Your journey into the world of great Maestro Andrea Bocelli and his beloved Tuscany begins when you disembark from your cruise ship. Whether at the port of Livorno or the port of La Spezia, a private English-speaking driver will be there to meet you and to welcome you to your Bocelli Overnight Shore Excursion.
Your day will start with a Volterra tour; your driver will take you in a comfortable and elegant private Mercedes-Benz to this beautiful city where you will wander through narrow streets and squares, glimpsing the traces of the Etruscan, Roman and Medieval eras all around that make it so magnificent. It is in this town that you will visit the well-preserved Roman Theatre, one of the most beautiful Roman amphitheaters in the entire country. You cannot leave Volterra unless you first visit an alabaster laboratory. Alabaster is the material on which much of the city’s craftsmanship is based; during your visit you will be able to see artisans bring their wonderful creations to life and, if you wish, buy an original handmade souvenir.
The shore excursion proceeds to Lajatico, the hometown of Maestro Andrea Bocelli, and the first place you will visit is the magnificent open-air amphitheater where the tenor holds his annual concert every summer, hosting more than 10000 people from all over the world: the Teatro del Silenzio.
