As the third largest opera house in Europe after Paris and Vienna, the Massimo Theater is also the pinnacle of Palermo’s neoclassical architecture. I went to Palermo several times before and I was wrong with the guided tour in the theater. This time I went ahead (you can also contact by email) to book a guided tour + climb to the top to see the city scenery of Palermo. Because someone in the group reported to the backstage, the tour guide simply asked everyone to show it.
The Massimo Theater was built to celebrate the unification of Italy. It covers an area of 8,000 square meters. There are two huge bronze lions at the door. The two statues above the lions represent the gods of drama and opera respectively. There are 1,350 seats inside, and the seven floors surround the inclined stands, which is a typical horseshoe-shaped style.
There is a limit on the number of people in the summit group, so you must book in advance by email.
The Massimo Theater is very fun. The theater has a very exquisite design and decoration style. The entire theater is very good. The history of watching the theater is also very long.
[Value for money] Very long history
[Scenery] The location of the theater’s old street
This city will feel very comfortable to walk all the way. It is a city with a sense of life. The main pedestrian streets on both sides of the main road are shops. The theater can be seen in a particularly open square. There is also a theater on the opposite side. The lion statue at the entrance of this theater is impressive.
Palermo's theater, the appearance of a temple, and the theater's reception are all tall, handsome and beautifully uniformed Italian men's papers. You can also visit outside of the performance time, but it is not allowed to take pictures inside the theater.
The Massimo Theater is in the pedestrian street of Palermo. There are many tourists here. The theater is usually closed. There are performances inside. You can watch them for a fee. There are long stairs in front of the theater. Many tourists sit on the stairs to take pictures. !
