We loved our front row seats to watch a brilliant performance of Tosca. This theatre takes your breath away when you enter, it really is stunning. Tickets bought online, and printed them off at home easily. The website was a bit difficult to navigate to choose our own seats, so I ended up getting the automatic seat selection (seat 9 and 11) for our 65Euro seats, but we loved being this close up, and having no heads to obscure the view. The only problem was to read the English translation up on the overhead screen we had to constantly look up which was a bit tricky, so if there is a next time I would probably take more time to navigate the site and choose a row a little further back! Of course if you speak Italian the translations would not be a problem. The orchestra was amazing, and being in the front we could look over the barrier and see them before and after the performance, as well as enjoying the great sounds. Two 20 minute intervals, long queues for the few toilets (be quick) but just long enough to pop outside to the icecream shop across the roundabout and enjoy some gelato (finished before going back inside as it's not allowed in). Overall a wonderful treat for our stay in Naples, and well worth the money for good seats!

the history of the building itself was the focus of the tour and it was in both italian and english with the italian being primarily spoken. so somewhat disappointing. the opera house itself is apparently the oldest still operating as such in italy...

The restoration has brought this historical landmark up to the present with all the trappings of it's glorious past.

Beautiful building, I can imagine a wonderful experience if I attended a performance. However, this was just a guided tour completely spoilt by the piano tuner plying his craft whilst we were there, trying but failing to hear the commentary. I thought he could have waited a few minutes until the tour leader had described the details and history. Even worse, it was a paid tour. Maybe readers might like to ask if there are any distractions, prior to buying their guided tour tickets. The tour leader carried on as if nothing was wrong.
