What people are saying about Rome

It was a unique experience! Fantastic place, great singers, a super program, almost the top hits of Italian operas. Aperitivo and service also good! The view from the roof terrace is simply unforgettable! We're glad we treated ourselves to this!

It was very nice because both singers were very good. Of course the acoustics are bad on a roof terrace, but the two really made the best of it.

Absolutely brilliant experience. Super talented musicians and extremely impressive acoustics. Would definitely go again!!

Very warm welcome at the venue and excellent performance by the two singers and pianist. Very enjoyable evening.

Brilliant way to see the highlights of the city. Flexible and fun
