La Fenice is the cosy, opulent Opera House of Venice. You breath Venice in here. It's cosy, it's rich, but yet secluded, hidden and unexpected. Facilities are not top notch, I would say understated and cold... Still it takes you back in time, with less...More

Worth the money for the tour if you can't get a ticket for a performance. There's an audio commentary and I have to say it's a bit condescending and naff, but I loved being able to look around.

Yes, you need to by a ticket and then go to the bar to collect your drink and it is very busy, so buy before is good advice. Have a great time, it is a wonderful theatre.
