Overview

Explore Venices Teatro La Fenice on a 1-hour walking tour and discover its history, architecture and decadent dcor! Translating as the phoenix in Italian, La Fenice has mirrored the mythical bird by rising from the ashes of two fires over the course of its history. Now restored to its 18th-century glory, the famous opera house boasts a jaw-dropping interior that has to be seen to be believed. Walk around the plush auditorium and royal box, and hear the history of this iconic Italian opera venue from a local guide.

Know More about this tour

Meet your guide at Campo San Luca in central Venice, and then stroll the short distance to Teatro La Fenice, one of the most legendary opera houses in Italy. Follow your guide inside the historical building and discover its history on your 1-hour tour.

Opened amid much hype at the end of the 18th century, the theater house quickly became the place for affluent Venetians to gather, gossip and gamble against a hubbub of opera music. Performances by European maestros such as Bellini, Rossini, Verdi and Wagner regularly took place inside Teatro La Fenice and the theater grew an avid following of locals and visitors alike.

Hear how the theater was razed to the ground by fire on not just one but two occasions, and marvel at the multi-million dollar renovations that have restored it to its former Baroque glory. Bold aqua-colored walls frame glittering gold balconies, and the theater seems to drip with grandiose ornamentation. Ogle the ornate dcor and furnishings of the auditorium, visit the royal box, and walk along the rows of plush seats while imagining a cacophany of opera music around you.

After an hour of exploring the theater and hearing its history, exit the building to finish your tour.

    Un teatro che merita di essere visitato, si respira la storia della musica, nonostante sia stato ricostruito più volte mantiene intatto il fascino il originale.

    Excellent, informative guide showed us round this beautiful theatre. There was more to see thx. I thought there would be.,

    Miss Alicia was a good guide; the visit was pleasant. It was not a good idea to mix two languages guide in a tiny group because that makes the visit redundant.

    La présentation très explicite et dit de très belle façon personne courtoise et intéressante et s’assurait que tous avait bien compris

    Excellent guide! Unfortunate to not have a glimpse of the orchestra pit or backstage areas to really appreciate the workings of a class concert venue.

    The tour that i paid for and received a confirmation email for and a ticket for never happened. I waited for over twenty minutes after the scheduled start time, smack in front of the Teatro (there is only one entrance), and no tour guide showed up. I called the number provided for questions and it was answered by a long recording, all in Italian. There was no notification that the tour would be cancelled. And getting a refund online from the TripAdvisor website is an exercise in futility. Very unsatisfactory all the way around.

    Quite a fancy theatre but wish we went in the season when they are performing. Lots of history in this theatre.

    Our guide didn’t turn up. We rung 5 times & waited 45 minutes but to no avail. We did however later contact Viator who promised us a refund. Very disappointed.
