One of the most famous opera houses in the world, La Scala is a beautiful venue. Attending, especially Italian opera, is a spiritual, cultural, immersive experience. The experience really cannot be adequately described. Don't forget to visit the "in-house" museum and gift shop!

Is a place MUST see. Is breath-taking when you enter in the main hall. The view from the balcony is gorgeus.

It was 2012 when I travelled for first time in Europe. My fisrt visit was Milan. To be in La Scala was trully magical if anyone consider that I took courses in ballet when I was young. The museum is absolutely must..especially the room which has stuff of Maria Callas. I had the opportunity to take a ticket for 10... More

An absolutely stunning production of Madame Butterfly had me sobbing. You need to make sure you have god seats, which are extremely expensive, but it is worth it. What a wonderful setting and incredible performances.

Nice visiting but the price of 7 € per person was to much.If you are in 10 person group the price is reduced for 5€.You can see it for 20 min and is beside duomo cathedral in milan city.

We went in to see this Opera House because we joined a guided tour, it was good, well kept with some displays of the old instruments and pictures relevant to the Italian Opera history. The interior of the Opera House is nice, but not as nice as the Palais Garnier in Paris.

Stopped here on a tour. Walked right in with tour, no line. Was neat to go into the box seats and look around. Didn't see a show, just a tour stop. Restrooms were available.

Dear all, I do highly recommend La Scala to all the opera/ballet lovers. If you wish to visit Romeo and Juliette on the 30.12.16, I have one ticket (Box Category 3, row 13, seat 6). Eticket gives a whole scene view, I cannot use it as have changed my travel plans.

Staying in Brera

Neighbourhood Profile
Brera
Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an excellent mix between history and modernity, where tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca (galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to admire the architecture of buildings and the design stores. On Sundays, going to the local market is an unmissable opportunity for fashion, style and art. Tucked away, there is the Orto Botanico di Brera botanical garden that seems like a painting framed in an ancient fairy structure. Last but not least, it’s worth a visit to Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli with its Planetarium, the Civico Museo di Storia Naturale (Natural History Museum).
