Bella Italia

The Perfect Mosaic of Tapestry, Truffles, Silk and Alpacas 

in Tuscany, Umbria and Lake Como

We're doing it again!   May 10 - 26, 2020

We listened and added another day!

Who knew?  While the mention of Italy may elicit visions of exquisite wine, decadent cuisine, magnificent art and legendary vistas, the country has a history rich in textiles.  The tradition of weaving on hand looms dates back hundreds of years and has evolved into a modern industry adapting designs from the Renaissance.  The town of Como, situated on the shores of idyllic Lake Como, is considered to be the heart of silk history and production in Italy.  It's relationship with silk dates back more than 4,000 years and is now Italy's largest silk producer and home to Educational Silk Museum.  There is even a working alpaca farm in the serene Umbrian counrtyside.  From hands- on fiber arts workshops to wine and olive oil tasting; visiting medieval walled villages to optional private cooking classes, we will immerse ourselves in the best of everything! Come and experience the creative side of Italy that most don't even know about.


May 10 - 26, 2020 - We listened to the feedback and added an extra day!
