The hidden villas, soaring architecture and intricate details of the Venetian landscape make this a perfect place to immerse yourself in the life of
‘la bella figura’…
La bella figura ’ is a philosophy which strikes to the very heart of Italian society. It is a way of life, celebrating the beautiful and elegant; it drives the aesthetic perfection of Italian design, from the sensual curve of a Ferrari, to the effortless glamour and taste that makes the culture of Italy so magnetic. We have sourced the very best of experiences Italy has to offer so that you may become ensconced in ‘la bella figura’ yourself. Pack your driving gloves and your Hepburnesque sunglasses – this will truly be a memorable and opulent adventure.
- Concorso d’Eleganza - Our guests are exclusively invited to one of Italy’s most glamorous and sought-after events, held on the shores of world-renowned Lake Como. The Concorso d’Eleganza is a three-day event, exhibiting some of the world’s most exotic, historic and exceptional cars.
- Osteria Francescana - Highly-awarded chef Massimo Bottura is known as an artist in food, citing conceptualists and musicians as his main inspirations, and serving visually stunning, yet eminently edible creations for an exclusive number of guests..
- Touring - This part of Italy is truly intoxicating, home to dozens of historic villages, palatial villas and scenery that will take your breath away. Bellagio, known as the ‘pearl of the lake’, is renowned for its natural beauty and unparalleled romance amid stone lanes, cobbled staircases and magnificent old villas.
- Modena, home to Luciano Pavarotti, some of Italy’s most cutting-edge design community and the house of Ferrari: their factory complex, the Fiorano Circuit and the superb Ferrari Museum.
- Bologna - a maze of medieval towers and canals, boasting the world’s oldest university (founded in 1088) and a hedonistic devotion to music, theatre and cuisine.
- Venice – the captivating, heady waterbound city crisscrossed by canals. We forgo the beaten tourist path and uncover the real Venice, even more beguiling and incredible than you can imagine.
Tour departs late May 2013.
