Van Vleck House & Gardens invites guests on a virtual tour of the legendary gardens of Italy’s Amalfi Coast and Capri, with noted travel author and photographer Robert I.C. Fisher as the guide. An editor at Fodor’s for nearly 20 years and the author of three books on Italy, including Close to Paradise: The Gardens of Naples, Capri and the Amalfi Coast, Fisher will transport guests to Capri, Sorrento and Positano via an illustrated slide lecture, focusing on the architecture and gardens to be found along the Amalfi Coast.
A reception with appetizers and Italian wine pairings in the Van Vleck House will follow.
