Tenors, Todi and Titignano A wonderful week of singing in the grounds of our own private estate in Umbria. The 10th century village of Titignano has been lovingly restored offering us a private chapel, wine cellar, Baroque style dining room, comfortable accommodation and swimming pool. The panoramic hilltop views across rolling hills and vineyards are to die for. A very magical setting for a joyous singing holiday.
A typical itinerary on this acapella singing holiday in Umbria
We reach our hotel, in a magical hilltop setting and on our own private estate, in time for a stroll and a short singing session together before dinner. Enjoy a celebratory meal made with delicious local ingredients in the baronial dining room.
Following a delicious breakfast, we start the day with morning songs. Faith will lead a series of breathing and physical exercises, exploring world songs, loosening up and getting to know one another. It’s a joyous experience. Spend the afternoon relaxing by the pool or take a gentle walk in the delightful countryside.
Singing in our private chapel & visit to Todi
Building on our new repertoire, we sing in the beautiful chapel in the grounds of Titignano. It is a very special environment, offering total focus and immersion into song and Italian culture. After lunch, we take a trip to nearby Todi, a lovely hilltop town overlooking the Tiber. If there’s time, we may pop in to the nearby Teatro della Concordia in Monte Castello di Vibio, a two hundred year old theatre and the smallest in the world! A few more songs before supper!
Morning songs that fill our souls and lift the spirits. After a lunch of local produce we are treated to a wine and food tasting in Titignano’s very own wine cellars and oil mills. Sample olive oil, red, white and desert wine all produced on the estate. There will also be cold meats, truffles, cheese and honey to try and buy! In the evening we hope to sing with a local choir, enjoying new friendships and some local fizz before supper.
Enjoy a full day out in Orvieto, a small medieval city sitting high on volcanic rock, visible for miles around. We will visit on market day and wander the maze of tiny streets that come up for air at Piazzo Duomo. Why not sing a few bars in the beautiful cathedral or the Torre del Moro with the best views of the city. Below ground there is a network of tunnels which you can explore (optional). On our return, we will enjoy one last sing before our final supper.
We will spend our last day enjoying the grounds in and around Titignano, singing in the morning in the chapel or among the olive groves or vines – Faith and the group can decide on the day! Enjoy an afternoon relaxing before a final, celebratory sing song before supper.
We depart for Rome Fiumicino airport after breakfast.
