Have you ever heard monks recite vespers and mass? Come to Florence Abbey and listen to the sacred song.
How to listen to the sacred songs of monks in Florence
Every single evening at 18.00 monks recite vespers and at 18.30 they recite Mass. This is one the most emotional event in Florence where you can experience every day routine of locals.

How to do?

1. Go to Via del Proconsolo Street, 11.
2. Here you'll see a big bell tower. This is Badia Fiorentina (Florence Abbey) and at 18 sharp you'll hear the sacred songs of monks.
3. Travelers aren’t allowed to get to the event so you have to blend into the crowd of locals and reach the place.

Where to do?
