We had a lovely guide. The hall is spectacularly beautiful. We learned a great deal of Naples history as well as the history of the theatre. A delightful way to spend an hour.

I have the opportunity to travel a lot to work, I think that Napoli is one of the most special city of the world. Food, art, culture and likeable people. This is the excellent Teatro.
