Experience an unforgettable Renaissance evening in the magnificent setting of the ancient halls of a noble residence, the medieval Palazzo Borghese in Via Ghibellina in the historical center of Florence. You'll step into the atmosphere of a 15th century Florentine banquet, with the sound of a harp and flute, the sweet voice of a soprano,
and dances of the period. Waiters, musicians, dancers, and the jester – all in beautiful Renaissance costumes – invite you to be a part of the evening. And if you want, you can wear the traditional costumes and learn dance steps of the 1400's!
