This evening we depart for one of the Top Highlights of our trip... the Andrea Bocelli concert that takes place at Teatro del Silenzio, an amphitheater in Lajatico, Italy, the birthplace of Bocelli. The amphitheater was built by the local government at the request of Bocelli. He performs a concert here each summer. The amphitheater sits unused the remainder of the year; however, the stage area is flooded and becomes a “lake” in which sculptures are exhibited. The 14th Annual Andrea Bocelli Teatro Del Silenzio Concert, the exclusive event that takes place every year on the hills of Lajatico (Pisa), Maestro Bocelli’s hometown concert titled "Ali di libertà", scheduled for Thursday, July 25, 2019 at 8:30 pm is sold out. The artistic direction is once again by Luca Tommassini a visionary guru artist and former choreographer of X Factor, collaborator of Madonna and Michael Jackson concerts. This year the most beloved Tenor in the world will be joined, by his son Matteo Bocelli, rising star of international pop, from the extraordinary success obtained with the song "Fall on me", duet interpreted together with his father. The best of the best is in the program: a multi-sensory experience that will reinvent opera by offering the greatest composers, the most beloved songs and the most popular “classics”, presented within an innovative format that will symbolically take the audience by the hand, within spectacular moving sets that are, currently, unparalleled. It is a memorable journey, to be taken – as always – alongside Andrea Bocelli, through the places where he was born and where many of his dearest loved ones still reside. It’s an intimate concert and the best place to see Andrea Bocelli Live! After the concert, we will enjoy an authentic Italian dinner at a local restaurant. Overnight Siena.

This evening we depart for one of the Top Highlights of our trip... the Andrea Bocelli concert that takes place at Teatro del Silenzio, an amphitheater in Lajatico, Italy, the birthplace of Bocelli. The amphitheater was built by the local government at the request of Bocelli. He performs a concert here each summer. The amphitheater sits unused the remainder of the year; however, the stage area is flooded and becomes a “lake” in which sculptures are exhibited. The 14th Annual Andrea Bocelli Teatro Del Silenzio Concert, the exclusive event that takes place every year on the hills of Lajatico (Pisa), Maestro Bocelli’s hometown concert titled "Ali di libertà", scheduled for Thursday, July 25, 2019 at 8:30 pm is sold out. The artistic direction is once again by Luca Tommassini a visionary guru artist and former choreographer of X Factor, collaborator of Madonna and Michael Jackson concerts. This year the most beloved Tenor in the world will be joined, by his son Matteo Bocelli, rising star of international pop, from the extraordinary success obtained with the song "Fall on me", duet interpreted together with his father. Teatro del Silenzio 2019 Andrea Bocelli Concert: http://citysoundmilano.com/en/ The best of the best is in the program: a multi-sensory experience that will reinvent opera by offering the greatest composers, the most beloved songs and the most popular “classics”, presented within an innovative format that will symbolically take the audience by the hand, within spectacular moving sets that are, currently, unparalleled. It is a memorable journey, to be taken – as always – alongside Andrea Bocelli, through the places where he was born and where many of his dearest loved ones still reside. It’s an intimate concert and the best place to see Andrea Bocelli Live! After the concert, we will enjoy an authentic Italian dinner at a local restaurant. Overnight Siena.

It is famous for being the largest waterfall in the world, during the wet season. The African people who live around the falls call it Mosi-oa-Tunya which means "smoke that thunders". The Zambezi River plummets over a cliff and into the Boiling Pot before flowing through a series of gorges. The Famous Devil’s Pool, a natural infinity pool, is on the edge of a sheer drop will be an optional activity and not for anyone afraid of heights.

This magnificent resort is located on the private Motu (island) of Tevairoa offering spectacular views of Mount Otemanu.‎ CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO: https://youtu.be/L1A8AK2Mro8 ABOUT THE FRENCH POLYNESIA - SOCIETY ISLANDS... French Polynesia covers over two million square miles of the South Pacific Ocean and is comprised of 118 islands spread over five great archipelagos. Many islands are crowned with jagged peaks while others appear to barely float above the breaking waves. It’s the kind of place where the rich and famous come to play and hedonistic honeymoon fantasies are realized. Adventures are plentiful in these archipelagos that are scattered over an area as big as Europe. Easier to travel to than you might imagine, As far south of the equator as Hawaii is north, Tahiti is halfway between California and Australia, on the same side of the International Date Line as North America, and in the same time zone as Hawaii. The three archipelagos most sought by visitors are the Society Islands, comprised of Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Huahine, Raiatea and Taha’a. Unlike any other properties in the world, the luxury hotels and resorts of the French Polynesia offer a perfect combination of experience, service, dramatic views, cuisine, ambiance, and posh accommodations. MOOREA Moorea is a magical island. The mountains rise up high above the sea, only to disappear again into the shallow lagoon. Waterfalls plummet down cliffs and towering pinnacles rise high above you. This is a beauty you will never forget. On the island there are both white and black sand beaches, which is quite unique among the Society Islands. Come and experience the magic of Moorea for yourself! ABOUT BORA BORA Bora Bora – Unquestionably the most mythical of the Pacific islands remains the island of all dreams. So much has been written about Bora Bora, and yet it is hard to find the right words to describe the magic that emanates from this island. Seen from the air, the view has been compared to that of "a tiny emerald in a setting of turquoise, encircled by a sheltering necklace of sparkling pearls". The airport, built by US forces in 1942, is located on a palm fringed motu about 20 minutes by boat from the main village of Vaitape. The view of the main island from the airport is truly breathtaking, and as you travel across the spectacular lagoon you will soon understand why it is the main area of attraction for most visitors. As with All International Fun Happenings Trips... I am working with a local Tahitian tour company- so our group will fully immerse ourselves into the local culture and experience a side French Polynesia- that tourists rarely see!
