Touring Italy through its music
Italy is renowned worldwide not only for its precious heritage of historical monuments and for the natural beauty of its landscapes, but also for being the homeland of bel canto. In fact, many famous composers such as Verdi, Puccini and Rossini were born in Italy, as well as internationally renowned artists such as Pavarotti and Bocelli. Music-themed tourism, which also involves opera and dance, is increasingly popular among tourists: this is why Platinum by Albatravel Group organises tours, trips and itineraries to discover the places that best represent music in Italy, creating customised offers that meet the requirements of small and large groups, as well as couples, families and of those travelling alone.
When it comes to the staging of shows, Platinum by Albatravel Group offers a booking service for concerts, opera and ballet in the theatres that host the most important events and festivals of the season, such as the Verona Arena, Teatro La Fenice in Venice or Teatro del Silenzio (Theatre of Silence) in Lajatico, in the province of Pisa. Our offer also includes guided tours to the many historic theatres in our country, such as Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma (Rome Opera House), Teatro Massimo Bellini in Catania or Teatro Petruzzelli in Bari.
Music lovers will also enjoy one of our tours we organise in cities or in the most interesting regions in Italy, for example in Emilia Romagna, known since the late Renaissance for its excellent artists and the native region of personalities such as Giuseppe Verdi Ottorino Respighi and Girolamo Frescobaldi, or in Cremona, where you can visit the Stradivari Museum and the municipal palace that houses a precious collection of ancient tools and the city theatre dedicated to the great opera composer Amilcare Ponchielli.
Our offers also include thematic tours especially for those who want to learn about the life and works of a specific artist, such as the musical tour in Venice focused on the great baroque music composer AntonioVivaldi, or in Bergamo, the city of Gaetano Donizetti where you can visit his birthplace and the museum and theatre dedicated to him.
With a trip to Geova, instead, you can explore the places that most inspired one of the greatest personalities of contemporary Italian music, the Italian songwriter and poet Fabrizio De André. But we have even more to offer: in fact, we also organise itineraries dedicated to local folklore, for example in Puglia, a land of music and evocative traditional dances, such as the “pizzica” and the “tarantella”.
Jazz enthusiasts, instead, will be pleased to know that we collaborate with one of the leading associations involved in the organisation of musical events in Italy. Founded in 1988, it operates in the field of jazz and contemporary music, organising concerts, art exhibitions, conferences and training workshops with the participation of major international artists, offering visitors a journey through the theatres of the various regions of Italy and hosting more than 100 concerts in 40 different cities.
For these and any other kind of musical tours that you may want to take part in while staying in Italy, Platinum by Albatravel Group constantly pays attention to every detail of its services, offering solutions customised each time according to the specific demands and interests of its customers.
