Virtual Tour of Venice with Cheltenham Arts Society, March 20th 10:45am

Cheltenham Arts Society invites Corinium Members to an hour long virtual tour of Venice. Luisella Romeo has been a Venice Tourist Guide since 2000. Her knowledge of her home city and enthusiasm for its many distinctive districts should make this an interesting and visually appealing walk through two of the lesser known areas.

So why not join Luisella, perhaps with a cappuccino in hand, and sit back in the comfort of your own home to enjoy part of Venice in the spring. There is a charge of £5 for this event. Please see the March newsletter for details.
