What people are saying about Emilia-Romagna

The museum having its own organization, our guide Marie was essential. Explanations are necessary to fully enjoy and understand this museum. Marie knew how to make us discover the masterpieces while always having an excellent view of the works without being disturbed by the world. Marie gave us explanations that we did not know about the structure of the paintings, taking into account the context of creation using a tablet. The visit was well prepared and argued. Our 19 year old son learned a lot. We have not seen the time passed.

Our overall experience was very good. We found ourselves in the company of some fab people from England and Germany and had a very enjoyable meal. Although the venue is very close to the restaurant it is somewhat tucked away in a small piazza, which if you don't know Florence or are only there for the day is not so easy to find at night. The concert itself was very good and the guys actively encouraged audience to engage with them. A very nice evening in the company of lovely people and artists.

Not too many details given Hard to find restaurant and then church But dinner was excellent and show fantastic

Perfect surroundings for beautiful music! Comfortable surroundings to enjoy the evening of lovely music.

Great talented performers and pianist. Very nice setting for Opera.
