Buongiorno!

Join WWNO New Orleans Public Radio, and a like-minded group of curious travelers for a journey rich in the art, architecture, food, wine, and music of la bella Italia.

Italy owns an astonishing thirty percent of the world’s cultural heritage. Fine arts, architecture, food, wine and design are some of the best known treasures, but for many, it is the music of Italy’s great composers that they hold most dear. Together we will explore ancient Rome and Tuscan hill towns, sip fine wines and sample mouth-watering cheeses. Our custom journey also includes an in-depth look at a new project to protect the city of Venice from the threat of rising seas and frequent flooding.
