Itinerary

  • Day 1-5 - Teatro San Carlo, Naples & a visit to La Mortella

    Staying at the Grand Hotel Santa Lucia in the historical heart of Naples, we will spend two days exploring the city with visits to its two great museums. The Capodimonte houses an important collection of paintings and sculptures once owned by the mother of Charles VII, Elisabeth Farnese; and the National Archaeological Museum has an unrivalled collection of Greek and Roman antiquities, and items from Pompeii and Herculaneum. We will also visit the cathedral of San Gennaro and see works by Caravaggio. We will cross the Bay of Naples by hydrofoil to spend a day on the beautiful island of Ischia. Sir William Walton OM and his Argentinian wife, Susana, lived on the island from the 1950s until their deaths. Walton composed many works at their villa, La Mortella, overlooking the Bay of Naples. Susana Walton created the extensive garden, and today it is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s most ravishing. We will tour the island, have lunch at the hotel San Montano, from which there are spectacular views of the Bay of Naples, and have a guided tour of the garden at La Mortella. Our visit there will end with a concert by a young musician given as part of the Walton Foundation’s summer concert series, Incontri Musicali. These concerts ensure that Walton’s musical legacy lives on today.
