We visit this beautiful theater and if you are an Opera or theater liver you must visit this place. Look for the bathroom they use in that time and what they did I'd something amazing happen while using it.... Until my next review.

What a huge surprise! Astonishing when you realise that this has been here since 1791 in pretty much the same form as it is today. With few concessions to luxury, it opens a window on the unsophisticated (to us) entertainment that was then the height...More
