We booked the tour in German and were at the agreed meeting point about 20 minutes before the start. Luckily for us, we had a private tour with Lorella who told us a lot and interesting things about the opera. Since we were very early, we had a glimpse into the opera without the glass barriers from one of the boxes. Got insider tips on which places are very good and not that expensive and were lucky enough to see a sample afterwards. We can highly recommend the tour.

The tour can also be done on your own. Entrance to the Scala and Museum 9 .-- Eur or no backstage tour. The tour lasted only one hour.

The tour was ok so far, the guide friendly and the language understandable. It could have been a little more detailed. Instead of the booked 90 minutes, the tour of the opera ended after 60 minutes. Upon request, the guide also told us something about the gallery outside of the Scala. But a tour with the theme "Scala" was actually paid for. I don't think that's okay. Then advertise for 60 minutes and pay less!
