My wife was really looking forward to returning to this theatre which she had visited in her teens. When we go there, the stage was (not unreasonably) in use for a practice session for an impending performance, which meant that visitors could not view the...More

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

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.
