Join the Odyssey!
Come to the Veneto region of Northern Italy to express your creative side. Explore the rich cultural heritage of the Venetians through the work of their most influential Renaissance architect, Palladio and record what you see in sketches and paintings under the guidance of artist Liz Steel.
Over 5 days we will visit some of the most famous Palladian villas with their wealth of classical artworks and manicured gardens. We will explore the city of Vicenza home of Palladio and some of the most stunning palaces in Italy as well as visit some of the lesser known hill towns always characterised by the ubiquitous Venetian campanile (bell tower). The tour will include accommodation, the best of local produce and traditional cuisine as well as tastings of fine local wines.
You will come away with greater knowledge of the significance of Venetian culture beyond the City of Venice and a passion to keep recording your adventures in your sketchbook creating a uniquely personal record of your travels.
