Information not currently available.
Set out with your guide by elegant and comfortable Mercedes Benz vehicle. Your destination is Lucca, and you will travel through panoramic Tuscan countryside to reach it.
Begin your tour of Lucca to find out more about its historic attractions and hidden gems. Don't miss the Piazza dell' Anfiteatro, the Church of San Michele in Foro, the famous City Wall of Lucca. You will have the opportunity to visit Puccini's local apartment and to learn more about his life and career during your three hours in Lucca.
Next, you're headed to a 'secret' location in Tuscany -- Torre del Lago. This is where you'll find the Puccini Villa and Puccini Theatre. Look around outside; then, continue to the exclusive Bocelli Alpemare Beach Club. This is a new beach establishment located in the stunning town of Forte dei Marmi and is run by the Bocelli Family.
Upon your arrival, the concierge will greet you, assist you with check in and send you off to be pampered.
Head to the Alpemare Restaurant and be seated for a delicious four-course lunch served by Chef Dario Leonardi, with a selection of delicious Azienda Bocelli wine. The experience begins with a guided wine tasting of wines direct from the Bocelli family farmhouse located in Lajatico in the Tuscan countryside. Next up is a seafood appetizer. An English-speaking guide explains the history of the Bocelli family relative to the production of wine and their connection with Tuscan countryside and seaside. Lunch includes a first course, second course with a side dish, dessert, wine, coffee and water, and is focused around typical Tuscan seafood.
After lunch, enjoy some time to relax on the beach of the Alpemare Beach Club in the beautiful Versilia. Keep an eye out in case you're lucky enough to encounter celebrity guests or even Andrea Bocelli himself.
Leaving the beach, your final stop is at Pisa. At the Piazza dei Miracoli, you will have time to shop or enjoy a gelato at a café (at your own expense), and to admire from the outside the beautiful Baptistery and the world-famous Leaning Tower.
Return to the port of Livorno in time to board your ship.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring your swimsuit, a towel, sunscreen and a hat.
