Florence is steeped in history when it comes to the arts, and there is nothing quite like seeing a show, musical, opera, ballet, or symphony orchestra in any one of the city’s majestic theaters.
As the birthplace of opera in the late 16th century, Florence has a few grand theaters where sopranos belt out timeless arias for a music-loving clientele. The best performers can usually be found at the two main opera houses: Teatro Comunale di Firenze, which hosts Italy’s biggest opera festival and was built in the late 1800s, and Teatro della Pergola, which is one of the oldest opera houses in Italy, let alone Florence.
Other great theaters in Florence include Teatro Verdi, which features everything from dance to avant garde art and was built in the 14th century, and Otel, which is really more of a club, though during dinner hours it features theater performances that include dance, live music, and magicians.
Going to Florence theaters, whether old or new, is a timeless tradition. So, if you’re in the mood for a little more culture in your nightlife, check out all the theater options across the city.
