This was one of the highlights of our trip. The dinner was enjoyable, but the concert was the real treat. We sat just a few feet from the performers, so we felt as if we were part of the show. The selections were enjoyable, even to those not familiar with opera. The only negative point was that we had to walk a bit to the restaurant and then to the concert. This was challenging for some of the older people (such as me).
This was the best day of our trip! The Chianti region is sooo beautiful! We enjoyed the tour of the winery and the tasting. There were some snacks to go with the wine. We had a little time to walk through two villages and then went to dinner in a third town. The restaurant was in an old stone building. We felt as though we had entered a time machine and came out 500 years earlier. The dinner was very good, but it was the atmosphere that was 5 stars.
