Splendors of Spoleto Festival Tour: July 5 – 13, 2017
Join Executive Director Michelle Witt in Italy for the Spoleto Festival, as she takes an intimate group of arts lovers for a magical behind-the-scenes tour next summer. Founded by Italian-American composer Gian Carlo Menotti in 1958, Spoleto Festival dei Due Mondi remains one of the greatest festivals in the world, offering over 200 concerts and performances.
Nestled in the picturesque hill towns of Southern Umbria, spend a week enjoying classical music and dance, while soaking up the unique dolce vita of the Italian countryside meandering through the ancient towns of Perugia, Assisi, and Orvieto.
Savor wine and cuisine in private homes and farms, along with guided tours and lectures of the region’s cultural and architectural treasures. As special guests, attend one of Angela Hewitt’s nearby Trasimeno Piano Festival concerts, held in the 15th century Castle of the Knights of Malta in Magione.
Stay at Hotel San Luca: an elegant four-star hotel, located inside Spoleto’s medieval walls.
