Milan sightseeing and a rustic welcome dinner Italian-style
The UGA Chamber Choir singers, friends and family explored Italy's fashion and design capital Milan both on their own and with local guide Esther today. Highlights included an inside visit of the Duomo, the Scala Museum and short recital in the lobby. After leaving the city, the group headed to the picturesque town of Nazzano where a welcome dinner awaited them at the Agriturismo Belvedere. Home-made quiche, pizza and a lemon risotto were served on the outside terrace and the choir thanked the cooks with an impromptu performance Monteverdi's "Cantate domino". Daniel E. commented on dinner: "Everything I had tonight was my favorite."
