September 13 to 24, 2022

Accompany expert on European politics Roberto D’Alimonte and trail guide Peter Watson on this colorful autumnal walk through Italy’s exquisite Lake District, which combines the scenery of in the northern Alpine mountains with the wine growing regions of Lombardy region in the south. 

By land and lake. Walk amid verdant pastures (different walk options are available on most days), hike along mountain ridges and sail across sparkling lakes. The march of history. Lap up the long colorful history of the region—from the Roman poet Catullus to Charlemagne to Clooney—on visits to luxurious palazzi, storied castles, island sanctuaries and churches with Renaissance masterpieces. Food for thought. Savor local breads, cheeses, meats, olive oils and wine at daily trailside picnic lunches, and continue the feasting during leisurely dinners at charming trattorias at day’s end.
