This remarkable tour provided us with unique and heartwarming events from 5 to 13 October. We arrived in Udine on Saturday 5 October and visited Clauiano in the evening. On Sunday 6 October we visited the roman sites at Aquileia and lunched in Grado. The group visited  the Fruili Mosaic School in Spilimbergo  on 7 October, and on 8 October we visited Udine.
