A Musical Journey of Historical Gardens from Lisbon to Rome
A rare voyage that combines sublime chamber music with the pleasure of cruising to some of the finest gardens in the Mediterranean Sea. This glorious spring cruise features exclusive recitals in historic venues on several islands and in coastal towns of this fabled region. As we sail the coast of Iberia, to the islands of Mallorca, Sardinia, and Sicily, and on to Southern Italy, we encounter lush, beautifully landscaped gardens in spectacular Mediterranean settings. We will visit the Generalife Gardens near the Alhambra; the oasis of Palmeral of Elche, a UNESCO World Heritage site; Valencia's Jardin Botanico; and the Orto Botanico Cagliari --which will open its doors on Saturday exclusively for the American Horticultural Society group.
