The Teatro Massimo Vittorio Emmanuele or Palermo Opera House

Built between 1875-1897, this is the third largest opera house in Europe with 7730 square meters of beauty. The architect who designed the opera house won the honor via an open competition. While currently under renovation it was open for tours upon first presenting your vaccination card. It’s last renovation was from 1974-1997, when for 23 years the Opera House was silent. Let’s hope this doesn’t happen again, take a look..

And while there had the great fortune to hear a practicing musician. What a treat.

What a work of art. If in Palermo take the tour, catch a concert, and maybe even a carriage ride.
