evening.  The Airport Hilton (not the Garden Inn) has sky bridge access directly to the airport.  We recommend you make your airline reservations as early as possible to get the best deals. In addition, you might want to purchase travel insurance.
