A MAGICAL EVENING OF INSPIRING MUSIC
DAY 1 –Tue 26.07: Arrival
Transfer by private coach to the hotel in the late afternoon and check-in.
DAY 2 – Wed 27.07: Florence
After breakfast reach the Montecatini rail station on foot/or on your own bus and take the local train to Florence: the capital of Tuscany. This art and cultural metropolis is a “must” for all travellers to Tuscany. The Cathedral of Florence dominates the cityscape and together with its Campanile and baptistery forms one of the most magnificent works of architectural art on earth. Visit the most famous sights of the historic district on a guided city tour (entrance tickets can be procured, upon request). Following the tour enjoy some free time to admire the jewellery shops on the Ponte Vecchio or sip an espresso before returning to the hotel.
Day 3 – Thu 28.07: The Andrea Bocelli event
Breakfast at the hotel rest of the Morning at leisure and Lunch at leisure! Leave Montecatini in the afternoon for the Tuscan countryside, where a historic estate awaits you to sample an extensive range of local products. The tasting will fuel you with the right energy to then enjoy the main event: the Andrea Bocelli performance at the Theater of Silence. The innovative project, established in 2006, unites art and culture with its open-air amphitheatre in the heart of the Tuscan hills, near Bocelli’s hometown of Lajatico. The theatre draws its name from the fact that it hosts just one concert each summer, before falling silent for the rest of the year. The event enables the extraordinary opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Tuscan countryside while listening to Bocelli’s voice live. Please note that guests must do a couple of kilometres walking to reach the stage and that they will return to their hotels very late, following the event.
Day 4 –Fri 29.07: Lunch near Lucca and visit
Morning at leisure to recover from the late night. Around noon take your coach to the surrounding hill and enjoy a typical lunch before reaching Lucca to discover the city with a pleasant walking tour. Lucca, also known as the city of 100 churches, is the birthplace of Puccini and harbours many interesting sights, including the San Marino Cathedral. With the tour you will get to know the impressive monuments of this city, which is also known as the open-air museum of Tuscany.
Day 5 – Sat 30.07: Departure
All categories of concert tickets can be booked through Michelangelo!
Hotel accomodation in 3*or 4* hotel in the Montecatini area
In 2006 the famous Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli initiated an innovative project blending art, culture and nature with the construction of an open air Amphitheatre in the heart of the Tuscan hills near Lajatico, his hometown near Volterra.
The theatre hosts a single concert by Bocelli each summer, before reverting back to its silent form for the rest of the year (giving rise to the name Teatro del Silenzio – the Theatre of Silence). A sculpture in the form of a human face is located in the centre of the structure. Designed by the Polish sculptor Igor Mitoraj for the performance of the opera Manon Lescaut, it was gifted to the theatre foundation afterwards.
The stage and audience seating areas are completely dismantled when not in use for the Festival and the theatre reverts to its natural silent state, becoming an artificial lake once more.
Bocelli’s concert is an extraordinary way to enjoy the beauty of the Tuscan countryside, amidst enchanting hills and tall cypress trees, whilst being serenaded by the music and his incredible voice.
