Heard Zubin Mehta and Andreas Schiff with Brahms Piano Concerto and Shostakovich symphony. It was fantastic, Acoustics were absolutely wonderful - and we are Classical Music snobs. We got a cab from our hotel as we would never have found the place, ate really good...More
While in Florence, do not miss the artistic program of the Teatro del Maggio. I was fortunate enough to watch the concert of Zubin Mehta and Andras Schiff. It was fantastic! In addition, I had the chance to walk through a less touristy region of...More
Whilst it is strange to visit a modern building such as Teatro del Maggio Musicale when in historic Florence it really is a magical (and emotional) experience. There is a choice of seat prices to suit every budget. We had the 20 euro seats and...More
This did not exist when I first went to Florence. It is a stunning bit of modern architecture, and the auditorium itself was amazing. Acoustics were brilliant.
We went to see Madame Butterfly and had outstanding seats for about Euro50 or so. Production was very...More
The MMF has an amazing chorus and orchestra. In my opinion they are the best in Italy. I would highly recommend anybody to go and see their season. Coming to the opera will make a wonderful evening. Be sure to support them.
I love the Maggio Musicale and take it in each year. There are many different kinds of performances. Certainly there is one to meet every musical interest. Also visit the new beautiful opera house. Extraordinary.
For many decades the opera company of Florence, officially the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, has been offering international quality performances on a regular basis.

It's a very good option for not being in a typical italian opera house. The acoustic is great, the variety of their repertoire is nice and the orchestra director is amazing. The orchestra is ok though.
Not sure if this review is in the correct place, but I think it is. My husband and I took our son to see the Barber of Saville at the Florence Opera while we were on vacation. It was wonderful! Enjoyed the light café selections...More

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
