We had a great tour of La Scala and the museum. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and spoke very good English. We were able to look down into the seating area and hear a little during a rehearsal for a performance that night. The museum has some very interesting artifacts and photos, which we really enjoyed. Altogether, a highly recommended tour.
The tour was extremely interesting and informative. Getting to see part of a full orchestra rehearsal was a special treat. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered many questions from those of us on the tour. I highly recommend this tour.
Very complete tour. The guide was great. We enjoyed it very much.
As a classical music/opera lover, I thoroughly enjoyed the La Scala tour. The museum has many historical music instruments, photos and artefacts. The theatre is amazing. The guide gave an interesting and comprehensive coverage of the history of the building, featured composers, artists, etc.
Definitely a must see for anyone interested in opera,and a very good guide who was very knowledgeable who said her grandfather used to sit in the top row of scala.You will have to do the tour to understand the relevance of the last comment.Cant recommend highly enough this tour.
I really enjoyed my visit to La Scala. The guide was so helpful especially when one of my party was late arriving. She told the office of the late arrival and my friend was able to join us when she arrived. We were given so much interesting information and were taken into one of the boxes so we could see the auditorium. The interior of the theatre is magnificent.
The tour guide was absolutely excellent. Very informative and very unstuffy and funny as well. Would have liked to have seen more of the actual theatre as the tour does not take you back stage but the tour guide was worth the money we paid.
Our guide was wonderful. Very thorough and knowledgeable and paced the visit well. We were able to peek inside the actual performance area of the theater even though there was a full dress rehearsal going on, so it was great to be able to see the sound and light crew at work, the full orchestra performing, and the artists on stage singing. Of course it would be nice to be inside and get the full-on La Scala submersion, but if you want that, you'll need to buy a ticket to a performance! Our guide also gave us access to the area just outside the entry doors where only private parties are held now, so we were able to take photos with busts of many famous composers. Her guided tour of the museum was well worthwhile as she explained many details you would miss seeing it on your own. We applaud her stamina and patience with the group. Well worth the price!
A very interesting tour that was really worthwhile. Our guide was very friendly and charming and had loads of interesting facts to tell. The Scala itself is stunning especially when you are standing in one of the red boxes looking down on the stage.
