Brief but beautiful look into the La Scala, including a photo op of the grand theater interior. The museum is full of portraits, instruments, and handwritten music notation from some of the great composers.

Our tour began on time. It was in English, as scheduled. The guide apologized to other enthusiasts that the tour was ENGLISH. He was an affable person, well versed, and had many anecdotes about La Scala. Worth the money, and time.
