TEATRO DEL MAGGIO
The Teatro del Maggio is in the center, close to the old city walls, next to the historic Stazione Leopolda. The garden that welcomes visitors is Piazzale Vittorio Gui, named after the founder of the Florentine Orchestral Stable and the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.
Santa Maria Novella is Florence’s main train
station. You can reach the Teatro del Maggio
