High on the list of the world’s most captivating destinations is northern Italy’s fabled Lake District. Its extraordinary landscape of glacial waters, Alpine peaks and ancient towns painted in ocher and terra cotta hues, combined with its rich history and distinct bella figura Italian style, have inspired poets, composers, musicians, artists and philosophers for centuries. Join our small group of alumni travelers in the quintessentially Italian città di Como—your picturesque “home” for a full week—for this one-of-a-kind, Village Life around the Italian Lakes soggiorno, an exceptional way to experience the true essence of life in Italy’s beautiful regions of Lombardy and Piedmont. Our carefully designed, expert-guided excursions explore the artistic and architectural treasures commissioned by Roman aristocrats, medieval lords and Renaissance princes, including the fashionable city of Milan and a specially arranged viewing of Leonardo da Vinci’s renowned masterpiece, The Last Supper, in the UNESCO World Heritage-designated Santa Maria delle Grazie. Enriching presentations and the exclusive Village Life Forum featuring local residents, offer you personal perspectives on Lombardy’s cultural heritage and contemporary life. You will taste northern Italy’s acclaimed cuisine and wines and learn basic Italian phrases to make your time in Como all the more delightful.
