Music Tours to Tuscany

  • Italy’s most beautiful towns and cities
  • Home to Michelangelo’s ‘David’
  • Good audiences all year round

Tuscany’s towns and cities are amongst the loveliest in Europe while its rich and fertile landscape draws many visitors. The regional capital, Florence, is probably Italy’s most beautiful and fashionable city. Its unsurpassed combination of magnificent art and architecture, stylish designer boutiques, and bustling streets and cafés, appeals to young people from all over the world. The city is dominated by Brunelleschi’s Dome and the tower of the Palazzo Vecchio and lies on the river Arno (straddled by the quaint Ponte Vecchio). From here, excursions can be made to Tuscany’s most stunning cities and towns including Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa and Lucca, while Viareggio on Tuscany’s popular coast makes an interesting and contrasting day.

Where to stay

We recommend Montecatini, a fashionable and relaxed spa town in the beautiful Tuscan countryside about 40 km from Florence, for our groups. It is a relaxed and spacious antidote to the heat and bustle of Florence with a lovely main square, surrounded by cafés and stylish boutiques, with floodlit fountains at night. The old town, reached by funicular railway, is worth a visit for its medieval charm and lovely views. We use a variety of well-kept 3 star hotels in Montecatini, some with an outdoor swimming pool, all within 10-minute walk from the lively town centre.

Concerts

Tuscany offers an exceptional choice of venues, whatever time of year you travel. During the summer months, our groups can generally take part in one of the festivals taking place, such as the gardens of the Villa Bottini in Lucca and the Jazz Festival in Camaiore. Other towns where concerts can be arranged include Pistoia, in its basilica and in the cathedral, and on the town square of Barga. High quality sacred choirs will particularly appreciate the opportunity of performing on the steps of Florence’s magnificent Duomo. In Montecatini itself, concert series are held at the beautiful spas, such as Tettuccio spa.
