Lake Como, Milan, Pavia Hills, Old Bergamo and to choose Venice, Cinque Terre, Bologna, Mantova.

 
 

Milan, the commercial capital of Italy, will be the starting point for visiting the many iconic places that only in Italy can you find.

Lakes, hills, villages and cities will be the privileged subjects of this Italy Photo Tour. Whatever your favorite genre in these intense days you will practice with most of the existing photographic genres. You will be able to alternate between landscape photographs, street photography, architecture and portraits.
Then, in the evening, a festival of lights and reflections will grab your attention until you choose the best shot, set up the tripod in front of you and take the perfect shot, the one you've been looking for a long time or even better, the one you never imagined even existed.

Don't worry you will never be alone. The tutor who will guide you will know how to advise you on what kind of photography you are most inclined to practice, and together you will decide which subjects it will be most useful for you to look for, in order to take more and more exciting and evocative shots.

It will be a complete 360-degree experience! Far from the crowds that invade the most touristy places you will get to know the real Italian beauties, the ones that are not mentioned in tourist guides.

You will taste typical local dishes accompanied by wines from artisanal wineries that you can visit. Time will slow down to let you savor every moment of these extraordinary days of relaxation and fun in the best way possible. 

Italy Photo Tour will be conducted in English language

 
 

ITINERARY

 
ARRIVAL: We will pick you up at the Milan airports around midday.
MILAN TOUR: We will take you around the city to get to know the most characteristic neighborhoods. Piazza Duomo, Brera, Isola, City Life, Savona and in the evening the Navigli where you can sip a tasty aperitif while waiting to take pictures at sunset.
COMO LAKE: Full day to visit most of the villages overlooking the lake. Menaggio, Tremezzo, Cernobbio, Bellagio, Briennio, Nesso, Lenno, Argegno, Varenna. We will use the ferry to go from one shore to the other.
OLD BERGAMO: This is the ancient part of the city of Bergamo. Here the walls that surrounded the old village perched on the hill are still intact. Inside, medieval buildings line the typical stone streets, and the whole evokes a magical atmosphere of yesteryear.
PAVESE HILLS: The morphology of these hills give rise to wonderful, unique landscapes. From their ridges one can admire the most striking views that span 360 degrees. They are also famous places for the typical dishes that are served with extraordinary wines from the rows of vines grown on these very slopes.
TO CHOOSE: On this day you can choose one of the destinations up to 3 hours' drive away from Milan that you can visit in a day, namely Venice (2,3h), Cinque Terre (3h), Bologna (2h), and Mantua (1,3h). If you wish and by booking in time, it is possible to stay in Cinque Terre extra days at a cost of €75.00 per day per person (minimum 2 people).
EDITING SESSION: This is the day dedicated to processing the shots taken during the previous days. You will learn how to select images to get a collection of shots ready to be displayed in an exhibition or to publish a book.
DEPARTURE: We will drop-off at the Milan airports around midday.
 

The duration of the Italy Photo Tour extends from Sunday afternoon (4pm) to the morning of the following Sunday (10am) for a total of 8 days and 7 nights. As above is just an outline schedule to let you know how the week is organized, which will surely be different from the previous and the next. So many factors come into play: weather, light, length of days at different times of the year. Therefore, to ensure the best conditions for the workshop to take place, the schedule of days may be subject to change.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Perfectly familiar with the locations of the itineraries, Mino Di Vita took us to areas hidden from other tourists at the right time of day to make us appreciate the atmosphere and inspire us to take extraordinary photographs. Thanks to his advice te We also benefited from his deep photographic knowledge and generous advice on technique-he taught us things about our cameras that we did not know! In addition, he was a friendly and fun host and guide, which enriched our overall experience.

Audrey Davis

Mino's artistic skills are incredible. I learned how to consciously photograph in order to get a publication-ready photo project from my shots. He also taught me to look differently at what is in front of me and avoid taking mundane shots. It was all very constructive and memorable was the patience of this tutor who was very attentive to my needs by adapting his lessons to my level of photographic preparation.

James Miller

Lee Williams

I had the privilege of participating in Italy Photo Tour with Mino Di Vita. It was an extraordinary experience not only from a human point of view, but also from a technical point of view. Mino is a very knowledgeable tutor who made sure that we were always at the right time in the right place.

4IS ANALYSIS OF THE SHOTS TAKEN SCHEDULED?
Yes, at the end of each day there are sessions for the analysis of the shots taken during the day to evaluate the individual improvements achieved in the various shooting techniques and creative composition . Obviously for those who are interested and consistent with their remaining energy.
5WHAT CAN BE DONE IN CASE OF BAD WEATHER?
Not all inclement weather conditions are a limitation for shooting. Variable weather can often provide far better lighting and environmental conditions than clear weather. In any case, alternative locations are provided that can be used in cases of bad weather such that the planned activities cannot be carried out.

Each group is composed of a maximum number of 4 participants to allow, in addition to more elastic mobility, the best possible interaction between the tutor and each of the members.
