Owner description: This world famous opera house, burned to the ground in 1996, has been rebuilt amongst much scandal and drama: its modern beauty and complex history ensure its place among the most celebrated monuments in Italian history.

La Fenice has an amazon history that is symbolic of Venice as a whole. Searching for it was half the fun and the audio guide is really interesting and informative

I was surprised to be among only about 10 people visiting this beautiful theater. The crowd in Piazza San Marco made me claustrophobic and it was a perfect retreat to enjoy the magnificence of the theater on a hot summer day.

The walk around using the head phones was interesting and very informative.
Sensational history.
The private rooms were a revelation of how the theatre goers in the know live.

On my own, I probably wouldn't have considered visiting here but I was with my daughter who is a mezzo soprano and lives for her opera. Once inside I was awestruck. With your admission, you get an electronic device for listening to an explanation of each of the places that you stop on your tour through the building. After hearing about 4 of the recordings at different stops you begin the realize the details in the design. The considerations for appearance, acoustics and for accommodating over 1000 patrons must have taken forever. If I recall correctly, the most recent renovation took 1 million man hours to complete. The building is quite beautiful inside and it has preserved some of the original structure from its beginnings around 1800. You won't be disappointed.
