The Tour of the Seven Churches

After spending a day in the midst of the culture of Florence, what could be nicer than a relaxing tour of the hills on the outskirts of town? "The Tour of the Seven Churches" is on stage at Impruneta (only 10 kilometres from the city centre) from June 17th to 28th: a cultural event that offers the chance to listen to good music as well as discover some of our little known artistic and cultural treasures. Every corner, however small, of the countryside around Impruneta is full of unexpected surprises and, hidden amid the cypress trees and framed by the silvery leaves of the olive groves, the tiny churches that host the twelve musical appointments in June are typical examples. The concerts are at the Basilica of S. Maria at Impruneta, the Church of S. Martino at Bagnolo, the Parish Church of the Sacrocuore at Tavarnuzze, the Church of S. Miniato at Quintole, the Church of S. Lorenzeo alle Rose, the Church of S. Gersolé, the Church of S. Paolo alla Croce at Colleramole, the Church of Pozzolatico. The programme includes concerts of classical music, ancient Indian music, popular ethnic music and 20th century music.
