Visit the Teatro alla Scala
Based in the land that created opera, La Scala is a world-renowned opera and ballet theater inaugurated way back in 1778, before Italy was even Italy. It was constructed at the request of ninety wealthy Milan citizens when the city’s other theater burned down and therefore became the prime meeting place for nobility and other wealthy society members. Over the last 200 years it has showcased some of the most talented singers from around the world.
Why is it bucket list worthy?
It has hosted dozens of primas (opera premiers), including several by Giuseppe Verdi.
