The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Going to the opera, wow, this was special. Verdi’s “I Lombardi alla prima crocera”. Never heard of it so did some prep prior to coming to Venice and the music sounded glorious, and indeed it was simply splendid when heard in the most beautiful opera house. The interior was decoratively outstandingly beautiful.
The only hiccough was the interval. We missed a glass of Prosecco because we did not understand the local system to obtain your drink. First you needed to find the till which was not by the bar. You pay at the till, keep your receipt and then queue up at the bar and show your receipt to a barman who then prepares your drink. We of course queued for a while and when we tried to order at the bar we’re told to go to the till, get a receipt and return. Irritating but in the scheme of things only mildly so.
Yes, it’s expensive and it’s a treat but it’s a one-off and so worthwhile. So glad we took a risk, the memory will be for life.

Even though we were up on the top floor we still enjoyed great views of tge opera performance. The interior of the theatre is quite stunning and worth the price of the operations tickets alone.

The free standing seats were comfortable and moveable and the toilets were clean and modern.

We have tickets to the opera for September 2022. I am sharing seating and visibility information that might be helpful to others. Information was obtained directly from Venice Opera via email.

Seats are placed one behind another and are NOT staggered. Rows AF-AA seats are in the orchestra pit, hence they are situated below stage level.
Rows A - F at at stage level
Visibility from row G through N is very good. Row L is the best row in the orchestra section as there is a large gap between Rows I and L. Rows J and K are removed.

Balcony boxes are good seats as long as you get center boxes. Also, only the first row of balcony boxes has visibility to the stage. 2nd Rows are much cheaper due to visibility issues.

We could not find tickets for row L (not a surprise!) and got tickets for the first row in the 2nd balcony, center boxes.

IMHO, if you are going to Venice Opera one time, might as well, get the best seat possible. I've heard so much about the hall...can't wait for the performance. I will update my review with pictures from our seat for your reference later in October 2022.

This is a review for a tour with audio guide - not a performance. It was a genuine pleasure to be able to tour this beautiful theatre. I enjoyed the audio guide (make sure you bring ID to be able to pick up an audioguide). This theater is Legendary for a reason - the interiors truly are beautiful. Cafe was also very nice.

We attended a concert at La Fenice (Brahms and Buckner) our last night in Venice. The music was excellent, but the facility was breathtaking. A wonderful farewell to Italy. If you can see a performance here, by all means do so; if you cannot, at least tour the facility.

We spent two weeks in Italy & this was truly my highlight 😊 it‘s just so beautiful that it really blew my mind. Definitely take the audioguides and wander around. We were lucky enough to see / hear a rehearsal going on. Even after a day of walking around in Venice this place feels like an oasis. We had the VenezisUnics Card and there the entry was included. We can only recommend this place!

I was lucky to visit in the afternoon when the cast of Faust was rehearsing their opera performance. The theatre is historic and magnificent, coupled with the opportunity to enter a box and view the rehearsal....this experience was fantastic.

Sitting in the chairs, looking at the opulence....a once in a lifetime experience. Touring the building makes you feel like you're a time traveler
