It shouldn’t be surprising that art, literature, and music are essential aspects of northern Italy. Surrounded by stunning natural beauty, dramatic history, and deep cultural traditions, it’s easy to understand why writers (such as Robert Browning), artists, and musicians have been enamored of and inspired by various locations in the Northern regions of Italy we will visit on this amazing trip — Piedmont, Lombardy, and Veneto. Be captivated each day by the lakes, gardens, cities, countryside, and historic sites. Of course, this is Italy, so culinary delights and award winning wines are also an important part of any visit and you’ll savor a delicious diversity of regional food and wine.
