I saw several performances of La Scala Ballet. Gorgeous, historic building. I recommend the center tiers, first row. It's worth the splurge for the great sight lines. Don't miss the adjacent history museum of the theater during the day.

My girlfriend and I saw the opera La Boheme, and it was a fantastic performance. We had very good tickets (which cost a small fortune...), and the overall experience was very good. An interesting history, really classy locations, and a spectacular performance. Highly recommended!

Everyone has heard of La Scala in Milan, but unless you're an avid opera lover,not sure there is much of interest. [Though these days, it is used for a multitude of other performances. ] Restaurant is pricey.

We saw the "The swan lake" at night 11th July. I had never seen a live ballet before. The place was Amazing. The ballet was moving and impressive. This may be once in a lifetime but it is definitely worth the price.

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon
of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds
to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria
Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high
quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch
expedition into a royal experience. Head to the
