    What to Expect
    Add some art and culture to your evening in Florence with a 70-minute concert of Italian opera arias inside a 15th-century church.
    Enter the Santa Monaca Church in the Oltrarno neighborhood of Florence, which dates from the early 1400s but has only been used for performances and exhibits since the 19th century.
    Enjoy a concert of arias performed by professional singers and chosen from a variety of famous operas. Admire the operatic skill of these world-traveled musicians, including sopranos, mezzo-sopranos, tenors, baritones and basses. Hear selections from 'The Marriage of Figaro,' 'Tosca,' 'The Barber of Seville,' 'Madame Butterfly,' 'La Bohème' and 'La Traviata.'

    All three artists gave wonderful performances combining talent with passion. The venue was perfect with seating for around 60. The ticketing process was simple and secure.

    Church a little difficult to find but the concert was well worth the effort. If you are only in Florence for a short stay and live opera is your thing then I recommend you seek this out.

    Smart casual is how we went but there were people there is just comfortable tourist clothing. It is not a posh venue seats are just put out for you to sit on. Have a good time.
