Perfect place for my first opera

I had never before attended an opera, so for my 2016 travels to Italy it was on my bucket list. I chose to get tickets for La Traviata at the Teatro La Fenice opera house in... read more

I gave this just average rating, as my experience was so mixed. On the one hand, the visit with audioguide was very good, and good value (especially as reduced for 'seniors'). However, I was very disappointed with the administration. I arrived at midday and was told (rather curtly) that visits started at 2pm. Fair enough (though where on earth is... More

I had never before attended an opera, so for my 2016 travels to Italy it was on my bucket list. I chose to get tickets for La Traviata at the Teatro La Fenice opera house in Venice. What a wonderful experience. The opera house is beautiful. The performance was well done. The English subtitles that were discreetly placed above the... More

There are so many words you could call Teatro La Fenice - Majestic, Incredible, Unique, Beautiful etc etc. We visited on New Years Eve and the whole experience was fantastic. I booked the cheapest seats in the house about 4 months prior to booking and I was a bit apprehensive of whether we were going to see the stage but... More

We went to a symphony concert there one evening and it was amazing ! The music was fantastic and the interior of the concert hall was just breathtaking! I know they do tours during the day and I'm unsure of how much they are but if you like architecture and music this is a great combo!

This was our second visit to this remarkable building in 3 years and you still find yourself engrossed with its beauty and history. We gained access via our Venice passes and we also got an audio guide - this is a must ! You also pay an additional 3 euros and this enables you to take photographs (without flash). They... More

The most resplendent Italian Theatre I have ever seen. Great history and it's name is The Phoenix in English, this is because it has risen from the Ashes 3 times. Well worth a trip.

The audio tour gives a great background to this 'phoenix' theatre. The history is fascinating. The staff though are pretty grumpy.

I didn't get a chance to see a concert here - but it's great that visitors are allowed to see the stunning building with an entrance fee. I was a little disappointed at paying an additional 3 euros for a photo pass when quite clearly everyone was allowed to take photos! You are able to listen to the history on... More

Visited end of Nov 2016, saw Wayne Marshall with a Symphony Orchestra. We were in central box #23, front seats. Great view, great seats, great experience. First of, this is the most beautiful theater I've ever seen in photos much less been in. Chose my seats based on reviews I read online. I would say the far right and far... More

Although completely rebuilt after the blaze (works finished in 2006) it has been made exactly as the temple of rococo it used to be. The visit, with audioguide, takes some 30-40 minutes, but is well worth the time and the price (some discount for families with children) as you enter one of the world temples of music. You can take... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
