Fodor's Expert Review Maggio Musicale Fiorentino
After some delay due to funding issues, a new music hall opened in 2014; the area is called the Parco della Musica (Music Park), and was designed by Paolo Desideri and associates. Three concert halls (two indoor, one outdoor) are planned, and only one has been completed. Maggio Musicale has taken up residence there, and continues to hold forth at the Teatro Comunale (Corso Italia 16, Lungarno North 055/287222www.maggiofiorentino.com). Within Italy you can purchase tickets from late April through July directly at the box office or by phone (055/2779309). You can also buy them online.
