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.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
