Next summer is on my mind. Considering just doing one competition, but one that would have us in line for the Gran Premio if we won:
There is a competition in Gorizia, Italy that has the original date: July 5-8.
Competition website: http://www.seghizzi.it/
I'm looking at a 12-15 day trip; trips longer than that are very demanding on the traveller and normally cost-prohibitive.
The Gorizia competition would give us some wonderful places to visit in Italy and surrounding areas.
One possibility: Fly into Rome, travel to Venice, travel to Competition, then to Florence, then back to Rome.
I'm also very interested in: flying into Munich (if flights are cheap or same price), travelling to Salzburg, travelling to Competition in Gorizia (July 5-8), 2 nights in Venice, 2-3 Florence, then to Rome for a night or 2 before we leave.
I'm interested to see what the tour company might recommend based on past experience.
If possible, I'm going to try to schedule a concert in St. Mark's Cathedral (Venice).
