Welcome to the new issue of Virtuoso Traveler!
Classic destinations will always, deservedly, hold sway on our life lists. But sometimes the best trips involve a twist. Enter the August issue of Virtuoso Traveler, which features fresh ways to experience our favorite places. In Italy, go beyond Rome, Florence, and Venice to tour Puglia’s whitewashed hill towns. Find your own private Hawaii on the less-visited isle of Lanai. Go deep into Alaska’s interior and fly-fish from a remote wilderness lodge. Set out on a safari in Scotland. Savor not just the art, but surprises like Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches in Vienna’s top museums. See Machu Picchu through the eyes of an indigenous shaman. And in Mexico, sip homegrown syrahs and chardonnays in northern Baja’s burgeoning wine country. Happy (unexpected and less-trodden) trails.
