About the Event
Add a taste of Italian lyricism to your stay in Florence: Three tenors perform opera arias and famous traditional Neapolitan songs in the heart of Tuscany's beautiful capital.
In the Auditorium Santo Stefano al Ponte Vecchio, the soloists are accompanied by a chamber ensemble of mandolin, cello, and piano. Famous arias from 'La Traviata', 'Rigoletto', and 'Tosca' share the program with Neopolitan favorites like 'O sole mio', 'Funiculì Funiculà', and 'Torna a Surriento'.
Before the concert, indulge in Tuscan cuisine between the 18th‐century walls of Guelfi and Ghibellini Restaurant at Relais Santa Croce in the heart of Florence. Enjoy your meal among fine furnishings and frescoed ceilings, and take advantage of the opportunity to admire the wooden roof trusses based on a design by Leonardo Da Vinci. Situated in Relais Santa Croce, they were installed in 18th century to support the great chandelier of the Music Hall.

Acoustics weren't great, but still entertaining! Well worth the money.
Very good and most enjoyable
Overall it’s enjoyable, I found the dancing routine is boring, the male dancer is rather casual
A fabulous evening. Apertivo and dinner beforehand in the grand Relais Croce were well above expectations. The venue for the concert is beautiful but the acoustics are not great. Pianist and other musicians are excellent as are the three tenors. A real treat.
