The Puccini Festival
Whether you love opera, outdoor performances, the work of Giacomo Puccini, classical music and/or central Italy, you’ll be inspired by the tour that we have put together to visit Lucca and Torre del Lago. Join us to pay homage to the composer and writer of some of the world’s most famous operas including Madame Butterfly, La Fanciulla del West, La Rondine and La Bohème.
This year, which will be the 63rd festival (the only one in the world dedicated exclusively to Puccini), we have secured premier tickets for our clients to have exceptional seats at two performances: La Bohème and Turandot.
In between performances you’ll be enjoying the medieval town of Lucca, which was Puccini’s place of birth. Here we’ll take you to see the house where he was born and its piano on which he composed Turandot. However, Lucca is equally famous for its picturesque charm with its elegant loggias, blind arcades and twisted columns. The churches are stunning and the shopping is good – lingerie and silk underwear are Lucchese specialities.
