Bought this through the VeniceUnica card as an option and it was great. The actual theater is very nice, the remainder is a bit sparse and perhaps less elegant. Considering it was completely rebuilt in 1996 due to total arson, I suppose there is any...More

A very enjoyable experience. But take care where you sit as the majority of the boxes have blind spots of varying size.

It’s a splurge but well worth it. The theater is beautiful and there really isn’t a bad seat in the house. We saw La Traviata and it was performed to perfection. Not sure I would go without the performance piece.

Not worth the extra 10 euros. Give a donation to the non-profit org., or buy something in the gift shop. For 10 Euros, you can enter and receive a more extensive audio tour. There are NO lines.

A beautiful and worth to be seen theatre in the heart of Venice! The entry ticket is just few euros and you’ll get the free guide on a phone with lots of languages! Very beautiful inside!

It is well worth going to a show here. The theatre is truly beautiful with intricate gold detailing - a stunning place to watch a good concert. We’ve been a few times and never fail to be impressed.

It is depending on the show itself. Assuming a regular opera, you may book at 9:30 -10 . The best tip is to check with the restaurant itself as they know the best timing as you are not the only one to book after the show... More
