Experience an authentic Italian evening in Florence, and enjoy a Tuscan meal followed by a concert! Taking place at an ambient restaurant in the charming Oltrarno neighborhood, the meal is offered in two ways: a set menu with Chianti wine or an à la carte menu featuring enticing Tuscan specialties. After relaxing over dinner, make your own way to St Mark’s Anglican Church and finish the night with a concert or opera performance, complete with a reserved front-row seat.
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.
