Le desiate acque di Claudio Monteverdi


Monteverdi Festival embarks on a new music cruise on the Po River, tracing the steps of Monteverdi’s life and connecting his beloved towns, Cremona, Mantua and Venice. This time, we will reach Venice, via the Brenta River, that Venetians consider an extension of the Grand Canal. We will enjoy a luxury trip loved by Venetian nobility and by many artists. Concerts on the deck and at the berth, on a cruise to repeat Monteverdi’s journey, but also to enjoy dazzling landscapes rich of culture, history and art, and to discover the beautiful Villa Pisani.
