About
Travelers on sightseeing tours often have to pack in as many sights as possible, foregoing in-depth, authentic encounters in the process. Skip generic overviews for an hourlong tour of La Fenice, an opera house that was once the heart of Venetian high society and the golden age of Italian opera. Stop at the auditorium and royal box, admire the baroque architecture, and learn about the theater’s resilient history. Plus, a small-group tour means your guide will have time to answer any questions you might have.

  • Come away with authentic knowledge of the theater
  • Small-group tour ensures your guide's personal attention
What to expect
  • Start at Campo San Luca in central Venice, where you meet your guide and group. Walk to the theater, passing through Venice’s characteristic narrow streets. Arrive and enter, admiring the theater’s baroque décor, gilded boxes, and velvet seats. Walk through the theater while your guide tells you about noteworthy performances and famous singers and musicians. Learn about the separate fires that burned the theater to the ground and the subsequent restoration that gave the theater its name, which means “phoenix” in Italian. Spend ample time with your guide, asking any question you might have about the theater and its history. Finish the tour just outside the theater entrance.

Worth seeing
Our guide was very articulate and knowledgeable about the Teatro and it’s history. It is magnificent. Would be fun to attend a performance.

Dear bonniel912, thank you so much for this great review! La Fenice Theatre is one of the most beautiful theatres in the world, rich in history other than music. We really recommend to go to the opera next time if you have the chance! Thank you for choosing Bucintoro Viaggi during your stay in Venice! We hope to see you again, Best regards

Not worth it
Dec 2019 • Family
Tour guide is hard to understand. Tour is short. Didn’t gain in depth information. I saw few groups of people listened in to the audio tour instead and seemed to enjoy themselves. Maybe that is a better choice. The worst part is that you have to meet up at the tour company rather than in front of the theater. That is for the benefit of the company rather than for the benefit of the customers. You have to walk few blocks and find it or you will miss it. Not cool.

Missed Tour
Oct 2019
Had arranged, through Trip Advisor, to take a tour of the historic Opera House in Venice, Teatro La Fenice. Arrived at the site 15 minutes before. When no guide or group arrived by 1 pm, my wife and I entered the theater and asked the Box Office agent "what happened to our tour?" We were advised that the guide should arrive in a moment. Didn't happen. Then we were told to go to the Agency that had sold the tour, which was in a nearby Piazza. We went there and were told that tour had left already. The agent on site was unable to reach the tour guide by phone.
We went back to Teatro La Fenice and purchased their tour. The Opera House was wonderful
Trip Advisor should arrange a refund for us.

Dear npkras, We apologise for any inconvenience you had to face. However, the meeting point is at the Bucintoro Viaggi travel agency strictly 15 minutes before the departure of the tour where you need to collect the actual ticket of the tour (info written before and after the purchase of the voucher) and NOT at the entrance of the theatre, as you describe. The tour started on time and was run regularly. We are sorry you missed it. Best regards,

There is no arguing the Theater is beautiful. I found the tour quite short and possibly could have been replaced with a cheaper audio guide. However, being in personalized tour group did allow us access to less congested areas of the theater, this was worth paying for. As with all places in Venice, all the attractions are usually crowded. Perhaps pick your time of day and that way you can get the cheaper audio guide without the crowds.

Tour of La Fenice theatre, Venice
Oct 2018 • Couples
Very informative tour of one hour. Guide Elisa was excellent, as was her English and French. But the tour operator, Bucintoro Viaggi, was most unhelpful with my wife's infirmity and wouldn't guarantee meeting at La Fenice instead of their office to save her too much walking. In the event, we had to seek out the tour guide at La Fenice otherwise we would have missed the tour.

Live performance
Sep 2018
Perfect setting and evening. I reviewed the theatre last year without seeing a live performance. This visit I saw the Barber of Seville which was great. Sertes are in Italian and English. Tickets can be difficult to get unless you book well ahead. Live opera in this refurbished theatre brings everything to life. It was rebuilt following the third fire in 1999 to a high standard. There is a well stocked bar but you pay the cashier in the foyer first and take your receipt to the bar staff. The settings are great and we had a box which was great. If you are in Venice and like opera you will not be disappointed. Have fun!

La Boheme in a jewel box
Mar 2018 • Friends
La Fenice on the bucket list! Lovely performance of La Boheme in this jewel
box of a theatre. Great seats in the second row of the stalls - well you can't take
it with you! Just a wonderful experience in a remarkable building rebuilt after
the fire.
