Teatro Verdi Reviews
If you have the chance to catch an event here, please do so. Accoustics are really good no matter where you sit. The ambiance is straight out of the 19th century. more »
The place to catch up on plays music and more. It’s a large theatre and an attraction in Florence. Saw this impressive building from outside. more »
Great theatre. Very conveniently located. Several very nice restaurants nearby. Also a beautiful piazza close by.
We went to see swan lake and had a lovely time! I removed one star because the show did start half an hour late, with no mention of it even happening. By looking at the space it seemed as if they were waiting to either all the guests to arrive or for all the seats to be sold. The minute all the expensive seats were filled, the show started. Not a very nice move, but in the other hand the ballet was masterful!
