Tour Southern Italy and Sicily
Monday, July 2, 2018 to Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Explore Southern Italy and Sicily on a remarkable food and wine tour. Join concert pianist Paul Barnes, professor of music at the Glenn Korff School of Music at UNL, for his Amalfi Coast Music and Art Festival performance. The Amalfi Coast Music and Arts Festival is celebrating its 23rd year this coming July with a month of concerts performed at a variety of venues in the Amalfi coast region. The festival is based in Maiori, Italy, and concerts are performed at sites such as Ravello, Agerola, and Tramonti.

Following our three day visit to the Music Festival, we will embark on an 11 day visit to Southern Italy and Sicily. Most international tourists visit northern Italy and sites such as Milan, Venice and Florence. This trip offers a unique view of Southern Italy, an area of this Mediterranean country that is much different from the northern environs. We will visit remarkable historical and cultural sites as well as sample the superb food and wine of the region. Join us!
