Teatro alla Scala FAQs

A basic entry ticket for Teatro alla Scala allows you to wander (almost) freely around Milan's historic old opera theater (you can usually buy tickets up until the last minute).

You'll also be able to download an audio guide to your phone, so you won't miss a historical nugget or any operatic anecdotes.

Top tip: Download the audio guide in advance so you can get straight into the action without connecting to the La Scala WiFi network!

Tickets for guided tours of La Scala are available regularly, and it's probably the best way to explore this incredible building, which is known as one of the world's great opera houses.

Learn about the greatest performers and legendary shows, and see an amazing collection of art and musical instruments in the museum. All the while you'll have an expert, English-speaking guide available to colour in Teatro alla Scala's fascinating history (it wasn't always plain sailing, that's for sure).

La Scala has played host to the best of the best in the opera world for hundreds of years, and throughout that time they've built up a collection of valuable artifacts.

From delicate old instruments used on stage to antiques and donated art, there's plenty to pore over inside La Scala Museum. You'll also find temporary exhibitions on the second floor, which are included with your La Scala tickets.

Opera and history might not be your go-to entertainment options for the kids, but don't rule out a family trip to La Scala just yet. Your basic entry ticket includes a treasure hunt that the children will love, and it's a great way to introduce them to subjects that they'll come to appreciate later down the line!
