11:00 AM Seven Days in Italy. La Bella Italia.

From the snow covered Alps in the north to the dreamy lagoon city of Venice and its palaces and its world famous “Carnevale”. From the romantic hill landscape of Toscana where the aromas once inspired Leonardo Da Vinci to Rome, the city that during antiquity was the center of the Roman Empire and then to Sicily in the South, an island of gods and natural forces. A journey through time in one of the most beautiful countries in the World.

12:00 PM Francesco’s Italy: Italy Top To Toe!

Francesco da Mosto, author and architect, takes us on a sweeping tour of the art, history and beauty of Italy. Francesco leaves Venice, his birthplace and home and heads to the romantic North in his Alfa Romeo Spider. We travel to the beautiful cities of Padova, Vicenza, Ferrara, Bologna, Mantova, Milano, Portofino and then visit Le Marche, Urbino, Florence, Lucca, Siena, and Assisi. Arriving in the heart of Italy we visit Rome, Tivoli and on to Naples. Finally we go to the South and visit Puglia, Basilicata, Reggio Calabria and Sicily in all of its splendor and it is here that Francesco’s journey becomes personal—his family lived here for over 500 years.
