What people say

"While La Scala in Milan may have the most international fame, Italians consider Teatro San Carlo the heart and soul of the opera world. The original San Carlo opera house, built in 1737, was destroyed in a fire in 1816 but was quickly rebuilt to equal magnificence. If you have time, join one of the 45-minute tours offered several times daily, with tickets easily purchased before the tour begins. Originally called the Royal Theatre of San Carlo as commissioned by the Bourbon King Charles (Carlo) III, it remains the largest opera house in Europe and a thrilling place to see the opera world's biggest stars perform."
