Amazing place, full of history (no like Rome, but is similar)... opera presentations are so beautiful, give you chills! You MUST GO there!

This is a gem of history. There is an admission fee but not all that busy when I visited. You can sit in the seats, climb up to the top and get really cool views of the city.

Went to watch Carmen - absolutely spectacular! The whole show and experience was great. We sat on the stone seats, grand but definitely buy a cushion outside. Small bottles of water and small snacks will be allowed in. Drinks in the arena are not surprisingly...More

It depends on when and why you are visiting. For a daytime visit Dan is right. For the opera, people dress according to where they are sitting: formal dress in the expensive seats, smart casual further back.
