OVERVIEW 

Map Italy Knitting Tour with Beth Brown-ReinselExplore the beauty and charm of northern Italy on this 12-day tour of Milan, Chiavenna, and Venice.

Start in business first Milan, the country’s fashion and financial capital. Stroll through the historic city and participate in a unique fashion workshop. Enjoy the beauty of the lake region, visit Como and glimpse into the history of this silk region.

Next settle into the charming alpine town of Chiavenna nestled among the Italian Alps with dramatic views in all directions. Taste treats await in a hands-on Italian cooking class. Mix wonderful knitting sessions led by Beth with times to explore more of this region including Switzerland’s St. Moritz. Then on to Venice, the Queen of the Adriatic, and a city like no other, it must be experienced to be believed.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Milan - Milan, city, capital of Milano province and of the region of Lombard, northern Italy. It is the leading financial centre and the most prosperous manufacturing and commercial city of Italy.
  • Lake Como - Lake Como, locally known as Lago di Como or Lario, is the third largest Italian lake (after Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore). Located at the foot of the Alps, Lake Como offers some of the most romantic and picturesque scenery in Italy. Its characteristic inverted-Y shape comes from the melting of glaciers combined with the erosive action of the Adda river.
  • Venice - Venice, city, major seaport, and capital of both the province of Venezia and the region of Veneto, northern Italy. An island city, it was once the centre of a maritime republic. It was the greatest seaport in late medieval Europe and the continent’s commercial and cultural link to Asia. Venice is unique environmentally, architecturally, and historically, and in its days as a republic the city was styled la Serenissima, “the most serene” or “sublime”.

BETH BROWN-REINSEL

Beth Brown-Reinsel has been teaching historic and traditional knitting workshops, nationally and internationally, for over 30 years. Her focus has been to bridge the gap from 19th century knitting, fashion, and culture to present-day practices, making a connection to women, their daily lives, and their handwork. She has traveled to over 20 countries to research textiles, visiting museums to examine artifacts, gaining inspiration for the development of new knitting patterns and workshops. Her books, DVDs, and workshops explore historic knitting from many cultures, including the UK, Scandinavia, and the Baltic. Beth so enjoys working with knitters that she holds two retreats each year in Vermont beyond her busy teaching schedule. Her work can be seen on her website (www.KnittingTraditions.com) and on her Patreon project (www.Patreon.com/BethBrownReinsel).
