Welcome

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.

Sovana Tour and Etruscan Tombs $55

Once a bustling epicenter of Etruscan life, historic Sovana boasts a rich history along its cobblestone streets. This excursion begins with a walking tour of Sovana, with stops at the commanding duomo, or cathedral. Within its walls you'll discover beautiful frescoes and masonry, as well as the history of this and other remarkable buildings in the town.

Just outside the village of Sovana is an archeological park that displays a grouping of surprisingly well-preserved Etruscan tombs. Our local tour guide, Carlo Rosati, will lead the group high up into the park for a close up view of the tombs that were carefully carved into the tufo stone in the 6th century B.C. On this excursion the group will also catch a glimpse of the canyonlike vie cave trails that connect the ancient Tuscan towns. This is a hilly experience along uneven dirt paths, so sturdy shoes are recommended.
