view web site ›'s insider take:

This re-created 16th-century Italian village set on the cliffs outside La Romana is home to an extraordinary artistic and cultural center. Cobblestone streets wind among artists' ateliers, where visitors can stop in and watch silk-screeners, ceramicists, and weavers practicing their trades, and buy their wares at galleries and shops. There are also art classrooms where workshops are frequently held (the community is affiliated with the Parsons School of Design in New York) and a 5,000-seat outdoor amphitheater where headliners like Frank Sinatra and Carlos Santana have performed. There's a small entry fee to get into the village (about $5), and two entrances. One is near the Casa de Campo resort; the other is along the highway between La Romana and La Higuey.
