Want to enjoy an amazing gig and a holiday at the same time? Check out these incredible concert packages, in three of Europe’s most beautiful cities.
Here are three top choices for gigs with a difference!
Open Air Concert at Teatro Greco
1st July 2011
You don’t get much more romantic than an evening with Andrea Bocelli in enchanting Italy. The concert takes place in the Teatro Greco, an absolutely breathtaking outdoor Greek amphitheater, in what was undoubtedly the most beautiful city in the world, Siracusa.
Once a part of Greece and home to Archimedes, Plato and Livy, Siracusa was taken over by Romans and is now a seductive and elegant Italian city that may have faded a little, but still offers the exquisite Italian experience. There are superb hotels, lively bars and restaurants to be found among the ancient monuments, serving up some of the most delicious cuisine in Europe.
If you want to treat someone special to an evening of emotive music, followed by a magical break in Italy, then this is the package for you.
