Amalfi Coast Music & Arts Festival Plus Southern Italy and Sicily
Monday, July 2, 2018 to Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Two components for one great trip!

Now you can register for the entire tour or only for the Southern Italy tour.

Join concert pianist Paul Barnes, professor of music at the Glenn Korff School of Music at UNL for his performance in July at the Amalfi Coast Music and Arts Festival. Then explore Southern Italy and Sicily on a remarkable food and wine tour. Register for the entire tour or for ONLY the Southern Italy and Sicily tour.

The Amalfi Coast Music and Arts Festival component of the tour is three days of a Chautauqua-style experiment in the arts on an international level. It brings together performing artists, visual artists, writers and poets, students, teachers and music aficionados. You can attend rehearsals, master classes and pre-concert lectures. You can also take advantage of the many educational offerings at the festival such as art courses, Italian language classes, cooking lessons, and excursions to various sites in the Amalfi Coast area.

The tour of Southern Italy and Sicily is an 11-day visit. 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. You will visit remarkable historical and cultural sites, as well as sample the superb food and wine of the region.
