The outside of the theatre is not impressive but the inside is magnificent. I was sitting way up in the second row from the top but my view was still good and the acoustics here are amazing. Try to book your seats well ahead of time. Tickets can be expensive and hard to get if you are close to your chosen date. La Scala was the highlight of my trip to Italy.

Be VERY careful buying tickets on La Scala's website. We ordered two tickets in the stalls at 252 euros each. They were mailed to us. When we arrived at La Scala we discovered that the tickets we had been sent were actually for a box, four floors up with a view of only half the stage! There was no indication sent with the tickets to explain that we had not been successful in our choice of seats. Additionally we were sharing this box with three other people who had to peer over our shoulders to catch a glimpse of the stage - a very comfortable experience!.
Just buy the cd and save yourselves much frustration and expense.

We spent around 200Eur and we do not regret it! Would definitely go again! Worth every penny! We got good seating and the sound was absolutely grand.

Was planning this trip with my wife to Milano half a year and my wife was dreaming about visiting La Scala. Bought tickets in boxes for 240 eur and the sight from box was not same as was shown on web while buying ticket. We were lucky that 2 other seats in box where empty so we could enjoy the whole view. But if the box is full and you are older its no chance to you to see something if you got back seats. I will definetly come back to there but now I know- if you cant afford good seats simply don't go there!!!! And that's sure!
