Here in Tuscany - Day Three
What a busy day!
After breakfast we started with a rehearsal and then walked down the high street to the gelateria for an ice cream before the chance for another swim in the rooftop pool.
Following our three course lunch we set off for the Chianti Sculpture Park. Surrounded by amazing vineyards and olive groves, the Sculpture Park was set up in 2004 celebrating the mix of art and nature. Artists from 5 continents have produced works especially for the park and we enjoyed wandering through the woodlands admiring the sculptures.
Driving to Cortona for the first concert of the tour, we were grateful for the air-conditioned coach as we watched a spectacular electrical storm around the valley. Cortona is a hilltop town, unreachable by coach so we had to walk up a very steep hill to reach the church of St Domenico.
Most of the singers enjoyed the local pizza for dinner before the concert This was our first concert on tour since 2019 and was enjoyed by a very appreciative audience of locals and visitors to the area
