I have wanted to see the interior of La Scala for as long as I can remember, museum was interesting and the interiors were impressive, The history of la Scala is so interesting. Day we went we had to hang around and extra hour to see the interiors as they had a lighting rehearsal that finished at 4 pm, this can be know to happen, it was worth the wait.
