What To Expect

In 1949, the most famous soprano in the world got married to Giovanni Battista Meneghini, a marble entrepreneur from Verona. He was 27 years older than her. The wedding was undertone because of the opposition of Meneghini's family to Maria Callas, and the couple got married in the presence of only the priest and two witnesses.

The tour includes a guided visit to the wedding chapel, the exhibition of the register of signatures and a visit to the church of Padri Filippini, which includes the chapel, and a Classical music concert with classical ensemble and soprano.

The duration of tour is approximately 20 minutes, the concert 30 minutes. The duration of whole experience is 50 minutes.
