What people are saying about Scala Theater Museum

Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 865 reviews

The explanation was very good. It was a bit surprising that during the tour we visited only the museum and in order to see the theatre itself we had to come 2 hours after the tour because the concert or opera were not finished by the time of the tour. Occasionally we didn't have problems with that and we came at 16:30, but the were people in the group that had other plans and couldn't come again. I think such a scenario should be written in the tour description because I think most of the people that book this tour would like to see mainly the theatre.

The tour was fascinating-we could really picture what life was like during the golden age of opera. Our guide was informative and fun. We liked this tour more than we had anticipated. Even my Non-musician husband loved it.
