Whilst we enjoy a trip to the opera occasionally,we are not opera buffs, however, a tour of the La Fenice is wonderful thing to do and a great way to spend a few hours. Admission is 9 euro for adults and 6.50 for concessions,with a 3 euro levy if you want to take photos. you are given an audio tape... More

We subscribe to three opera seasons in the US, so we could be "opera fans". La Fenice is bizarrely overdone in an ornate style that is fascinating in its excess. However, as an acoustic space to see and HEAR an opera, it is very good. Acoustically, pretty much all the seats are very good. You're never too far away. The... More

Although opera is not a priority with me, I wanted to see the world famous La Fenice. I was glad I did as it is stunningly beautiful. You can take photos of the stage and boxes as well as the different rooms, almost all of which had beautiful chandeliers. It is truly impressive, and I was thankful to the harpist... More

Every time we come to Venice we tour The Fenice, it is a stunning building with such a story to tell. The audio tour is fascinating only lasting an hour and you can do it at your own pace.

did the self tour with audio commentary. A good hours tour with an excellent commentary introduces you to the history of this beautiful theatre. I just wish I had the brass to take in an opera. The tour let me try out the royal box and sit in the auditorium.

A wonderful venue and if you don't mind restricted views you can attend an opera without needing a mortgage to do so. Under 40 euros and a fabulous evening in a very opulent setting

Never seem to time our visits to Venice to coincide with performances but the tour is worth the entry fee. The interior decoration is simply wonderful and a credit to the post fire rebuild. Sit in the Napoleon box and take it all in.
