We caught Nabucco with the amazing Anna Pirozzi and all in the oldest opera house in the world. Ticket purchase beforehand is essential but sadly they don't warn you about restricted views. Because of the horseshoe shape of the concert hall, some of the side...More

Guided tour takes ca. 45 minutes - it is interesting but not very detailed and you don’t get to visit the “behind the scenes”. If you’re into theatre and opera, it’s worth taking the tour though. We’ve also seen the “Dame with camellias” ballet -...More

What a stunning theatre. Central seats are necessary if you want to see the whole stage but we were in a box to ourselves almost above the orchestra pit and we loved it
