Get to know one of the most famous operas in the world, and discover its secrets, seeing both the stage and the museum, which houses a great collection of costumes, instruments and portraits.

The vestibule of the Teatro alla Scala
The Main Auditorium


Accompanied by a guide passionate about music and history, this tour takes you around the famous Teatro alla Scala, constructed in the 18th century and currently one of the most famous opera houses in the world. The world's greatest singers have performed here over the last 200 years.

During the tour we will admire the auditorium from the balcony, appreciating all of the details of the palace, including the boxes, the stage, the stalls, and the main hall. This last area is decorated with golden stuccos and an enormous chandelier with 383 light bulbs. And if we are lucky, it is possible that our visit may coincide with a rehearsal, which will allow us to see how the artists prepare for their performances.

The tour also visits the alla Scala Museum, where you can see a wide collection of costumes, paintings, musical instruments and portraits, including those of the famous Italian maestros Giuseppe Verdi and Arturo Toscanini.

We will finish the visit returning to the main hall of the theatre, the most famous in Lombardy, and one of the most important musical pilgrimages in Europe.


The Spanish tour takes place exclusively on Mondays and Fridays between 1 April and 6 November (inclusive) at 3:30 pm. The rest of the dates the tour is in English at 2:30 pm.
