Had a box with direct view to the stage. Nice performance! Food could maybe be a little bit better, but ok. Good service. It was in about 10 minutes walking distance from our flat!

Beautiful theater, gracious staff and the opera was enjoyable. To have such an intimate experience at any of the major opera houses would cost many times more than these tickets do and the performers were great. My only complaint, and it's sad to say because...More

Lovely small theater with smaller Opera productions but not smaller voices. The leads were very powerful and the setting is quite intimate. While you miss the larger orchestration you get an intimate understanding of the singing technique.

It’s hard to belief even that the worst opera I’ve ever seen was in the center of Rome. All the good comments are probably from people who are tone deaf. I kind of felt bad when the waiter who took away my plate that was...More

From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
