The Places

The Tuscan city of Siena has a long history and is the site of one of the earliest great Gothic churches of the region, instantly recognisable from the polychrome marble and sculptures of its facade. From Siena our tour goes to Pisa, where, inevitably, the famous leaning tower and its adjacent buildings are the centre of our attention. The tour ends with a visit to Nervi, a resort that is now part of the city of Genoa, and the Villa Luxoro, with its
collections of objets d'art.

The Music

Music for the tour is by Beethoven, with his Piano Concerto No. 1, completed in 1795, and his first numbered Piano Sonata in F Minor, one of a set of three, published in 1796 and dedicated to his teacher, Joseph Haydn.
