In a magical Christmas atmosphere, music enters the most beautiful churches in Florence. On December 10th and 15th two concerts not to be missed with free admission.
The unique atmosphere of pre-Christmas Florence is enhanced by two unique events. One of the most beautiful churches in Florence will open its doors to music for concerts and choirs that will feature the majors groups arriving from the other side of the world.
Unique concerts in unique locations. The splendid church of Santo Stefano al Ponte Vecchio, very close to Ponte Vecchio, is a jewel to discover and rediscover. The church is one of the oldest in Florence, documented as early as 1116 in the first list of Florentine churches known, and over the centuries enriched with numerous interventions that make it nowadays original in its architecture.
