We had an informative tour by a lovely guide giving us lots of history of the building and those who performed here. Definitely should be included to any visit to Naples.

Opera Sancarlo is a very beautiful building. On the performance there were mostly local people. There is dress-code here, no shorts! There are even black suits with bow ties. The Opera house is one of the oldest in Europe. Everything is perfectly organized. Above the...More

Gift yourself, it is a must on your visit to Naples. We were lucky enough to catch show with perfect seats in a box in the grand circle which were very reasonably priced.

You see very little during the guided "tour" and what you hear you might as well read online. The opera hall is very beautiful for sure but you're better of saving your money for the opera tickets instead.

Yes, you might get lucky- we saw opera there in early January. And if not that, they do the Nutcracker ballet right thru the holiday season. We found that time of year to be quite busty in Naples- lots of Italian tourists
