The visit to Scala -and I mean the Opera House itself, not the building - was extremely short, about 5-7 minutes in a lodge at the 3-4-rd floor, with an Opera personal member who had the job to rush us. It was unpleasant, frustrating, we went there to visit, in principal, the stage, the main spectacle room, but not the bar or stairs. Other way, the meeting point indicated by map was far away from the point where the GetYorGuide guide was expecting us, without a flag or else. We had to call at GetYorGuide to ask for indications. It was the second time when wad hapenned, in the same day! The guide was OK.

We did this tour, my wife and I, on our last day in Milan. Most of our tours in Italy were about art in the form of paintings, sculptures, and architecture. This tour has a different flavor, and that's why we enjoyed it. It's also next to the fashion district, so it's nice to plan it on the same day you plan on going there.

Very interesting tour. Took you around the museum and into La Scala itself. Very good for anyone with even a general interest in classical music and opera. The radio Mike from the guide was a a bit crackly. Most of the time you didn't need the earpiece though so not too.much of a problem.
