The Festival del Sole kicks off in the Napa Valley on 18 July. An extension of the Tuscan Sun Festival in Cortona, it combines classical music concerts with food and wine, until 25 July ( festivaldelsole.com ). Further east, the sun is set to disappear temporarily. The longest total solar eclipse of the 21st century will throw a slice of Asia into darkness on 22 July. And on 26 July, Shangri-La is set to open its first resort in the Maldives. Villingili Resort and Spa will comprise luxurious over-water and treehouse villas, as well as a holistic spa ( shangri-la.com ).
