Several times destroyed by fire and reborn like its namesake bird, the La Fenice is one of the best among the many Venice jewels. We were not able to attend a performance there, since no opera was being performed those days, but just visiting it...More

This is a beautiful theater and I highly recommend taking in an opera here if you have the chance. It's not cheap, but the musicianship on display was fantastic and the acoustics from my seat in the orchestra section were pristine.

Apparently this was rebuilt to look exactly as it did before it burned. Boxes are problematic for viewing the stage, if you are not in the front seats. We saw a spectacular Madama Butterfly there. English super titles along with the Italian ones!

We were able to turn up and pay for a trip. A good choice on a rainy day, and the catering is not expensive by Venetian standards
