We stay and hold workshops in the 4-star Hotel Giotto. Situated within the walls of the old city of Assisi halfway between the Basilica of San Francesco and the Comune di Assisi (the central piazza), it is comfortable, elegant, air-conditioned, and well appointed with a full and very helpful staff. Housed in an eighteenth-century building, it has modern updates yet retains its historic charm. All our rooms have a private bath and a magnificent view of the town and the Umbrian plain below. The guest rooms, dining room, terraces, and the studio all face the panoramic view.

A full breakfast buffet is offered in the dining room or on the outside terrace. The four-course dinner includes an antipasto/salad bar, pasta, main entrée, dessert, and local wines. Menus change daily with vegetarian and gluten free options available. 

Art Workshop International has been coming to Italy each summer since 1983 where we have become part of the history and culture of Assisi. We form a cohesive community, meeting together for a drink and a meal at the end of the day forming lasting friendships where lives are changed by the experience. It’s a time to kick back, relax, and have fun. For many it’s a dream to be part of this workshop experience. 

One of the advantages of the Art Workshop visual arts program is the large air-conditioned studio that's within the hotel for our exclusive use. It has floor-to-ceiling windows, accessible 24 hours a day so that artists are able to work at any time. There is full internet access with wi-fi and wired connections in each room and wi-fi throughout the hotel.
