St Mark’s Anglican Church Tours
Read MoreShow Less
This historic Anglican Church in Florence, Italy has English roots — remaining one of three worship centers that form the chaplaincy of the Church of England (the other two are St. Peter’s in Siena and a growing congregation in Bologna.) Built in 1881, it is steeped in local history — part of an old Medici palace, later owned by Machiavelli, and then renovated in neb-renaissance style. It is known as a symbol of Renaissance architecture.
The church often serves the homeless community of Florence and holds mass regularly. It remains a center of Anglo-Catholic religion for the British expat community in Florence. The beautiful interior of the Anglican Church is furthermore a hub of historic art and one of the most celebrated concert venues in Florence with classical performances in music, choral singing, and opera as well as a variety of visiting performers. With only 150 seats, it is an intimate venue to experience a live concert.
The church is located at Via Maggio 18. To get there by walking, take the one minute walk south from the Arno River at the Ponte Santa Trinita.
Address: Via Maggio 18, Florence 50125, Italy

Recent Reviews from Experiences in Florence
Up close and personal viewing of talented opera performers
, Feb 2020
Booked as a surprise and wasn't disappointed. A fantastic evening of La Triviata. Even refreshments to buy in the inerval (3 Euros for prosecco). Would recommend.
, Nov 2019
It consists of opera pieces, with live piano, in an authentic little church. Artists are talented, and English presentation of each piece helps the audience understand the story. Clearly -and understandably- not a real Italian opera experience because some audience sits like they are at home on the sofa, wearing all sorts of casual clothes and shoes. But it can be a light and fun start for people who are afraid to be bored of opera.
Great experience cool setting

Loved the format performance and setting, the church was what made it more intimate. What a better way to see a opera and knowing proceeds go a good cause. My kids loved the experience and were mesmerized.
