All reviews opera house guided tour beautiful building rubber barons amazing theatre free concerts interesting history amazon rainforest performance rehearsal acoustics architecture middle ballroom arts century dome
Pick up any travel book or search on the internet for things to do in Manaus and at the top of the list will be this opera house. It was constructed by the wealthy Brazilian rubber barons in 1884. Our tour guide said it was...More
We enjoyed our tour of the Teatro, which combines a history of the place and views of many of the floors. It takes a bit of time, between buying the tickets and waiting for the tour to start, as well as the tour itself. We...More
We took the tour and saw two different Christmas shows. It is pretty amazing to think that this was built in this remote location in the late 1800's. The rubber barons wanted to have the culture of Paris in Manaus, so almost all of the...More
The Teatro Amazonas will be on most people's list of places to see in Manaus because there is nothing quite like it in the whole of the city and it is a symbol of a bygone age. It was built in 1896 when Manaus was...More
Well they had “ too much $” so spend it on a ornate opera house then the $ stopped and it was abandoned: luckily it’s now in use and has never been renovated or modernized so it all original
And still beautiful
There was a ramp access to the side when we visited last February - not for a performance but my husband was able to get in to see the auditorium but maybe need to request special seats as we do in the uk anyway

I did the 4 day Inca Trail last May and the one thing I wished I had done was spend the night and go back the next morning to MP to look around again. By the time you hike from Winay Wayna to Machu Picchu via the Sun Gate you arrive around 8 or 9 am then you have a 2 hour tour, then you hike Huayna Picchu for 2 hours, then you leave on the 3 o'clock bus to catch the train. Stay in Aguas Calientes so you can spend some more quality time at Macchu Picchu, then take the bus to Ollantaytamboand...More

Santiago walking itinerary need help sorry so long. (7 Replies)
Hi We are on an organised tour but it does not do all of Santiago to my satisfaction only selected suburbs. We will not fit into any walking tour with the organised tour company's arrangements so have worked on an itinerary with the help of google and some other travel websites. I will post it below and I am sorry it is so long but it might be of use to others especially with some expert amendments and additions, would really appreciate some coffee and eat stops only cafe style not sit down...More

1. There is no funicular on the Cerro Santa Lucia. 2. When you come down Santa Lucia you will be on Merced. 3. I would suggest that you include the Biblioteca Nacional at the end of the walk. This would mean walking along the north side of the Alameda. 4. Huerfanos and Ahumada are pedestrian streets. There are lots of cafes along both of them. 5. You will find the centre very crowded so take care.
