What You Can Expect

Florence Concert and Dinner

Enjoy a concert and dinner in Florence!

Your evening starts in the charming neighborhood of Oltrarno, on the south side of the Arno River. Make your own way to a traditional Florentine restaurant, where your table awaits. Then, sit back and relax as the friendly waiting staff serve up your meal.

Select a budget-friendly set menu with Chianti wine, or upgrade to enjoy a choice of traditional Tuscan dishes from an à la carte menu. Wine is not included with the à la carte option, but a wide selection is available should you want to order a bottle at your own expense. See the Itinerary for sample menus.

After dinner, take a short stroll into town to St Mark's Anglican Church, the setting for your intimate concert performance. Your reserved seat, at the heart of the action in the front row, is ideal for taking in the acoustics and ambiance as professional singers take the stage.

Sit back and prepare to be enchanted as works by some of the operatic greats — Puccini, Verdi, Rossini — as well as other popular Neapolitan songs are performed. Read on for the 2014/15 program:

The concert was an Unexpected delight. Well worth doing. The dinner was not so spectacular, but well managed and located near the church for the concert.
