One of most famous opera's all over the world. House doesn't look well from outside and I didn't manage to get in due to renovation. But still it's definitely worth to see.

I actually had a different idea of this building before seeing it in real. It is not a big and glamorous building on the outside as one would imagine as for its popularity in people minds

And were able to go to the side door and get upper balcony tickets to a performance of Don Giovanni. for Eur 11 each! The La Scala Opera House is something that should not be missed when visiting Milan.

Had a evening event after a business meeting in this location and it was impressive. The old Teatro is a highlight to see in Milano, the inside is beautiful and a architectural highlight of its time.

Beautiful building which carries a great music history, if you think of all these people that have performed there. Ticket costs 9 EUROS .If you are lucky you can find people rehearsing but not during summer.
