A TASTE OF BELLA ITALIA

Umbria * Tuscany * Venice

With WWNO New Orleans Public Radio

October 18-28, 2017

Dear friends, please join WWNO and a like-minded group of curious travelers for a one-of-a-kind, culturally rich, delectable journey to bella Italia. 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. Together we will explore ancient Rome, Tuscany hill towns, sip fine wines and sample mouth-watering cheeses. Our custom journey also includes an in-depth look at a new project intended to protect the city of Venice from flooding.
