This famous theater completely built in wood and stucco has been famous for centuries. Finding it here in such a well preserved state is a great pleasure. Wonderful to linger for a while sitting on one of the benches and enjoying the famous perspectives

It is a fascinating theatre that has been restored. A ticket provides entry to the theatre and the National gallery that contains some Correggios and a da Vinci drawing.

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.
