Every year, FAI UK organizes two exclusive journeys to Italy or to the UK for our supporters. Our tours include luncheons, dinners, and intimate cocktail parties in the homes of major figures of Italian and British society. These exclusive itineraries allow travelers the opportunity to experience places of great historic and artistic significance, many of which are rarely accessible to the public. Please contact our office if you wish to receive information about future tours.
We hope you will be able to join us on our next voyage!
A visit to Naples, guided by writer and journalist Gaia Servadio, trustee of FAI UK. This will include Verdi’s “La Traviata” at the San Carlo opera house, lunch at San Michele on Capri as guests of its owner William Parente, chairman of FAI UK, and a visit to writer Alex Munthe’s Villa San Michele, whose garden is reputed to be among the finest in the Mediterranean. There will be dinners in two stunning Neapolitan private houses.
