Antonio Vivaldi was a virtuoso violinist, composer, and teacher. A Venetian all his life, he traveled widely but always returned to his beloved native city. His music epitomizes the Italian Baroque like no other composer. We invite you to travel in June 2013 with the Harrisburg Symphony and Travel Professionals Inc. to Vivaldi’s Venice, where you’ll enjoy deluxe accommodations in Vivaldi’s home, now transformed into a modern, upscale hotel known as Locanda Vivaldi, in the heart of the city. Join Maestro Stuart Malina and his wife, Marty, as they take in the inimitable sights, sounds and tastes of Italy.
Venice is one of Europe’s top travel cities, a beautiful, romantic destination with many attractions. It is one of the most alluring cities in the world, renowned for its stunning architecture, its mysterious passageways, and of course, the canals. Its narrow, traffic-free streets along the winding canals make for great walking. It is the type of place where, as a visitor, you’ll welcome getting lost (as you inevitably will). Relax in the Piazza San Marco, take a moonlit gondola ride or taste the original Bellini cocktail at Harry’s Bar. Or just wander. No matter where you go, you’ll find history, beauty and romance.
