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).

Awesome opera house. Get there early to soak up the atmosphere. 2018 production of The Merry Widow was outstanding.

Beautiful! The self-service audio guide device works brilliantly. Alternatively, visitors can also download the audio app to listen on their smartphone but some visitors were indecent enough to put their smartphone on loudspeaker which disturbed me. Maybe the facility management can communicate this to visitors.

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.

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.

Such an iconic and important teather. Don't miss out on the opera season here. No need to book in advance for an audio guide tour which will last 50 minutes circa. Price €10 enjoy!!

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

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

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.

Loved the show and experience, take seats that are on the second or third floor for best sight

The audioguide is free and students get a 1/3 reduction :-)

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.

The theatre was given the Phoenix name in honor of the mythical bird that rose from the ashes.
