  • Tour La Scala, one of Italy's most impressive and important opera houses with a knowledgable guide
  • See paintings, statues, beautiful objects and furniture and learn the history of La Scala and the famous operas performed there
  • Get a view of the theater and the stage from the boxes

If all you know of opera is a few 80s songs, a phantom, and a crashing chandelier, come and learn more at La Scala in Milan. Tour this magical opera house, learn about the greatest performers, and see an amazing collection of art and musical instruments in the museum.

As one of the country's (and let's be honest: the world's) most important opera houses, La Scala is perhaps even more beautiful and romantic than any church or cathedral!

Join your guide for a fascinating tour of this iconic building and see where the premieres of works by Rossini, Puccini, and Italy’s beloved Verdi were performed. Take in the opulent decor, the old-world, red velvet theater boxes, and seating for 3000.

Then get a view that only performers usually get - stand on the stage and look out at the entire theater!

In La Scala's Theatre Museum, you'll discover a collection of antique costumes and musical instruments, plus furniture, statues and a gallery of portraits and busts depicting famous musicians and their stories.

Enjoy your whole visit; remember, it's not over until the fat lady sings.
