About Teatro Massimo, Palermo

If you want to explore the place where the final scene of the movie Godfather was shot, you have to visit Teatro Massimo. Dedicated to king Emanuel 2, this is the largest theatre in Italy and third largest in Europe. Renowned for its perfect acoustics, this theatre was constructed in late 19th century and is inspired by Sicilian architecture. The exterior is designed in neoclassical style incorporating elements from Greek temples and has 1350 seats with 7 tiers. The monumental staircases add to the charm of the structure and the shows and operas are worth catching.

  • We didn't actually get to go inside because there was a rehearsal happening. However, there were still tours available with a view from inside a dark room (a box office maybe? I can't remember the word they used). I appreciated that the tours were only 30 mins long as we didn't have much time and had our kids. So even though we didn't get to take a tour this time, it's totally possible to do in most circumstances. The outside alone deserves 5 stars and as we gazed up at the beauty of this theatre, our kind taxi driver told us there's a scene from The Godfather that was filmed here. Can you remember which one? :)

  • Belissimo! If you have the opportunity, do the tour inside. The shortest cost 8€ and you can see some amazing rooms.

  • This is one of the two teatres in Palermo. It is the biggest teatre in Italy located on a grand square. Impressive. I was there around Dec 31. There was a big video beam of the concerts of classical music given in the teatre by top artists. A majestic atmosphere in the city.

  • Performances are world class and reasonable. Try to avoid the gallery which is cheaper buy way too high. Acoustics are impeccable so try for a box along the sides - also reasonable but get a seat in the front. Operas tend to start early so plan carefully to eat beforehand.

  • One of most beautiful places to visit in Palermo. Nice square and great meeting zone.
