Concierge.com's insider take:
Still looking magnificent after its lengthy post-fire restoration, La Fenice opera house is a small gem of super-ornate gilt and curlicues. The theater has stood here in more or less the same form since 1792, burning down twice since then, most recently in 1996. There is a year-round program of operas, concerts, chamber music, ballets, and recitals. Though La Fenice rarely puts on performances of particularly challenging works, preferring to stage popular favorites to ensure high ticket sales, productions are generally world-class, with top international conductors appearing regularly on the podium. If classical music isn't your thing—or the ticket price tag is too high—you can visit the theater on a guided tour. Watch out, too, for the occasional free concert.—Lee Marshall
