My husband and I went to see carmen opera. The theater was incredible but the opera was very bad. Carmen was modernized, so it was very bad. Even i paid with the black market 2 times more, i couldnt stay even for an hour. I left the opera.

This is a stunning building that clearly is a perfect venue for wonderful performances. The narrator and narrative of the audio guide are not good, too long-winded, mostly boring and a voice that (for me) was irritating. It's still worth visiting to see the theatre.

If you can not be there for a performance then for 10 Euros take the audio tour of this stunning gem and learn about it dramatic past and enjoy the splendour of this unique Opera House. You will need ID to take the audio handset but well worth it. The restoration has taken a long time but the result is... More

If you visit Venice and miss La Fenice, its like you havent been to Benice. Hostorically, this is one of the most important opera houses in world history with a very dramatic faith. Venice succeded rising up this architectural beauty twice from the ashes and today the theatre is at the top of its splendour. La Travoata, for example, was... More

Unforeseen visit to the Teatro la Fenice. For 10€ you can visit the theater with audio tour and learn the history of this magnificent building, that has been burned down 3 times. You can have a seat in the royal box and have the best view of the theatre. The tour also takes you to the other important rooms and... More

While not large like many other opera houses this one was luxurious. The audio tour was fantastic and all four of our children were delighted with every part of the tour. A very family friendly tourist stop. One to not pass by.

We came across this theatre whilst walking around Venice and decided to take a tour - very glad we did. The theatre was beautiful with a very interesting history. It was lovely to sit in the royal box and hear the sound of a harpist during practise. As well as the main theatre you can also see the myriad of... More

Thankfully Teatro La Fenice offers audio tours during the day for those of us without the deep pockets or the good timing for a performance. It costs 10 euros for the audio guide, plus a few extra euros for a photo pass. Yes, paying extra cash is a little galling, but La Fenice is such a lovely little gem that... More

A must-see for lovers of music, of Venice - or just lovers. The renovation after the fire that destroyed it is just astonishing. Great for people-watching, too!

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
