What You Can Expect

Teatro La Fenice Tour in Venice

Hear the history of this majestic theater from a local guide!

Originally built in the late 18th century, the opulent Teatro La Fenice opera house enjoyed many years as a gathering place for Venice’s cultural elite. Discover the venue’s fascinating history on this 1-hour guided tour.
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.

Nice Friendly young Italian girl was our guide and she was very knowledgable about the history of the theater. One lady had tired legs and was not able to go about our pace but the guide was very patient and kind.
