Start the walking tour in the Piazza dei Miracoli, with its impressive Cathedral, the Baptistery and, of course, the world-famous Leaning Tower (entrance optional). After time to have lunch on your own, go to the coast and enjoy the summer breeze in Pietrasanta, at the foothills of the Apuan Alps. The town hosted artists like Michelangelo, drawn to its excellent local marble. Dinner that night.
- Jul. 27, 2019 – Andrea Bocelli Event – Morning at leisure, but remember to have a good breakfast at the hotel, as this will be a long day! Leave Montecatini in the afternoon to reach the Tuscany countryside, where a typical estate awaits you to sample an extensive range of local products. Afterwards, attend the Andrea Bocelli event in Lajatico, the hometown of the tenor. The unique concert takes place at the Theater of Silence: an innovative open-air amphitheatre created in 2006, with the aim of uniting art, culture and the beauty of the Tuscan hills. Bocelli takes the stage here only once or twice each summer, and then the area remains silent and peaceful for the rest of the year. It is about a 300 yard walk downhill from where the bus drops you off to the concert venue and your seats. At the end of the concert it’s about a 300 yard walk uphill back to the bus. At the venue there are stands selling food and drink, yes including wine for purchase. The seats are in category 6 – located in the Tribuna A &/B section. These are the unassigned seats. If you are interested in upgrades, we can get those prices for you, just ask your agent.
