A great place to visit and easily accessible in the city centre near the Stendahl hotel. There is so much space and plenty to see to satisfy a variety of tastes.

Quite a awe inspiring place. Did not expect the size of a theater. Good place to spend half an hour. In the middle of the city

In the theatre there is just one place to stand and view, you can't wander around. It is an amazing space, oval shaped and made of wood with a proscenium stage at one end. It's a great... More

We saw an excellent opera performance here. I think they give tours of the opera house but do yourself a favor and see an opera there.

The Teatro Farnese is an impressive to see old Theatre, in 2018 it will be 400 years old, yes that is old and still functional. So this itself is impressive especially as you can see also how it is build from the back. But on top of that you can visit the National Gallery style that in London would attrack... More

The theater is amazingly beautiful, I wish we could experience a performance there! All wood, very well reconstructed, after that it was almost completely destroyed in 1944...

A work of art in itself. Stunning craftsmanship. When I visited, visitors were restricted to a small viewing area but one could still see and appreciate the woodwork around the theater, just not up close. I'd love to see a performance here.
