We went to a concert the same day we arrived. What a perfect way to start our holidays. The place is fantastic full of details in the decoration. The acustics are great and we enjoyed very much the concert.

A wonderful building full of history and great stories told by extremely able guides ( in different languages) in a very well organised and entertaining way. All topped off with a short song on the marble steps.

We bought our tickets for the FL Academy at the Academy's box office the night of the performance we saw (just an hour ahead of time), and the prices were incredibly reasonable.
