Tour of the rural area of the Pisan Hills

One peculiarity of Tuscany is its medieval towns full of narrow crooked lanes, archways, irregular stairways, stone buildings. Discover Peccioli, formerly a castle and later turned into a proper town, and the nearby Teatro del Silenzio, the world famous arena created by Andrea Bocelli in his birthtown Lajatico for yearly concerts that gathers thousands of fans.




The medieval town Peccioli and the Etruscan Museum

You meet our local experienced guide at an agreed meeting point. Our tour starts with the visit to a very authentic medieval village called Peccioli, a destination out of the typical touristy routes. The village is a typical example of Italian small village with charming squares, scenic country landscapes and unexpected art treasures. The visit includes a climb up a panoramic hilltop garden and a guided visit to a charming Etruscan museum, recently opened in the mazy basements of a historical palace in town. It is an opportunity to learn a lot about the usages and the history of this original Pre-Roman population through several recent finds belonging to a rural sacred temple.
After visiting the village and its fascinating attractions, you follow the guide to a panoramic agriturismo, just 15 minutes driving from Peccioli, for a delicious lunch based on local delicacies.

The Teatro del Silenzio in Lajatico and wine tasting at the winery Bocelli

After lunch we visit a spectacular open air arena called Teatro del Silenzio, right by Lajatico, the birthtown of Andrea Bocelli. The theater hosts the yearly concert of maestro Bocelli, who founded it in 2006. You will learn how the concerts are arranged every year as the guide explains the history of the whole project and you will understand the reasons why the event attracts thousands of people every year. Its location is in fact in a breathtaking setting of wheat fields on rolling hills with the Etruscan town Volterra in the background and the atmosphere created during the concert is a unique experience!
The last stop of the tour is at the cellar of the brother of Andrea Bocelli, as his family owns a historical wine property. Here you will visit the cellar, get to know the winemaking techniques and finally taste their excellent wines.

Our day tour to the rural area of the Pisan Hills takes about 6 hours. Transportation to the locations is not included.

If you need collection with our chauffeured car, van or minibus, please specify this in the booking form.
