This is a beautiful building where we went to see 75 minutes of great Italian music and singing. A fabulous little chapel towards the back of the entrance and a very intimate theatre. And there was a bar too!!

This is a perfect evening - quartet, soprano, and tenor. Terrific selection of songs and classical music. Amazing setting. A cocktail before (which you can take to your seat - very civilized). And not a bad seat in the (very tiny) house. Go, it's so...More

We traveled with our young adult sons (and one girlfriend) to Rome for a family vacation. While our middle son has spent several years involved with music through school, the other two have only some appreciation. Our family goal was to do at least one...More

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa

There’s no dress code per se. We wore “nice casual” clothes. I wore a summer dress and friends wore light pants and nice shirts. Bring a wrap in case you get chilly in the lovely air conditioning.
