What a beautiful show. We had a great time despite not understanding italian. They give you a little summary of the story at the start which helps. The puppets are beautiful, the music is lovely. We felt like kids again.

We really enjoyed the show! We booked a private afternoon show that worked with our hours in port from the cruise ship. They charged 250E flat rate, and I got 5 or 6 other families to join us from the roll call of our cruise....More

This puppet theatre (& workshop) was well worth the trek to the port area from the centre of town tourism (in which lots of less authentic puppet shows are on offer). Tucked away behind the Ibis hotel in a fascinating little residential street we entered...More

We saw "La nascita di Orlandino" which chronicles an adventurous journey leading to the birth of Orlandino, Charlemagne's nephew. The show features dialogues, knights' fights and lots of different sceneries. This is like a trip into the past with spectators sitting on wooden benches in...More

Wow. A wonderful hour's entertainment with very highly skilled puppeteers. A translation of the story was provided but wasn't really needed. The skill is evident and captured children of all ages and adults alike. €10 per adult & €5 for each child. Well worth it...More

Visiting the puppet theatre was really nice, saw a show and had tour round the museum. Wonderful the way expertise is passed down from father to son. Worthy of a visit to support the association protecting this culture
