Pomellato has been renowned for unique, exquisitely crafted jewelry since 1967, so it’s no surprise that the Milanese firm dreamed up this exquisite experience for lovers of art, design and culture—and Italy. Venice and Milan will be your home for five nights and six days of immersion in architecture, cinema, painting, history and, yes, jewelry.

During your four days at the Venice Biennale, you’ll attend lavish private events, walk red carpets and sit next to the stars at screenings at the 2020 Venice Film Festival. And your special access to the Biennale Architettura will bring you to the cutting edge of international architecture, as well as behind-the-scenes access to world-famous museums and palaces.

During two days in Milan, you’ll enjoy exclusive entrée to collections and cultural sites, including a guide who will share insights on the lives and work of great artists from Verdi to da Vinci. A visit to Milan must include couture, so a stop at Giorgio Armani’s estate is on the agenda, as is a visit to your hosts, Pomellato, who will welcome you into the Milanese workshop where master goldsmiths handcraft their signature pieces—surely the crowning jewel on this outstanding adventure.
