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.

I am highly recommending this excellent tour. A nice dinner at a local restaurant in an Italian-like cellar type restaurant. Food was great!! Then, you are in for a fantastico treat!! The opera singers and piano player at St. Mark's Church were beyond excellent!! Very moving and inspirational even if this is your first experience with opera or you don't even like opera at all. The setting is intimate and it just makes for beautiful acoustics in this very pretty church. I was brought to tears at one point from this wonderful experience. We had a great night!!!!

We loved this tour - would recommend to anyone visiting Florence. We met up early for dinner at a surprisingly cosy cellar restaurant. Over a pleasant dinner with plenty of wine and lively conversation we got to know the rest of our small group who hailed from - New Orleans, Malta and Germany (we are from the UK).
We then took a very short walk to the venue - a small church. Not knowing what to expect we were pleasantly surprised to be introduced to an internationally acclaimed musician who would act as host and accompany the artists on the piano. The artists were a Tenor and Soprano each one having received many plaudits and critical acclaim in their own right.
We were then treated to a selection of solos, arias and duets from popular operas and stage shows.
The small church was a perfect setting with excellent acoustics and our tour assured us of front row seats from which to enjoy our concert.
All in all this was a unique and intimate experience which will reprise on our ' to do ' list on any revisit to Florence.
