Andrea Bocelli Tuscany 2018: Group Tour
Andrea Bocelli LIVE in Tuscany 2018
Performance date: 28th July 2018
Tour departure date: 25th July 2018
This year sees the thirteenth edition of the Bocelli-hosted event in his home town of Lajatico. The exclusive annual event promises to be an exceptional show in 2018 which will be dedicated to the representation of the opera Andrea Chénier by Umberto Giordano. Returning to his greatest passion, Andrea Chenier was the first opera that Bocelli heard, learnt and loved and from which he sang and recorded his first aria at the age of eight, and that is still listened to today. Andrea Bocelli will be accompanied by a symphonic orchestra, choir and an artistic cast of international fame. Combined with a stay in Florence and visits to some of Tuscany’s most lauded sights, this is a tour not to miss.
This lovely tour, based in the heart of southern Tuscany, includes a ticket to this wonderful open-air event together with a six-day tour of Tuscany including Siena, San Gimignano and Lucca.
Please note there is a significant walk (approximately 1km) to the concert auditorium so this tour is not suitable for those with walking difficulties.
We offer a flexible, tailor-made service with flights, accommodation in Florence, Siena or the surrounding area, transfers or car hire with tickets to see Andrea Bocelli in ‘Cirque’.

Mr & Mrs Mutlow
Barbara – the tour guide was simple outstanding – the best we have ever had (and we have done many escorted holidays). Great itineray, well organsied etc. RB were first rate in all respects. timely, accurate, effective.
The trip to Tuscany and your tour guide were excellent, the length of days and the towns you picked for our trip were spot on! Excellent knowledge, very professional, approachable and altogether a very nice gentleman at RB.
To see Bocelli in his home village concert was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and the other trips wer very enjoyable too. Everything worked as expected! The courier – Trisha – was exceptionally good – caring, helpful, knowledgable.
The whole experience was completely stress free and we were with fellow travellers who were like minded and added to our enjoyment of the holiday. Our holiday itinerary went according to plan, and the experience was enhanced by the services of an exceptional tour manager.
