You have a piano, soprano & tenor performing Opera’s love song and Italian love songs. The setting and performance is overwhelmingly powerful. You’ll be moved to tears by the emotions. Not to be missed. « less

We had just one evening in Florence on this trip and decided to pre-book this event. What a fabulous decision! The church is located "on the other side of the river" and the entrance is easily missed as you walk by. It is near a very nice piazza where you can have your leisurely Italian dinner beforehand. The concert does... More

We were recently privileged to see a second performance at this lovely old church. This time it was Madame Butterfly with the marvellous Miki Shibahara in the lead role. Wonderful performances. A highlight of our recent visit to Tuscany and will definitely return when next in Firenze.

Very reasonable (35euro a ticket) opera, in an intimate setting and particularly good for opera novices and the proceeds go to charity. Booking was done a few months before we visited Florence and we got front row seats which although daunting was brilliant. Booking couldn't have been easier (emailed them directly) and all my questions etc were answered very quickly... More

Our second evening of Opera at St Mark's was as good, if not better, than the first time. This performance of Don Giovanni did not disappoint. Small, intimate setting - beautiful voices, friendly welcome, comfortable seating. Will definitely return next time we are in Florence

We were walking by the church one night and heard this amazing music and voices, we quickly got the information for their next performance. This was a highlight of our trip. The setting is beautiful and intimate, rarely do you get to see such amazing opera singers up so close. The performers were spectacular, these are true professionals with impressive... More

This was a high point during our recent Florence stay. The Opera is magnificent. The acoustics were great. We really loved the performance and the venue. Cannot say enough good things about this. Don't miss it.

The venue was easy to get to and totally gorgeous. The small and intimate setting was great and the pieces chosen were the more popular/famous ones so we were familiar with at least one or two of them. The performers were thorough professionals with extensive global touring experience. However it was evident they knew each other well and there was... More

We visited this place back in 2011 and decided to take the kids again this year. They loved it and so did we. It's almost as if all the hustle and bustle of Florence disappears once you enter. Must see, do not miss this hidden gem.

Even if you aren't an opera fan, like me, this venue/program is a wonderful experience. It was lighthearted and beautiful. A great way to finish a day of sightseeing.

Magical! The voices, venue and acting made this experience memorable. We saw the opera Rigoletto and cannot say enough about the overall performance. Tickets were purchased prior to our arrival in Italy.
