How would you like to embark on a mesmerizing ten-day journey through the enchanting landscapes of Italy? Travel with me, KJazz host Jerry Sharell, and a like-minded group of fellow jazz lovers and immerse yourself in the harmonious blend of art, food, wine, and the soulful melodies of jazz as we traverse the cultural tapestry of "Bella Italia." Follow in the illustrious footsteps of Verdi, Michelangelo, and Da Vinci, tracing their legacies through the cobblestone streets of Tuscany and Umbria, where jazz notes mingle with the whispers of history.

Indulge in exclusive private tours, unraveling the mysteries of painting and sculpture in central Italy, while soaking in the rhythmic ambiance during private jazz performances. Delight your senses with the finest culinary offerings as we venture to the heart of Italy's gastronomic delights, sampling exquisite wines, artisanal olive oils, and delectable cheeses.

But the journey doesn't stop there. Join us for an unforgettable cooking class, where culinary artistry is reminiscent of musical improvisation, and explore vibrant markets bursting with color and life. Traverse the picturesque landscapes of Italy, where jazz harmonies resonate against the backdrop of serene waters and verdant hills. Ascend the towering hill towns of central Italy and lose yourself in the timeless allure of ancient Rome, where every stone holds a story waiting to be told.

Join KJazz in celebrating the transcendent power of the arts in "Bella Italia," a journey which will be infused with the magic of jazz! Spaces are limited, so reserve your place today and embark on a journey of a lifetime.

I hope to see you in Italy this fall!
