O Because these days, tourism is about offering an experience. Parents prefer to give their kids a life experience where learning and fun are combined, and they can interact with people from different countries.

Where?

OLucca: a city full of history surrounded by its majestic walls, one of the pearls of beautiful Tuscany. Its history and traditions are a perfect blend of art, music, stunning scenery and delicious food.

OVisiting Lucca during the Virtuoso & Belcanto Festival is the perfect opportunity to enjoy all these elements: our Festival celebrates the beauty and joy of music in one of the most fascinating and characteristic cities of Tuscany. Lucca is the birthplace of Puccini, Boccherini, Catalani and many other composers and musicians, and here Paganini began his career as a “virtuoso”. Beauty is in every corner of Lucca: wonderful churches and works of art, beautiful gardens and villas, beautiful scenery … and a very old culinary tradition with wines of the highest quality and one of the best olive oils from Italy.
