Private Tours of Milan's La Scala with Principe de Savoia

La Scala, Milan

A mythical destination for opera aficionados, La Scala in Milan witnessed the premieres of Donizetti’s Lucrezia Borgia, Verdi’s Nabucco and Puccini’s Turandot. First opened in 1778, the opera house recently completed a four-year renovation. Want insider access to this extraordinary venue? The Principe di Savoia, the Dorchester Collection’s palace hotel in Milan, offers an exclusive experience for music lovers: a tour of La Scala with a local expert in art history.

La Scala is usually closed to the public, and you’ll get access to private boxes and above the stage, which is one of the largest in Italy. Check out the backstage area, take in a concert on Franz Liszt’s piano, then relax with a cocktail in one of the beautifully decorated salons. For more information, visit
