Treat yourself to a wonderful and romantic experience: a candlelight dinner held in a musical atmosphere that only the Italian Opera can give. This limited and exclusive event is held in the Innocenzo X Hall at the Pamphilj Palace, where you can enjoy a splendid view of Piazza Navona.
An elegant place where you can sit on your reserved seat and taste the very best of the Italian cuisine accompanied by a selection of fine wines. The musical program with Arie and Duetti from the Opera will be held both before dinner and while the courses are being served with a final surprise at the end.
