The staffs are extremely nice and speak English well. They instructed me about the structure of the theatre. I was lucky enough to see Teatro alla Scala with lights on. Everyone who visits Milan should see this. All you need is to book a ticket to the museum and you will also see a little bit of the theatre. Really worth the time!

This theater tells us why it is one of the world's top three opera houses. In fact, I watched an opera on my honeymoon and made unforgettable memories. With my lovely wife. It is a place where you can listen to the music and songs of the best luxury goods in Milan. If I go to Milan again, I will go to see opera here, not Italy's finest. With my beloved family.

Absolutely beautiful. Even more beautiful if you get to visit while watching a performance. A tour through the space is amazing to fully get the whole design of the space in

Very beautiful. I attended a German opera with beautiful setting and great cast. They also have screens on which you can follow the play, in my case it was in German and Italian.

Definitely a must visit place. It has a museum where you can see the clothes that the actors wore in the famous plays. When o went to visit there was a rehearsal going on and i watched it from upstairs.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
