Italia Musicale

This tour combines visits to the great Italian cities of Milan, Venice, Florence and Rome with a flavour of the smaller towns of Assisi and Ravenna. It is the ideal tour for an introduction to Italy. It can be easily adapted to include visits to Naples and Pompeii by adding two or three days at the end, in which case we would use Sorrento for your overnight accommodation. The choice of venues for your concerts in Italy is breathtaking and we show a mixture of the great cathedrals and smaller churches. Of course, the venues we book for your performances are subject to availability on the dates that you are present.
