Visit the family’s vineyards, dine at their restaurants and take prime seats at Teatro del Silenzio on this exclusive once-in-a-lifetime short break

Once a year, Italian opera legend Andrea Bocelli returns to the small town of Lajatico, where he was born, to host a spectacular open-air concert. This unique event takes place in the stunning amphitheatre of the Teatro del Silenzio - the Theatre of Silence - built especially for the Maestro's summer concerts.

This very special concert in the rolling Tuscan hills will be the highlight of your four-night stay in Tuscany, where you'll have plenty of time to take in its many sights, including Florence's Renaissance Architecture and the mediaeval town of Volterra.

Throughout the trip, you'll have the opportunity to meet a member of the Bocelli family during wine tasting at the Bocelli family's restaurant in Lajatico, where you'll also visit a museum dedicated to Andrea and his work. There's a trip to the Tuscan Riviera included too, where you'll enjoy a seafood lunch at the family's stylish Alpemare Beach Club.

Another highlight will be a tour of the Bocelli Vineyards, nestled in the scenic hills of the Val D'Era. You'll get a chance to taste some of the excellent wines produced here during your lunch at the family restaurant, where Maestro Bocelli's nephew Alessio Bocelli will tell you all about his family's wine making traditions.

Throughout your trip you'll be staying at the four-star Albergo Celide in Lucca. The hotel is located right by Lucca's old city walls and has an excellent restaurant with an à la carte menu specialising in fresh seafood where you'll dine one evening.
