We visited this out of the way theatre as part of an opera tour, watching, not singing, and was amazed at the opulence of this theatre. We saw 'La Boheme', which I had not seen before, however, the opera aficionados in the group, some of whom had seen ten other productions, all declared it was by far the best production.... More

An amazing interior steeped in history. The audio guide was an ideal tour for our family with 2 teenagers, just enough information but not too long. Highly recommended

We found La Fenice quite by accident even though it was on our list of things to do. This place is simply stunning with so much beautiful detailing that it is hard to take in. I would have loved to have seen a performance here for the full experience. I was really impressed with the self guided tour that is... More

We visit the opera house early on a Sunday morning. It's was amazing place which was made better by the rehearsals going on, on the stage which we watched from the royal box

I visited the theatre for a tour and to see it and hear the history of such a magnificent building was most enjoyable and something I would definitely recommend.

La fenice is a beautiful building but it is not worth buying the ticket to do the tour unless you are desperate to see it. On the tour you don't see anything other than what you would see if you were visiting to watch a show so I recommend that you put the money towards seeing a show at la... More

It is one of the most important concert halls in Italy.It is fabulous.If you can't have the chance to watch a concert or opera you can visit the building and you may be lucky to have the opportunity to watch a rehearsal.

Just a beautiful place and a fascinating story. Recommend the audio guide which you can get for no extra charge if you leave some form of id e.g. driving licence. It fills in all the detail behind the building and re-building of a wonderful venue. If and when I'm lucky enough to revisit Venice I'll try to get to an... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
