While in Venice my friend and I took an audio tour of La Fenice. I almost didn't do the tour but I'm so glad I did. An amazing building with such an interesting and dramatic history- especially when you consider the meaning of the name,...More

Good activity on a wet day as it is all indoors. The guide was well informed about its history and engafed the interest of the group. The Opera house is magnificent and has whetted our appetite for some Opera!

Dont hesitate to go even one hour before or as soon as they open the doors. Like this you have a moment to walk around as well.
