Easter weekend in Montepulciano: tips for a wonderful holiday
28 March 2018
Spring has finally come even in Tuscany, and we want to suggest a series of events and activities to join in during Easter weekend on 1st and 2nd April.
Montepulciano is the flawless destination to welcome this season and spend a holiday that is relaxing, engaging and exciting at the same time.
Easter Festival, the best event for classical music fansEaster Festival, came to its fourth edition, it will take place from March 29th to April 15th in different venues, located in Montepulciano and in other Tuscan towns.
This is a festival dedicated to classical music, born in 2015 from an idea by Eleonora Contucci, an opera singer belonging to one of the oldest families in Montepulciano.
The Festival allows you to completely dip yourself in the wonders of Tuscany, since the concerts take place in stunning venues surrounded by natural masterpieces. We suggest to attend these concerts to have the chance to listen to excellent musicians performing in historical palaces and prestigious theaters, not only during the Easter weekend but also afterwards.
The festival begins on March 29th in Rome with a preview concert (only by invitation), on 31st March the concert will be in Sarteano at the Teatro Comunale degli Arrischianti (with a program including music by Bach, Handel and Vivaldi, among others), then on Sunday Easter in Chiusi, at the Concattedrale di San Secondiano and on Monday 2nd April at the Chiesa del Gesù in Montepulciano.
