Teatro La Fenice Tour in Venice

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Explore Venice’s Teatro La Fenice on a 1-hour walking tour and discover its history, architecture and decadent décor! 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.
  • Rather than just passing by, spend an hour at La Fenice Theater
  • Learn about the theater’s resilient history, famous performances, and lavish architecture
  • Come away with authentic knowledge of the theater
  • Small-group tour ensures your guide's personal attention
What to Expect
Start at Campo San Luca in central Venice, where you meet your guide and group. Walk to the theater, passing through Venice’s characteristic narrow streets. Arrive and enter, admiring the theater’s baroque décor, gilded boxes, and velvet seats.
Walk through the theater while your guide tells you about noteworthy performances and famous singers and musicians. Learn about the separate fires that burned the theater to the ground and the subsequent restoration that gave the theater its name, which means “phoenix” in Italian.
Spend ample time with your guide, asking any question you might have about the theater and its history. Finish the tour just outside the theater entrance.

Very informative tour of one hour. Guide Elisa was excellent, as was her English and French. But the tour operator, Bucintoro Viaggi, was most unhelpful with my wife's infirmity and wouldn't guarantee meeting at La Fenice instead of their office to save her too much...More

Perfect setting and evening. I reviewed the theatre last year without seeing a live performance. This visit I saw the Barber of Seville which was great. Sertes are in Italian and English. Tickets can be difficult to get unless you book well ahead. Live opera...More
