Prosecco Country Arte e vino between the Marca Gioiosa and the Dolomites

6 April 2022

6 days from £2,250pp

When marvelling at the joys and beauty of what has become known as Prosecco Country, it is too easy to fall under its spell – from the delicate gothic arcades and the majestic hill-top views.  It is part of the Veneto which is famous for its wine but which should be even better known for its little visited, stunning towns which were home to a number of important artists
  • View the exquisite Villa Barbaro produced by two of the most famous artists of the 16th century, Palladio and Veronese
  • Explore the delightful town of Feltre, a jewel of the 16th century with a stunning scenery 
  • Visit the enchanting town of Conegliano and the art of its famous son Cima da Conegliano 
  • Visit a famous winery and enjoy the Prosecco wine which has made the region world famous
This Art Pursuits Abroad study tour will take us to the rolling, vineyard-covered hills of the Valdobbiadene, place of origin of the extremely drinkable light and sparkling prosecco. From our base in the charming town of Conegliano — home of Bellini’s pupil Giambattista Cima da Conegliano — we will explore the beautiful towns and historic borghi of the region. Handsome Serravalle impresses with its painted Renaissance façades and a stunning late Titian altarpiece; Belluno delights with works of Sebastiano Ricci, the originator of Venetian 18th-century painting. Possagno is dominated by the temple and pure white plaster model gallery of Antonio Canova, while picturesque Asolo inspired Robert Browning. Finally, high up in the Dolomites, Pieve di Cadore proudly displays the original patent of nobility of Titian, the town’s own prince of painters. A little-known area full of unexpected artistic highlights and accompanied by fine wines and delicious regional cuisine.
