It’s possible to learn about so many different areas of study in the Bel paese (beautiful country) of Italy. Consider:
Italy is home to a veritable wealth of fine art. From historic paintings like the incomparable Sistine Chapel ceiling painted by Michelangelo in Rome or The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci in Milan, to Michelangelo’s famous sculpture of David in Florence, every region is steeped in the work of Italy’s greatest artists through the generations. Avventure Bellissime offers several tours for travelers to enjoy the art of Italy.
Across Italy you will find examples of awe-inspiring architectural designs from the last several hundred years. There are amazing examples of Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance buildings to see when you tour Venice by canal boat, the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge in Florence with its myriad shops that have enticed travelers for hundreds of years, or the Duomo Cathedral and the Leaning Tower of Pisa, designated a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
Italian winemakers have produced exceptional wines in various regions for centuries and fall is the time to enjoy the busy Italian wine harvest. Consider adding a day tour to your holiday like our small group Montalcino wine tour, which combines exploring Tuscan hill towns with wine tastings. There is a lot to uncover and experience in 12 hours in Tuscany.
Discover the variety of dishes served in the different areas of the country. Italy’s diverse regional cuisine is a culinary delight made even better during the harvest season when fresh fruit and vegetables add to the tastes at your table.
Culture and History
Exploring Italy introduces you to the rich culture and traditions of our country. There are local festivals, like the annual festivals every fall to mark the harvest season. Enjoy the work of artisans and indulge in seasonal foods and wines, for example if you travel with Avventure Bellissime through Veneto to Bassano del Grappa during autumn.
This year there are celebrations across the country to mark the 450th birthday of Dante, whose renowned epic poem the Divine Comedy has been recited by Italians since he wrote it in the 1300s. There is also much to learn and understand about this predominantly Catholic country, notably Pope Francis, the much loved new head of the Church’s 1.2 billion Catholic Christians, and the great artwork commissioned and maintained by the Church like the ceiling in the Vatican’s breathtaking Sistine Chapel.
Everywhere you go there is history to learn, from the ruins of Pompeii to the canals of Venice to the attractions of ancient Rome.
