August 3 | Volterra & Andrea Bocelli Concert
In the morning you will visit the beautiful center of Volterra. Late in the afternoon we reach the small town of Lajatico, where we will enjoy the amazing concert of Andrea Bocelli at the wonderful outdoor “Theatre of Silence” in the heart of the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The theatre hosts a single concert by Bocelli once in summer, while remaining silent the rest of the year (hence the name Teatro del Silenzio - Theatre of Silence). The stage as well as the platforms for the audience are completely dismantled during the time when they are not used and the theatre gets back to its natural silent state turning into an artificial lake. Bocelli’s concert is an extraordinary experience to enjoy the beauty of the Tuscan countryside while listening to a superb performance. (B)
August 4 | Lucca & Cooking Class
Lucca is also known as the city of 100 churches and being the birthplace of Puccini it offers many interesting sights. On a guided tour we will explore the city that is considered to be Tuscany’s open-air museum. We will also discover the secrets of the Italian and Tuscan cuisine during a hands-on cooking class in the afternoon. After the class, we will get together with the other participants to enjoy our own home-made meal. Buon appetito! (B.L)
