Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 in the heart of Rome. The name Margherita was a clear homage to Margherita of Savoia, King Umberto's first wife. Here typical vaudeville shows were presented to flaunt more luxury and refinement than in any theatre in Rome. In the '10s, the best comedians and the most searched soubrettes of the age appeared in the playbill of the theatre and, throughout the past century, it has been a theater attached to the revue, Roman comedy, vaudeville show and operetta. Since 2011 I Virtuosi dell'opera di Roma performed here an important part of their Concert's Season.

We went to the Opera in Rome. Saw "La Traviata", that is about all you can see after going here. Opera lovers stay away. This is made just for tourists. Don't get me wrong, the principle voices are good and strong... but the acting, staging...More

I love opera, so I reserved tickets to La Traviata because I wanted to experience Italian opera. The venue is pretty and intimate and easy to get to via public transport (very close to Spagna station). However, a complementary bowl of pasta (???) and gelato...More

The elegance of this venue is unique and I would recommend highly. Well worth the money to sit in your own balcony for show and five course dinner. Takes you back in time where people dressed opulently and held theatre glasses. Amazing architecture. Stained glass...More

We heard "La Traviata" there, good performance and very interesting hall - intimate (about 200 seats) and unique late 19 century decoration.

Try to get tickets for the show that include dinner in a box upstairs. For 90 euros per head you get your own box for the evening and a really pleasant 4 course meal. The wine isn't too expensive (around 20-30 euros per bottle). La...More

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
