A note from Nancy about this trip:
“Sant’ Angelo in Vado is a hidden gem and a true taste of old Europe. Everywhere you turn, you see castles, gardens, hills and beautiful architecture. The village is enchanting, and the moment you step outside the front door of our historic hotel, you encounter Italian family life in full bloom. You can walk to the cafe and have espresso or gelato, go shopping for a new dress, browse fresh flowers at the market, or sample fresh pastries at the bakery around the corner. You’ll hear the sound of voices echoing on the old stone walls as you stroll down the lane, because the American Opera School is just around the corner, with windows open to catch the evening breeze. You can catch the show for free, and meet the incredibly talented American students who study there. On market day, along with finding great bargains on purses, shoes, flowers and cheeses, you’ll hear the opera students walking around town, singing together in groups, and practicing for the opening curtain. Last year, one of the couples in my class was serenaded by them for their anniversary! Tours to San Marino, to coastal Cartoceto, to ancient castles, and painting every day is a real treat. But my favorite experience each year is walking around the village at night after dinner, seeing the families pushing strollers and walking their dogs, greeting one another, eating sweets together, and laughing. The children play after dark, it’s safe, it’s magical, and it’s like stepping back to another time. I would love to share every moment of this journey with you, and I hope you’ll give yourself this chance to see that family life is still so very precious in Sant’ Angelo in Vado.”
