Hotel Regency is close to Florence's Teatro della Pergola.
The 5-star hotel is only 850 meters from one of Italy's oldest theaters and can be reached on foot by walking down Via Vittorio Alfieri, Via della Colonna, and Via della Pergola.
The theater is at numbers 12/32.
It is one of Italy's Seven National Theaters, architecturally listed in 1942 because it was "the first great example of Italian-style theater."
The theater was built and opened in 1656.
On the outside it has neoclassical forms complemented by an iron canopy built in recent times.
Salmon-colored, the facade has two main entrances. The central body has eleven axes arranged on three floors.
To the right of the main entrance is a plaque commemorating the first performance of Macbeth, written for this theater and directed by Giuseppe Verdi on March 14, 1847.
The basement houses a small museum with numerous relics, old dressing rooms, rehearsal rooms, and the remains of an 18th-century street with the doorways of some small stores used by actors and musicians.
The Teatro della Pergola saw the birth of melodrama, from which opera later developed.
It has hosted numerous major premieres: the ones of Luigi Cherubini's Christoph Willibald Gkuck, Gaetano Donizetti's Parisina d'Este and Rosmonda of England, Giuseppe Verdi's Macbeth, Joseph Haydn's Orfeo ed Euridice, Pietro Mascagni's Fritz the Friend, and Georges Bizet's Carmen.
Today it hosts major theatrical performances, courses and temporary exhibitions.
