“buying tickets”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Be VERY careful buying tickets on La Scala's website. We ordered two tickets in the stalls at 252 euros each. They were mailed to us. When we arrived at La Scala we discovered that the tickets we had been sent were actually for a box, four floors up with a view of only half the stage! There was no indication sent with the tickets to explain that we had not been successful in our choice of seats. Additionally we were sharing this box with three other people who had to peer over our shoulders to catch a glimpse of the stage - a very comfortable experience!.
Just buy the cd and save yourselves much frustration and expense.

“Amazing atmosphere very bad sitting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Was planning this trip with my wife to Milano half a year and my wife was dreaming about visiting La Scala. Bought tickets in boxes for 240 eur and the sight from box was not same as was shown on web while buying ticket. We were lucky that 2 other seats in box where empty so we could enjoy the whole view. But if the box is full and you are older its no chance to you to see something if you got back seats. I will definetly come back to there but now I know- if you cant afford good seats simply don't go there!!!! And that's sure!

“Beautiful Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Went as part of a half day tour of Milan. The building isn't so interesting from outside but the actual theatre itself is certainly worth visiting. There is an interesting museum as well.
