This is a renaissance style theatre that dates back to the 16th century. The highlight of this theatre is the stage design. It depicts a scene of a long street that is visible from the horizon. It is the oldest surviving stage till date. The theatre has been a part of the UNESCO World Heritage since 1994. The interiors also have nice decorations of old lamps and antiques on the walls and facade. It is one historic place which takes you back in time.

It is simply outstanding, the first indoor theatre of the world. I could sit in the grades and look at the stage for ages! It is simply a masterpiece. The last work of Palladio who died before completion.
There is an audiovisual show here to introduce the theatre. This remains an amazing sight in my view and the only thing missing is that you can't walk on the stage😁. People are allowed in in batches so take this into account when calculating time. You can longer a little afterwards to really look.
A great place to take a quick trip to. The Theatro doesn't look that impressive when you look at it from the outside, but it really is on the inside. The Theater has an optical illusion built in that you think its more than 50 feet deep, but in reality its just more than 10-12 feet. The Tickets are pretty cheap and there aren't much tourists there. It's still a national treasure in Italy you gotta visit. I sincerely recommend it!
Much better then.last time 15 years ago and it was nice then...
Definitely worth a visit. Staff very friendly.... what a nice surprise!
