Italian Riviera Concert Tours

Perform music in the towns and villages of the Italian Riviera

The Italian Riviera is a crescent-shaped strip of Mediterranean coastline stretching from the French border to Tuscany. At the end of the 19th Century this area became a magnet for British aristocracy who sought out its warm winter climate.  Nowadays visitors flock to the area in the summer months enticed by the sandy beaches, stunning scenery, and cultural hot-spots.

After visiting Genoa, Richard Wagner said that Paris and London were dull by comparison. He took the sounds of the Ligurian sea and transformed them into the music that opens Das Rheingold. Edward Elgar was inspired to compose In the South after holidaying in Alassio in 1904.


The ritzy resorts and medieval towns of the Italian Riviera offer enchanting venues both to visit and perform. The warm climate allows for outdoor performances in the evenings and exploration and relaxation during the day. Your groups will be warmly welcomed by appreciative audiences in venues such as San Remo, Bordighera, Alassio, Albenga and Ospedaletto.


Sandy beaches, exciting water parks, Europe’s largest aquarium and chic resorts all vie for your attention in this wonderful and relatively quiet part of Italy.

Concert performance venues in the Italian Riviera

This stretch of the ligurian coast is heavenly! Colourful seaside villages, panoramic views, the blue of the Mediterranean Sea and stunning beaches with perfect squares for concerts thrown into the mix! There are also plenty of churches for choirs with a sacred program and even little amphitheatre. What more could anyone want!

This purpose built concert venue has regular concerts throughout the summer which are advertised enthusiastically by the local comune and well attended. A concert here can combine well with the various central square and church concerts along the coast. 

Ospedaletto Auditorium Comunale

Modern amphitheatre with sea view

Finale Ligure is one of many charming little towns that are found all along this dramatic stretch of the ligurian coast. With a backdrop of mountains and glorious sea views, there are plenty of town squares that are perfect for memorable summertime concerts.

Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, Finale Ligure

Pretty square in coastal town

This church is situated in the centre of San Remo where the very welcoming priest encourages his large parish to come to concerts. Music performed here must be sacred. There are plenty of other churches to choose from along the coast.
