Choose this tour if you’re curious about Giuseppe Verdi and want to hear anecdotes about his life!
Our tour takes you to various places that became important for the composer’s career. We start at Roncole Verdi, visiting his birthplace and the Church of St Michael the Archangel, which is where he was baptized and where he played the pipe organ for the first time. Then we head to Busseto to admire its precious theatre dedicated to Giuseppe Verdi. We also visit the Barezzi Museum, where he studied music and spent his youth. Before we move on, you cannot leave Busseto without tasting local products in one of the oldest and most famous little shops in the area. We finish with a visit to Giuseppe Verdi’s villa in Villanova sull’Arda, which is impressive for the wealth of personal objects it contains, and for its extensive and romantic garden. If you take this tour in October, you’ll be able to watch a Verdi opera during the Verdi Festival at the Regio Theatre.
