The building is beautiful, but you will get much more pleasure if you book tickets for a performance before you visit - its worth it.

This is one of the most beautiful opera houses in Europe, not only because of the marvelous building but also because of its rich history, beginning by its name "La Fenice" since it has come back to life after two fires! A great place to visit and of course to enjoy the show! Don't forget to buy tickets online.

Attended June 2013. Husband booked tickets well in advance and we were centre stage front row. It was the modern version of Carmen which is very different for instance motor cars and naked matador! For us the Israeli conductor omer meir wellber stole the show, he is a real showman and sitting right on his shoulder we were able to... More

If you can get tickets to an opera while you are in Venice it will become a memory you will cherish forever. If you can't make it to a show, be sure to take the tour of this magnificent theater. The tour is great because you can go anywhere in the theater, sit in the front row, see the orchestra... More

A trip around this magnificent theatre is well worth the money. You will be given an audio guide to walk around with, which goes into great detail about the theatres history. The building itself is beautiful.

Worth the cost, €24 for family ticket of 4, to conduct the tour with audio guide. Small tour but beautiful theatre and side rooms.

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
