Departure Point

Opera at St. Mark's Anglican Church, Via Maggio 18, 50125, Florence Italy
7:00 PM
Your evening will begin in central Florence, where you’ll meet with your host and walk to a stunning palazzo, once home to members of Florentine nobility. Arrive inside the opulent banquet hall and settle into your seat as the show begins.

Music from the Renaissance era will strike up, with the impressive pitch of a soprano singer, accompanied by harps and flutes. Dancers in 15th-century garb will impress with their traditional steps and, if you’re lucky, might select you to join them on the dance floor.

Continue to enjoy the performance as your 4-course meal is served, offering delicious salads, meats, dessert and more. Sip local Chianti wine with your dishes and digest with an after-dinner coffee. When the meal and music concludes, you will be given a personalized certificate on parchment with the palazzo emblem to commemorate your night.

This was ok - the staff were so friendly and really did make you feel welcome. Food was average, plenty of wine, entertainment a little cheesy, but a good night overall. If you have a few drinks before you go - you'll probably have a great night!

Excellent experience, highly entertaining, beautiful palace! Had difficulty locating due to duplicate street numbers throughout the city with no guidance from Viator. Also, would have been nice to have the story on the history of the palace.

My husband and myself had a great night. The food, wine, entertainment and service were brilliant and the whole experience was better than the description given on the website. The venue was really good but definitely tricky to find. We had a look for it in the morning and were very grateful for Marlene D's review with directions. We would definitely recommend this trip which is great value for money.

This was an excellent night out the venue was the Piazzali Borghese which was the former very opulent home of Pauline Bonaparte the Favourite but scandalous sister of Naploeon.. On arrival we were given a glass of Bubbly which was a nice touch made us feel welcome.. The meal and Wine was excellent plenty of it and and the staff were all very pleasant and the service was first class ..The entertainment was really good took us back to the Renaissance as promised and everyone seemed to be having a good time.. I was invited to dress up which was fun and I have some great pictures to remind me of a very enjoyable evening out in Florence which I would certainly recommend .. When looking for the Venue it is next to the Borghese Palace Art Hotel which is no 174 Via Ghibellina and the Venue is 110 Via Ghiballina note that the street numbers don't follow on so keep looking .. Also the street had a different name on either side so we walked straight passed at first so you need to look at both sides of the street when looking for Via Ghiballina the easiest way would be take a tax but they are not cheap in Florencei!!

The evening itself was Fantastic - the meal outstanding and the entertainment was enjoyable. However there were a few things that need to be improved - I did not want to rate the experience negatively but these issues are ONE STAR. First - the venue is located at a hard to locate building. CAF Tour who was the point of contact for this evening sent me to the wrong location - they google mapped the address and directed me while on the telephone to a wooden door that was on the side of a building next to Viktoria Lounge Bar - THIS IS NOT THE LOCATION. Giving up we started to walk back to the hotel and passed another building with the same address 200 meters up the street. We were not the only ones late - about 30 other folks came about an hour later after us. Apparently there is a north and south address - Funny that the Tour organizer did not know this. The second issue was the listed dress code. It specifically stated no sandals. Well - when we finally got to the venue, everyone was dressed up and many were wearing sandals - cant really get dressed up wearing sneakers.... This was a great evening after we overcame the challenges - CAF and Viator are doing this business a great disservice by not fully understanding where the venue is located and what actually happens during the evening. I would hope someone at CAF would work with their staff to educated them on this venue's location - and Viator update the dress code restrictions. More people should experience this fun evening and wonderful food.

This was a terrific night and the entertainment was so much fun, I even got dressed in the medieval clothes and danced with the male dancer to one of the dances. The food was wonderful and there was so much of it and there was plenty of wine. Everyone got into the spirit of the night and we all bonded and had a great night. The room was just stunning with all the gold, mirrors and candelabras. This night will not be forgotten.

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our delightful evening at the Renaissance Banquet in Florence. From start to finish the gracious staff made us feel welcome and pampered. Each course of the meal was delicious, especially the prime rib and lemon cake. Even our very picky 11-year-old came home completely full. The musicians were talented and provided added ambience. Throughout the evening members of the audience were selected to participate in different aspects of the entertainment, which added to the amusement. The ambience of the Palazzo Borghese adds heavily to the evening. The dining area is stunningly beautiful. After dinner some of the wait staff proudly gave us a tour of some of the other rooms. It was just a lovely and perfect evening.

Fabulous evening out. Not easy to be sure of the venue but look out for the large arched portico doors - it's on the Florence Lions Club. Amazing decor and much much MUCH more enjoyable than the Viator description. No hidden costs and lots of wine + multi choice main courses. top entertainment. V gd

There was no one to greet us once in the building and there was lack of direction on where to go until someone arrived. There was no clear introduction and seating was confusing. It seemed somewhat unorganised and that the staff where in their own world. The food/drink and entertainment were sufficient.
