The Andrea Bocelli Summer Experience gives guests the opportunity to get a real authentic taste of Tuscany, Bocelli's home, through its sites and sounds and most notably a mesmerising open air performance by Bocelli himself.
You will fly directly to Pisa Airport, where you will be met by your Topflight tour guide and directed to your coach. You will be transferred to the beautiful Hotel Croce di Malta in Montecatini Terme, where you will stay for the duration of your time in Tuscany. You will be given time to check in before meeting again with the tour leader who will talk you through the itinerary for the week. Here, you will get a chance to meet others on the tour and enjoy an aperitif before a fantastic 3 course welcome meal in the hotel.
After breakfast, you will be invited to accompany the group leader on a short tour to familiarise yourself with the beautiful town of Montecatini, a quaint and authentically Tuscan spa town, with a peaceful pinewood park right in its centre.
There will then be some free time to allow you to have some lunch and if you feel like continuing the exploration, your guide will lead you to the lovely Medieval village of Montecatini Alto via the historic funicular which is payable locally.
You will return to your hotel to spend the evening as you wish.
After breakfast this morning, you will meet with your tour guide and board a coach which will take you from Montecatini to Florence, the capital of Tuscany. Here you will meet with a city tour guide who will showcase the cultural metropolis that is Florence.
The Cathedral of Florence dominates the city scape and the beauty is sure to impress you. You will visit some of the city’s most interesting sights on your guided tour and afterwards, you will have some time to explore the area on your own time. Perhaps you’d like to explore the beautiful shops, enjoy an espresso or aperitif or savour a classic Italian lunch, it’s up to you.
Your coach will return you to your hotel and you will spend the evening at your leisure.
Spend the morning however you wish but make sure to enjoy a good hearty breakfast at your hotel. Today is going to be a great one!
You will leave Montecatini in the afternoon and be transferred to the idyllic and utterly beautiful Tuscan countryside. En route to the concert destination, guests will be treated to a visit to a wonderful Tuscan ‘Agriturismo’ or farmhouse. Immerse yourself in Tuscan culinary traditions as you taste some local delicacies, sampling the produce and taking in the glorious countryside.
Afterwards, you will be brought to the concert venue. This is the show you have been waiting for - the magnificent tenor Andrea Bocelli opens his home-town’s doors for an incredibly unique experience. The theatre here holds only a couple of concerts by Bocelli in the summer and then falls silent for the rest of the year, giving it its name ‘Teatro del Silenzio’ or the Theatre of Silence. Be a part of this atmospheric and jaw-droppingly beautiful performance while enjoying the magic of the Tuscan countryside and its surrounding enchanting hills. The combination of such natural beauty and Bocelli’s music and voice will be an absolutely treasured experience.
After what is sure to be an incredibly moving show, your coach will return back to your hotel. As this is a late transfer, you will be provided with some light refreshments on the way back to your hotel.
Note: Guests can opt to upgrade their concert tickets from standard to a Category 3, Prima Poltrona ticket for €105. Simply contact our team to arrange.
After yesterday, a long but exhilarating day, you will spend today at your leisure, relaxing and enjoying Montecatini at your own pace. Perhaps you will choose to make the most of your hotel’s excellent facilities and take it easy by the pool or even indulge in a luxurious spa treatment. However you wish to spend your time is up to you.
This morning, after breakfast, your guide will escort you to the coach where you will be transferred to the fascinating walled city of Lucca. Here, a city guide will meet with you and take you on a walking tour of this gorgeous Tuscan gem. You’ll take in the fabulous piazzas and the beautiful buildings and monuments of this walled town which is also home to the famous composer Giacomo Puccini. After your walking tour, you will have some free time to explore Lucca for yourself.
In the afternoon, the coach will transfer you to the iconic city of Pisa. Known throughout the world for its spectacular square, the ’Piazza dei Miracoli’ or Miracle Square, you’ll find the Leaning Tower dominating. You will have some free time for photos and a little exploration here and the coach will then transfer you back to your hotel in time to spend the evening however you like.
You have another day to take it easy and enjoy the slower pace of ‘la dolce vita’. Why not sample some of the town’s local trattorias perhaps, or stroll through the town’s park stopping for an aperitif along the way.
If you still have a thirst for more exploration, the train station is within easy walking distance and from the hotel and from here, you can take the train to many of Tuscany's beautiful cities and towns.
To celebrate the last night of your stay, you will enjoy a 3 course evening meal with the tour group at the hotel’s wonderful restaurant this evening.
After breakfast you will check out of your hotel and board the coach which will bring you to the airport for your return flight home.
