Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 in the heart of Rome. The name Margherita was a clear homage to Margherita of Savoia, King Umberto's first wife. Here typical vaudeville shows were presented to flaunt more luxury and refinement than in any theatre in Rome. In the '10s, the best comedians and the most searched soubrettes of the age appeared in the playbill of the theatre and, throughout the past century, it has been a theater attached to the revue, Roman comedy, vaudeville show and operetta. Since 2011 I Virtuosi dell'opera di Roma performed here an important part of their Concert's Season.

We attended Verdi's La Traviata at the Salone Margherita in Rome on November 4th. We opted to have the dinner and were seated in a box. Be sure and purchase your tickets early. I believe there are only 10 boxes. Would highly recommend doing this....More

I've seen the opera La traviata countless time in big concert halls and I absolutely loved this performance in an intimate setting. The scale of the opera was much reduced with about twenty musicians in orchestra and around the same number of singers. Yet the...More

Even if it's a theater, I went there for an evening party (back in February 2017), organized by Post Office team: they removed all the chairs, so there was plenty of space to dance and have fun. As usual, they let in too many people,...More

€8 for a coke and pizza margherita - and the pizza was fantastic. Crunchy edges, but lovely thin soft middle, with a rich tomato and cheese topping. Very close to the Spanish Steps so great place to break the sight-seeing!

I loved this theatre. Small and cozy with an excellent performance of La Traviata. The view of the stage was excellent and we were sitting at the back. I loved when the performers came into the auditorium as part of the entertainment. Truly lovely

I love Opera. I love it as entertainment, and I've witnessed a number of fairly sterile productions in my years, particularly at the big fancy places. This was not one of those. This theatre is a small, old, intimate, enchanting venue. I strongly recommend that...More

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
