Why not book a hostel in Florence and check out the youth festival?
People who are into their classical music may like to take a trip to Italy in the near future.

Individuals who have some spare time in July might like to book a hostel in Florence for a weekend break or holiday and head over to the Italian city to take in the city's youth festival.

There are a range of different acts performing with up to 75 concerts held by around 20 different orchestras.

"The Festival aims to represent as many different cultures and nationalities as possible and encourages applications from all international youth and student symphony orchestras," the organisers stated.

If you book a Florence hostel near the Ponte Vecchio then you should only be about 100 metres away from the Palazzo Pitti courtyard, where all the musical magic is set to happen.

People visiting the entertainment spectacle can witness each group performing three or four shows in the city.

The event goes on from July 1st until the 26th, so it might be worth reserving a cheap hostel in Florence around this time for those who are keen on taking in some of the action.

Visitors will be able to enjoy acts from all over the world as orchestras from Russia, Austria, Belgium, Spain and the US have already signed up to become a part of the attraction.

Other events that might interest classical music fans could include the Opera Festival which is currently occurring and lasts until July 28th, taking place in the Boboli Gardens among other venues.
