Be careful of which seats you choose when sitting in a box.

Be careful with the seats in the boxes. We had seats A & B in box 19 which sounds like they are situated in the front of the box, right? Not so - we sat behind chairs marked C... read more

Be careful with the seats in the boxes. We had seats A & B in box 19 which sounds like they are situated in the front of the box, right? Not so - we sat behind chairs marked C & D. From that viewpoint one of you can see 3/4 of the stage, the other can see less. It makes... More

The Teatro della Pergola is a lovely old building which houses an auditorium used for musical shows, performances and recitals. Located on Via della Pergola, it is great place to go enjoy some wonderful music!

We had the great pleasure of discovering and attending a performance of Beethoven sonatas -- on an original fortepiano -- the instrument for which the music was originally written. The Russian artist (Alexandra -- with a last name that cannot be written in English) was beautifully intense. I have a somewhat casual interest in classical music -- so this evening... More

Historic & nicely preserved --- as well as being functional/ comfortable (given the seats a tad narrow & the leg room limited!) whatever is on that you fancy one thing is constant..this Opera-style auditorium is a delight. Next time I'm going to try one of the boxes & pretend I'm nobility! You can book on-line & collect your tix same... More

The web site did not make clear that this was a very old building, with basic facilities in the theatre auditorium and no air conditioning. The 17c boxes have chairs, rather than theatre seat and the view from the d and e seats is poor. As an historical venue, great, as a venue for a warm evening, less great.

Attended a lovely performance, was shocked how noisy the audience was however (phones and chatting). Great old theater with a love cafe off the lobby. Did the "backstage tour" and was disappointed how poorly lit and dusty the exhibits were - not really worth it. They aren't really set up for large groups for the tour.

We met the Casals Quartet at Zia Gigi and decided to attend their concert. The Teatro is a wonderful place for music, a romanesque venue with fine acoustics. The audience was sophisticated and, like us, thoroughly enjoyed the Schubert celebration from the stage.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
