Like most things that are fundamentally Italian - you need to be Italian for it to seem obvious or intuitive. You certainly should book well in advance, what to wear?, when to arrive, how to get back to your hotel afterwards. The visit does require...More

La Scala is the most famous opera house in Europe! Verdi! Maria Callas. Pavarotti, other famous opera singers. Amazing acoustics, classic gorgeous architecture and decorations. Also a museum of all things opera!
