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.
