Day 6: Captain's Farewell Dinner

Captain's Farewell Dinner on LA BELLA VITA - main course

Captain's Farewell Dinner - LA BELLA VITAOur final evening on La Bella Vita began with aperitivi in the saloon, followed by the Captain's Farewell Dinner in the dining room.

The Mantua-themed menu consisted of antipasto all'Italiana, tortelli filled with pumpkin, duck breast Modenese, Parmeggiano Reggiano with grapes and walnuts, a "farewell cake," and three wines (including a creamy Otello Nero di Lambrusco).


After the meal, La Bella Vita's crew posed for pictures.
