What a brilliant restoration of this opera house. But first you must read John Berendt's book, "City of Falling Angels." It will give you the "whole" story behind the building and the fire that nearly destroyed it. Restoration was a work of pure love and so well worth a visit, even if you're not an opera buff. Honestly, read the... More

The audio tour is great, and place is Beatiful. It's interesting as you get a good taste of the history of venice and the area.

We did the audio tour of the opera house. It costs €9 per person and you need to leave a passport as security against the handset. The tour is detailed but doesn't waffle on for too long. You start in the foyer and then move into the stalls of the theatre. If you want to take photos, it costs an... More

Brilliant experience! It's really important to book in advance (around 1 month) to be sure to have a place. The atmosphere is romantic. You feel like in an old movie. The new theater looks like the original.

We went in August when unfortunately there wasn't a show to see, but we went on a tour with audio guides and were able to go into the royal box and watch a rehearsal going on. This was a fascinating experience.

It is a very nice theatre. Wonderful finishings. It is worth going there. Unfortunately it has burned twice, the last one in 1996.

As a surprise during our stay in Venice, I took my girlfriend to her first opera at Teatro La Fenice. The Barber of Seville. She loved it. I think her mouth hung open the entire time. We went to a Sunday afternoon showing. Perfect place to go and see the opera.

We visited the Teatro Le Venice but sadly we did not time our trip so we could see a performance. I recommend that if you have a chance to view one of the performances. We got the audio tour and enjoyed it immensely. The theater is not big and you can do the tour in under an hour easily. Do... More

We went to visit La Fenice one morning and asked about the cost of a recital that evening.We were pleasantly surprised to be told that it was 20 euros.Whilst wandering around we met Monica Bacelli rehearsing and went back the same evening to hear her perform.The opera house is beautiful and the recital was excellent.

After reading John Berendt's City of Falling Angels, we had to see the Fenice. It was fun. A beautiful theater. We are sorry we couldn't see a production there.
