There were no performances on whilst we were in Naples so we decided instead to take the guided tour. You buy tickets in the main box office, look to the left window. It was 5e each for over 65s and the tour lasted around 45...More

Memorable for all the right reasons. We were in a box on floor V, up in the gods, somewhat to one side but with a good view. The performances were superb; to pick out Violetta (Maria Mudryak) and Gastone (Orlando Polidoro) is to be unfair...More

Oldest Opera house in Europe. Get the tour, it is very interesting, you learn a lot, and see one of the greatest opera house in the world.

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
