Milan, Stresa and the Borromean Islands
Discover the Lake District of Northern Italy, where sparkling waters mirror the lush green hills and craggy slopes of the Alpine foothills. Base yourself in the town of Stresa, by Lake Maggiore and spend your days exploring the best of the region. On Isola San Giulio, see the Romansesque basilica, that seems to effortlessly float on water. Glide across Lake Como and admire picture-perfect villages that adorn the shore. Experience the diversity of the Borromean Islands; from opulent estates, to quiet fishermen islets. Learn the secrets of northern Italian cuisine and encounter the wonder that is Milan; from Leonardo’s “The Last Supper,” to options that include an excursion to the Duomo, La Scala's museum and tours exploring the fashion industry of the city. This small-group program features seven nights’ accommodations, an extensive meal plan, including wine with dinner, and a series of lectures to enhance your understanding of why it remains one of the sought after destinations in Southern Europe.
