Will you join me on my dream trip to Italy?
From May 9 – 20 I will be travelling to Milan and Venice on an unforgettable tour with Classical FM listeners. We’ll start in Milan, a powerhouse of fashion and design, also rich with music history. Over 3 exciting days, we’ll tour the famous La Scala museum, and then experience the historic venue in all its present-day glory as we take in a performance of world-class ballet. We’ll visit Casa Verdi, the retirement home for musicians founded by the great opera composer, and featured in the film “Quartet”!
And then: a day at Lake Como. A popular retreat since Roman times, Lake Como is home to stunning villas and palaces — and many celebrities! We’ll take a boat tour of the colourful lakeside villages, and stop in Bellagio where Green Thumbs will be inspired by the lush gardens of Villa Melzi, a favourite retreat of Franz Liszt himself! After that, you can sip an aperitif and enjoy a private choral concert in one of the local churches!
After Milan, we’ll climb aboard the luxurious 5-star Uniworld River Cruise and begin our VIP journey of Venice. Venice! “The Floating City,” “The City of Bridges,” “La Serenissima” – Venice has been on my bucket list for a long time, and I’ll hope you’ll join me as we discover this cultural jewel. Over 7 nights we’ll take in everything The Queen of the Adriatic has to offer. From an exclusive tour of St. Mark’s Basilica given by an art historian after all the tourists have gone home, to a private concert of music by one of the city’s favourite musical sons, Antonio Vivaldi; there will be excursions to Bologna where you can learn the art of pasta making, to Burano where lace-making is king, and to Chioggia where you can enjoy a bicycle tour the Venetian Island’s beaches.
This trip is fully escorted so you don’t have to worry about a thing! And on board the Uniworld Cruise everything is included – EVERYTHING. It is true luxury, like Dowton Abbey but without the stuffy clothes! Have a craving? You need only ask and it will appear, and your wallet stays in the safe the entire time! Talk about relaxing… You really don’t have to think about a thing, except saving room for all the delicious meals you’re going to eat!
It’s going to be a feast for all the senses. Join me!
