We spent around 200Eur and we do not regret it! Would definitely go again! Worth every penny! We got good seating and the sound was absolutely grand.

“Amazing atmosphere very bad sitting”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Was planning this trip with my wife to Milano half a year and my wife was dreaming about visiting La Scala. Bought tickets in boxes for 240 eur and the sight from box was not same as was shown on web while buying ticket. We were lucky that 2 other seats in box where empty so we could enjoy the whole view. But if the box is full and you are older its no chance to you to see something if you got back seats. I will definetly come back to there but now I know- if you cant afford good seats simply don't go there!!!! And that's sure!

“Beautiful Theatre”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

Went as part of a half day tour of Milan. The building isn't so interesting from outside but the actual theatre itself is certainly worth visiting. There is an interesting museum as well.

“Great show- crap seating”
Reviewed 15 November 2013 via mobile

Went to see Aida- Magnifico! One of the five must- things to do before you die. BUT staff are not friendly, seating is attrocious and seriously unconfortable, our box was unbelievably small- after nearly 4 hours of Opera I had a seriously sore back. During the pause the sandwiches on offer were very poor- I would have loved to eat some posh canapeés with salmon and caviar- nope! Had a cheese sandwich. If there is a next time, I will bring pain killers and my own food and ear plugs to overhear the imploite staff. To be improved
