What becomes a legend most? Find out when you dine with Sophia Loren and Andrea Bocelli on this once-in-a-lifetime trip to Italy and Switzerland.
Your journey begins with three luxurious nights at Monteverdi Tuscany, an ultra-exclusive boutique hotel in the medieval village of Castiglioncello del Trinoro. Unwind with decadent treatments in the world-class spa; savor your choice of cooking lessons or a chef’s table meal in the private culinary academy; and drink in views of Val d’Orcia, a historic winemaking valley and UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll also be treated to a tour of one of the world’s most revered private car collections.
You will then travel to the lovely, ancient Tuscan town of Lajatico for a once-in-a-lifetime event: Andrea Bocelli’s Teatro del Silenzio. The stunning open-air amphitheater opens only once a year, for the world famous tenor to perform with special guests. The experience is simply magical. You will get to meet the Maestro in person after the concert, when you break bread over a sumptuous Tuscan feast with Bocelli, family, and friends in his beautiful country villa.
Your trip concludes on an indescribably high note: private dinner with none other than Sophia Loren in Geneva, Switzerland. The iconic beauty is not only an Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe Award winner, she’s an art collector and a bestselling cookbook author too. It’s hard to imagine a more perfect companion for an experience that’s sure to be legendary.
