Henry James - Retracing His Footsteps in Italy

Travel to Italy to discover the sensuous and aesthetic world that Henry James explored and wrote about for decades, beginning in 1869 when he crossed the frontier from Switzerland into the Lake Como region. For him, this journey had “a delightful flavor of romance.” In 1909 James collected his travel writings in Italian Hours, which remains a delightful guide to the country and its art.We will see museums, monuments, squares, churches, and landscapes that the writer adored, but we will also spend time learning about the great Italian artists that he wrote about so eloquently.
