Italy owns an astonishing thirty percent of the world's cultural heritage. Fine arts, architecture, food, wine and design are some of the best known treasures, but for many, it is the music of Italy's great composers that they hold most dear.
Join me, Suzanne Bona of Sunday Baroque for a twelve-day classical music lovers journey to "Bella Italia" and celebrate the lives of Verdi, Rossini, Farinelli, Vivaldi, Monteverdi, Stradivarius, Donizetti, Toscanini, and Puccini. Walk in the footsteps of great Italian composers by visiting the very places the masters loved, lived and worked. Enjoy in-depth, private tours highlighting the origins of painting and sculpture in central Italy. Along the way, you'll be introduced to the culinary arts and visit the producers of balsamic vinegar, delicious olive oils, and mouth-watering cheeses.
This exclusive Sunday Baroque journey will also include tickets to an opera performance at the La Fenice Opera House in Venice, an opera recital in Verdi's hometown of Busseto, a concert featuring works by Vivaldi, and a tour of the Stradivarius museum in Cremona. Your journey concludes on the beautiful tranquil shores of Lake Como where Verdi relaxed and composed much of La Traviata.
