Florence Performing Arts

Florence has a lively classical music scene. The internationally famous annual Maggio Musicale lights up the musical calendar in early spring, and continues throughout most of the rest of the year.

What it lacks in contemporary

music, however, is more than made up for with its many theatrical offerings.
