We are huge opera fans and since there were no staged opera performances during my 10-day visit we chose to at least hear some arias. For 25€ we hoped it would at least be decent. The church is small and the acoustics were okay but...More
We bought tickets at the door at about 7:00 without booking, we went to dinner around the corner at “Napoleons” (2 min away) and attended the performance at 9:15. Easy. Every seat is good. The pianist was fantastic. The performers were breathe taking. I would...More
Loved the evening concert at Santa Monaca church with a medley of songs performed by a duo and a pianist. Great venue in a lovely church,we had wine in the intermission. Had prepaid our tickets online to sit wherever you please.
This small venue is just a short walk from Ponte Vecchio. We booked the tickets via the hotel after seeing a poster advertising the event on their board. The pianist was excellent and, in the intimate surroundings, it was fascinating to watch him play his...More
You sit close to italian opera stars and feel the awesome power of real opera passion. Unbelievable feeling and experience. We’ll never forget this impression. Standing ovations at the end. Don’t miss out. Definitely a highlight in Florence. 👍🏻👌🏼🇮🇹
My first encounter with opera. Incredible venue and singers in magical Florence.

I had high expectations based on the outstanding reviews and it surpassed my expectations! Sitting in the first row we were only 10 feet away and then the soprano Hiroko Saito came within five feet while she sang one of the pieces. And David Boldrini...More
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
