Travel with Piedmont Opera to Asheville via motor coach for a mountain getaway!

We’ll board our motorcoach for a field trip to the Thomas Wolfe Memorial where we'll see a film about the life and times of Thomas Wolfe. As the website states, “Considered by many to be one of the giants of 20th Century American Literature, Thomas Wolfe immortalized his childhood home in his epic autobiographical novel, ‘Look Homeward, Angel.’ Wolfe’s colorful portrayal of his family, his hometown of Asheville, North Carolina, and the Old Kentucky Home boarding house earned the historic Victorian home a place as one of American Literature’s most famous landmarks.”

 

We will check into the Village Hotel at Antler Village on the grounds of the Biltmore Estate where we are a short stroll from the shopsrestaurants, and Winery of Antler Hill Village. Enjoy a complimentary wine tasting or do some shopping. If you are interested in touring the Biltmore House, we will make arrangements for you. There is an additional cost. Our group recently toured the Estate at Christmas and found that extensive walking is required.

 

After a rest, we will enjoy a four-course dinner at the Bistro Café at Antler Village.

 

After a comfortable night and a hearty breakfast, we will depart for the immersive experience Leonardo da Vinci – 500 Years of Genius, the world’s most comprehensive and thrilling Leonardo da Vinci experience. Inventor, artist, scientist, engineer, sculptor, anatomist, musician, architect, philosopher—Leonardo da Vinci was all of these things. His brilliance and many extraordinary achievements are brought at Biltmore.

 

We will then ride to the grand Omni Grove Park Inn. This beautiful hotel has captured the hearts of many travelers who sought the peace and tranquility of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Grove Park Inn has withstood time to secure a permanent spot as a landmark in history. During a guided tour by Beth Bell (Mariedith’s mom!), we will have an opportunity to view the Inn’s historical displays and have a lunch on your own before we head to Winston-Salem. Please note that Grove Park issues bus passes based on their occupancy.

 

We are working with some guest speakers for this adventure. More details to follow. Cost for double occupancy is $600 per person. A minimum of 18 people required to make the trip go! Sign up by emailing here.
