Poltronissima Gold ticket for Andrea Bocelli concert at Marostica
A full day in Romeo & Juliet’s Verona
Ferrara and Padova – two underrated Italian gems
In the spectacular outdoor venue of the Palazzo Castello in the lovely town of Marostica, Andrea Bocelli will perform a concert in two parts – the first half dedicated to opera, the second to the music of his widespread “crossover” repertoire. It is his only concert in Italy scheduled for 2020 so far, apart from the Teatro del Silenzio event in Tuscany and promises to be a spectacular concert in a magical setting. Add to this an itinerary taking in some of the highlights of the Veneto region and it is a tour not to miss.

AB concert was excellent with well thought out ground arrangements to get there, very good seats. Hotel- very clean ,bedrooms needed updating. good bathrooms, lift was small and slow which caused some issues. Reception staff were slow and very rigid in their approach. Thermal pool was excellent.
