Teatro La Fenice Tour in Venice

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Explore Venice’s Teatro La Fenice on a 1-hour walking tour and discover its history, architecture and decadent décor! Translating as ‘the phoenix’ in Italian, La Fenice has mirrored the mythical bird by rising from the ashes of two fires over the course of its history. Now restored to its 18th-century glory, the famous opera house boasts a jaw-dropping interior that has to be seen to be believed. Walk around the plush auditorium and royal box, and hear the history of this iconic Italian opera venue from a local guide.

What to Expect
Start at Campo San Luca in central Venice, where you meet your guide and group. Walk to the theater, passing through Venice’s characteristic narrow streets. Arrive and enter, admiring the theater’s baroque décor, gilded boxes, and velvet seats. Walk through the theater while your guide tells you about noteworthy performances and famous singers and musicians. Learn about the separate fires that burned the theater to the ground and the subsequent restoration that gave the theater its name, which means “phoenix” in Italian. Spend ample time with your guide, asking any question you might have about the theater and its history. Finish the tour just outside the theater entrance.

Tour guide is hard to understand. Tour is short. Didn’t gain in depth information. I saw few groups of people listened in to the audio tour instead and seemed to enjoy themselves. Maybe that is a better choice. The worst part is that you have to meet up at the tour company

Response from RacheleSacco, Direttore at Teatro La Fenice Tour in Venice
Responded 24 Oct 2019
Dear npkras, We apologise for any inconvenience you had to face. However, the meeting point is at the Bucintoro Viaggi travel agency strictly 15 minutes before the departure of the tour where you need to collect the actual ticket of the tour (info written before and after the purchase of the voucher) and NOT at the entrance of the theatre, as you describe. The tour started on time and was run regularly. We are sorry you missed it. Best regards,

There is no arguing the Theater is beautiful. I found the tour quite short and possibly could have been replaced with a cheaper audio guide. However, being in personalized tour group did allow us access to less congested areas of the theater, this was worth paying for. As with
