The Three Tenors & Dinner
Featuring a trio of vocal talents as well as a superbly prepared Italian meal, The Three Tenors and Dinner makes for an evening of gastronomic delight as well as top-notch music. The renowned Guelfi and Ghibellini Restaurant is the setting for the first part of this wonderful experience, a restaurant that has been delighting customers in the heart of Florence for years. The event then moves on to the Auditorium di Santo Stefano al Ponte Vecchio where audience goers will be dazzled by a performance that evokes the famous concert of the 1990s which featured Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo and José Carreras. Including many well-known songs, the concert comfortably blends Neapolitan songcraft with Italian arias drawn from some of the most popular operas in the country.
Before the music begins, a trip to the Guelfi and Ghibellini Restaurant sets the concert up perfectly. Situated at the Relais Santa Croce, a beautiful five-star hotel, this restaurant is known for its culinary expertise and mouth-watering menus. In the building's sumptuous surroundings, diners can enjoy a truly Tuscan tasting experience. The meal features a number of traditional dishes that have been reinterpreted with a true passion, making them rise to the level of sophistication required of fine dining. The menu on offer is specifically designed to act as a precursor to the concert and includes a glass of wine. With dining starting at 6 pm, the three opening courses are rounded off by a delicious dessert and coffee.
A key thing to mention about the restaurant's wonderful setting is that as well as the frescoes which decorate it, there are some ancient wooden roof trusses attributed to the Renaissance genius Leonardo Da Vinci available to view. Simply ask the restaurant staff if you would like to take the opportunity to be shown these remarkable structural features and they will be happy to oblige. As such, The Three Tenors and Dinner makes for a fantastic musical, culinary and architecturally pleasing event that everyone can enjoy!
