Overall rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Such a beautiful theater! However, 5 stories and only one elevator (I was on crutches) led to us missing the last water bus. We went to see an opera by Verdi and were not disappointed by the grandeur of the theater -or by the acoustics. This is one of Italy’s most treasured theaters -for good reason! The seats in the boxes are a smidge uncomfortable for long periods of sitting -but no less uncomfortable than other theaters where you have to sit for long periods of time. Honestly, I was a little relieved to have a chair instead of one of the built-in seats that are so common. This allowed me to move and angle the chair for better viewing (we were on the side). I would definitely choose a side seat for this reason in the future (other seats within the theater did have built-in seats).

A brilliant opera venue; perhaps the best opera house in the World. The acoustics (at the three different places I sat in the Orchestra section) were excellent. Sight-lines are also good everywhere, although perhaps some of the usual problems in some of the boxes. The staff are friendly, efficient and plentiful. Interval drinks service excellent with speedy delivery and plenty of room to socialise. The productions are first rate with excellent casts. A true 5-Star opera house.

It is worth seeing the building from outside, but even more its interior, even when there is no performance. Get a guided tour and try to have it when the practice is in progress. If you can bear rather steep prices of tickets, go for it. Among the photograps should be my photograph of the prices for the 2017/18 season. I loved every moment!

Great theater with awesome detail everywhere you go. We liked that the stage rotated with multiple sets at once so they could streamline the opera more than usual. The only gripe was any drinks purchased had the be finished in the bar, so you had to rush to get back to your seats after intermission. I would love to see more shows here.

Beautiful theatre. A bit smaller than what I expected, which makes the experience more intimate. Tickets are very reasonably priced. Come for a concert if you have 1-2 hours in the evening. Much nicer experience than pushing/being pushed around tourists outside...

Since opening and being named La Fenice, it has burned and been rebuilt twice more. That's how the name defines a destiny of the place. Visit amazing opera here, one the best Opera Houses in the world

This is one of the city's best and most beautiful opera houses, and though it has seen lots of unfortunate events, it has been properly restored. Go on a 45-minute tour here to learn more.

Great visit and you can assist to the repetitions. Do not arrive too late otherwise you wont have access to certain rooms.

Amazing! Came just before new year and got an entirely free new year concert preview, with orchestra, chorus, and soloists!

What an opera house! What a performance! We watched from a box, Best to be in a box directly facing the stage to enjoy the performance the most.

La Fenice was burnt in 1996. Many of the most famous Verdi's operas were introduced there for the first time.

E’ il principale teatro lirico di Venezia. Su progetto e direzione di Giannantonio Selva, l’edificio fu costruito fra il 1790 ed il 1792, nonostante i divieti di costruzione esistenti in quell'epoca. Translate
