Professor Beltrami will also conduct a day tour of the Palladian Churches of Venice ending with a boat ride through the Venetian Lagoon to the Villa Malcontenta. The tour includes visits to the Palazzo Te in Mantua by Guilo Romano, the Villa Nani with its Tiepolo frescos, and the Brioni cemetery by architect Carlo Scarpa. Great hotels and amazing food and wine are all included! Organized in conjunction with Elaine Hirschl Ellis of ArtsandCraftsTours.com.
