In an interview with the UK’s Telegraph Travel section famed Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli spoke generously of his time in Israel. In response to the question “Which was your best holiday,” he responded:

“A country that has really resonated with me and I was really impressed with was Israel. I found that the whole country had a very special atmosphere. I was there to perform but it was one of the few places that I’ve visited over the years that I had some free time to explore, and I was hugely impressed by all the religious history there.”

Bocelli last visited Israel in 2011 performing at Masada in collaboration with members of the Rishon Lezion Symphonic Orchestra and the opera choir.
