In this specific trip, dedicated to the exploration of modern art and gastronomy, Venice will open its borders to the guests as a stage for the constant battle between the eternal and the temporary, the old and the new. Under the guidance of a prominent art critic, the participants will have the opportunity to see the most notable works from the Venice Biennale, and, relying on their own perception, will be able to appreciate the ways in which artists react to the modern era of change. The gastronomical programme of the tour will allow clients to get to know local cuisine in its many different forms: from the classical trattoria to the experimental set menu brought to you by Michelin Star chefs.
