You get a nice view on this Opera House, situated near San Marco. It's not for free, but you will see some very nice decorated places.

we did the self-tour with audio guide for €9 and it was so worth it. The history of the building is fascinating and the interior is mind blowing. Definitely made me want to go and see an opera there when we go back to Venice

We'd never been to opera and saw the elixir of love. It was amazing. And the English subtitles helped us understand but didn't detract from the performance.

We attended a performance to see La Traviata during Carnival. It was our first time seeing the opera house. What a gorgeous venue! Simply breathtaking. We had front row seats in a box about three levels up near the center. The seats were great and worth the splurge. You do need to purchase them almost immediately after they become available....

Teatro la Fenice di Venezia is one of best opera houses in Italy and europe. The building has been rebuild after its destruction because of fire. The atmosphere and acoustic are fantastic. If you are interrested in classical music and opera I would recommend you to book any opera in Fenice. 'Elisir d'amore' by Donizetti was perfect however I would... More

We saw Donizetti's comic opera "L'elisir d'amore" last week and we sat in the orchestra second section at the break between sections on the aisle. Our seats were amazing at 150 euro each and when you see what they charge for Broadway musicals and the Metropolitan we weren't at all disappointed. Great entertainment and good voices and the orchestra was... More

My lovely husband bought me to Venice as a surprise, if that wasn't a treat enough he took me to La Fenice to see the opera. The Elixir Of Love. Loved it, beautiful opera house. And loved the fireman also in attendance...just in case. Tickets weren't that expensive as compared to London or Glynebourne and it was wonderful! Dress up... More

This is a world class opera house with a well desrved reputation. Not cheap but well worth the costs. Book in advance if possible to ensure you get the seats you need and the performance of choice. Has special programmes during Carneval. Never disappoints.
