The festival events take place between mid June till mid July (different dates), where the city and its suburbs, the halls and the open areas turn into one giant festive stage.
Concerts and opera plays conducted by the best conductors and played by the best bands and orchestras.
Within the years, jazz concerts, ethnic music, theater and dance shows were added to the festival events. Due to the numerous visitors during the festival days and the high demand for tickets and accommodations it is recommended to check hotel rates and book rooms & tickets well in advance.
The shows are held in halls, city squares, Basilica, antique monasteries and archeological sites that turn, during the festival days, to stages with impressive authentic decoration.
