This city, made famous by Shakespeare, will be a short stop-over on the way to our final destination. On the first afternoon, we’ll catch up on rest and survey the immediate area around the hotel. On the following day, we will have a walking tour and then visit the Museo di Castelvecchio, an old castle made into a beautiful museum by architect Carlo Scarpa. The museum is a perfect spot for photography: shadows, cleverly arranged stones and old doors abound. There will also be some free time in this very quaint town to explore on your own.
Soprabolzano (or Oberbozen in German)
We transfer from Verona to Soprabolzano on Saturday. I think an introductory cable car ride will offer a good overview of the area, without a word of explanation.
During the following three days, we will have photography lessons taught by Matteo de Stefano. Each lesson will have a different focus: street, architecture and nature. Each class will be about 4 hours long, after which we will have lunch. Then you will be free to pursue more photography, relax at the pool, or take a hike. Later in the day we’ll meet for dinner and discuss everyone’s activities and have a photographic critique.
This trip is not packed with activities and therefore offers lots of time for relaxation, so you will really have time to have a vacation in a gorgeous spot of the world.
