Enjoyed the opera tour. The only thing I would suggest is the directions where to meet. If perhaps you mention at the ticket office rather than the shop and amend the click on direction as this put me in the square opposite and I was late for my tour, when I was on the seats at least half an hour prior to tour. The guards and guide were very helpful with catching up with the tour.

It is unthinkable to be in Milan and not visit this temple of art. The tour guide was very good and very detailed in presenting all the history as he guided us through the museum. We would have liked to have access to the inside of the theater as well, but there was a performance rehearsal at the time of our visit.

Outstanding guide. Unfortunately the main reason for taking the tour , was not to tour the museum , but to see the interior of La Scala theatre and it was in darkness ( with only a floodlight narrowly on the stage as there was a rehearsal for the next night's opera. So the whole point of the tour was nullifieds
