With stunning photos and enchanting stories, travel blogger and tour guide Donna Fenice will take us on tour of northern Italy’s most fascinating gardens. We will visit Italy’s Lake District, a region that has captivated artists, writers and movie directors for centuries, as well as the lush vineyards of Veneto. Whether driven by historical context, bitter rivalries, powerful ambitions, homesickness, or changing fads in garden design, these gardens reveal a fantastical range of styles. From a baroque extravaganza on Lake Maggiore, to a romantic English garden on Lake Como, to a formal Renaissance garden in Verona, to the Versailles-inspired garden of a Venetian Doge (chief magistrate of Venice or Genoa in the medieval and renaissance periods), these gardens are as rich and varied as Italy itself. Buon viaggio!
What would an Italian-themed event be without food? The TBG Cafe will be set up in the lobby with pasta, salad and Italian soda for sale.
