Unique, Alternative Journeys: A Musical Interlude through Southern Italy
Departure September 13 – 21, 2019
This journey explores the magnificent historic sites, distinctive towns and glorious art in the area around the storied Bay of Naples, as well as enjoying high-quality classical chamber music at privately arranged concerts held in unique venues. Our home for seven nights will be Naples, one of Europe’s most fascinating and interesting cities. Founded by Greeks in the 6th century BC and called Neapolis, Naples was Europe’s preeminent cultural and artistic city during the Baroque period, when it was home to celebrated artists, writers and composers, including Scarlatti, Pergolesi, Cimarosa, Donizetti and Rossini. Amassed in its museums are incredible treasures, while its streets and squares are lined with palaces and churches of impressive architecture. Naples is also known for its vitality, zest for life, dynamic contemporary culture and its great cuisine.
