Including a Special Concert with Andrea Bocelli Under The Stars
Rolling pasta in the kitchen of an Italian nonna, then dining ai fiori on your pillow-y soft pasta and fresh-from-the-garden veggies…
Wandering the verdant rows of vines hanging heavy with grapes about to be turned into prized Prosecco, the sweet smell of harvest in the air…
Sailing around the Venetian Lagoon on your private boat, past the iconic spires of St. Mark’s Square and shallow canals that melt into the deep blue Adriatic Sea…
Taking your seat beneath the stars as the orchestral music swells—and then hearing the singular voice of opera sensation Andrea Bocelli pierce the night …
On this intimate tour, you won’t have to imagine. Join Laney Sachs along with Veneto local Monica Busatto for 7 exceptional days and 6 nights exploring the Veneto, a region anchored by resplendent Venice and studded with picturesque medieval villages and vineyards.
Traveling during heady harvest season (vendemmia), we’ll prioritize Prosecco vineyard tours and tastings throughout our journey. We’ll check into our home base Albergo al Sole housed in a 16th-century villa—in the charming medieval town of Asolo, known as the Pearl of the Veneto. Our days will be filled with cooking classes, market tours, and wine tastings—and we’ll spend one very special night with the one and only Andrea Bocelli.
Our small group of 12* people will travel by our own comfortable minibus, with an entirely seamless itinerary designed for you. And don't worry, you'll have time to relax and spend time meandering on your own.
