This beautiful wooden theatre is well worth a visit. A ticket to the National Gallery gets you access to the theatre, as you pass through the theatre to access the gallery.

I bought the student ticket for only 1.5€. The theater is So well designed And beautiful. And there are So many collections in gallery that are worthy to see. Ancient statues and famous paintings. You might probably need to be prepared for the background knowledge of those artwork to have better understanding When you visit.

We visited all the theatres on the "Historic theatre route" from Perspectiv (www.perspectiv-online.org), but this was a highlight! Huge beautifully renovated theatre, only 2 eur entrance. Not to be missed!

We bought tickets for the National Gallery that also included this theatre. Despite being rebuilt following bomb damage in the second world war, it was well worth visiting.

I have never seen any thing like it. Beautifully proportioned theatre created entirely in wood. Little used in its day,then destroyed in the war and rebuilt it has had a strange history. But stunning

This teatre is entirely built in wood a few centuries ago, and it is large and elegant. It tells us what the shows looked like in that distant time, and how much people liked art and music in that part of Italy.

Simply, this about sums this place up. You just do not want to leave; you can hardly wait to go back!! Where oh where have all these master tradespeople/craftsmen gone ? We wonder how many learn the art of wood carving anymore ? How many cabinet makers, wood turners , inlayers and boat builders are being trained now ? There... More

The feeling of history is strong, even though the theatre was entirely rebuilt as a replica after severe damage from a second world war bomb. I found the building magical, the shafts of light playing on the wood was beautiful and almost complete silence moving. I was very lucky that when I arrived (soon after it opened) there were only...
