Festival Itinerary to Include:
  • Festival performance of Verdi Requiem with professional soloists and orchestra as part of Lake Como's official summer music festival:

    A city with an ancient musical history... A lake that has always been a place of refuge to "get out of one's skin"... A music festival born of the lake, whose water is the symbol of living and moving culture... A culture which, like water, flows, gathers, communicates, grows... The distinguishing characteristic of the Festival Como Città della Musica lies in its magnificent mixture of musical genres. The summer of 2017 brings the 10th edition of the Festival, ever growing in ambition and inititative, and in the development of an audience as large and diverse as the art it presents.

  • Guided tour of Milan, including visits to Teatro alla Scala and the Milan Duomo
  • Visit to Isola Bella on Lake Maggiore and its stunning Palazzo Borromeo
  • Guided cruise of Lake Como with free time at the charming town of Bellagio
