What You Can Expect
Meet your guide at the centrally located Campo San Luca for a short walk to the theater. Inside, marvel at the lavish Baroque decor as you imagine the gilded private boxes and lush velvet seats filled with an admiring, well-dressed crowd. You’ll learn about famous performances and hear stories of the legendary musicians, singers and patrons that passed through the auditorium’s walls.
The ill-fated theater burned to the ground on two separate occasions and has been returned to its former splendor by painstaking restoration work. The name ‘La Fenice’ means ‘phoenix’ in Italian — a fitting moniker for this icon that has twice risen from the ashes. Learn about the multimillion dollar renovation and ask any burning questions before bidding ciao to the theater at the end of your tour.
Definitely a must see! This is a magnificently restored opera house which has a very interesting history.
Find out the story abut the fire that was deliberately set in 1996.
Well worth going on. Our charming knowledgable guide gave us a entertaining and interesting insight into the history of this beautiful building.
Beautiful building, wonderful history, informative guide. We are no opera goers but appreciated the workmanship and history of this beautiful piece of Venice history. It was very private as only one other couple was on the tour with us.
EXQUISITE THEATER! I DEFINITELY PLAN TO COME BACK TO VENICE TO ENJOY A VERDI OPERA
The guide was very informative and we never felt rushed. We had a long time to view the house from the boxes.
It is a nice trip.
Loved the place! Thanks.
