Practical information

The Gran Teatro La Fenice has a Web site at www.teatrolafenice.it, with English-language information about performances, tickets, directions to the theatre, and other topics.

The official directions are a bit vague if you're unfamiliar with Venice, but a good map will help you find the opera house. Google's satellite photo map is useful tool: The default view shows La Fenice's location in the sestiere of San Marco, and you can zoom in for a better view.

Self-guided tours

On most days, La Fenice is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for self-guided audio tours in English, Italian, French, Spanish, and German. (Tours are cancelled during daytime performances or other events. Call +39 041 2424 if you need to confirm tour times.)

Groups of more than 10 people can book tours led by an official theatre guide. (Reserve ahead at +39 041 786674.)

Please note:

  • The self-guided tour lasts about 45 minutes and does not include backstage areas. Allow extra time if you want a drink or snack in the café.

  • You can visit the book and gift shop in La Fenice's lobby without taking a tour.
