    What to Expect
    Meet your knowledgeable local guide at La Scala Theater and get ready for an education in opera. This tour is a feast for the eyes and the mind, as your guide leads first through the theater's museum, regaling you with the history of the theater while being dazzled by the display of intricate costumes once worn on stage, musical instruments played by famous musicians and various stage props used in famed productions. See also painted portraits of some of the most famous composers and performers -- from Guiseppe Verde to Arturo Toscanini. Then spend some time in the museum bookshop browsing at books about opera, in general, and famous composers, in particular. 
    As you tour the theater and museum, you'll gain an appreciation of the amount of work that goes in to an opera production at this famed venue. 
    Book early to avoid missing out! La Scala is extremely popular and regularly sells out weeks in advance.

    So surprised how big the museum was and cheap €9. We didn’t go on a tour, but went at our own pace. Lots of information, films and interactive screens. We were so lucky they were rehearsing. So instead of going into the opera house we...More

    This trip was two hours long. Part of the reason was there were 50 or more people on the tour and it was done in English and French. So, it took twice as long. We got a peep at the opera house through a Plexiglass...More

    It’s not worth doing the tour. Just go to the museum on your own time and learn about the opera house that way.
