Music and Wine in Italy

Thursday 15 - Wednesday 21 June 2017

The Collio region of north east Italy, renowned for its fine wines, is a beautiful area with a fascinating history. From the small town of Cormons, where this holiday will be based, we are within easy reach of some of Italy’s most interesting, almost unknown, treasures. We will visit the magnificent Basilica in Aquileia, the cosmopolitan city of Trieste, the ancient city of Cividale and the Archbishop's palace at Udine (famous for its Tiepolo paintings). We will also visit Piran, the Slovenian fishing village where the composer
and violinist Guiseppe Tartini was born in 1692.
