Program #21055ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Verdi 200
Celebrate the 200th birthday of Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi, leading Italian composer of the late 19th Century. Led by professional opera artists, examine his operas including “La traviata” and “Aida,” and enjoy a concert by the Hart family.

Effervescent Operetta
Like champagne, the music is bubbly and intoxicating. Study famous operettas including “Die Fledermaus” and “The Merry Widow” as well as brilliant but less well known works such as “La belle Hélène” and a few rarities, all reflecting their times.

The Courage to Create Beauty
Beautiful music, art and photography express and inspire creativity. What are 2 steps leading to scientific insights and spiritual epiphanies? Creativity births new ideas that can challenge the establishment. Galileo, Einstein and Gandhi had courage to do so.
