Opera in Rome is the beauty of Italian culture


Italy is one of the most culturally rich countries in the world. Architectural masterpieces, world-famous paintings, imposing churches will move your heart! That’s why so many tourists come to the Eternal City every year. The Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and the Vatican City are on the to-do list of every tourist in Rome during the day. But if you have been walking from piazza to piazza all day long, and in the evening you want to have an Authentic Italian Experience, the Opera in Rome is one of the best things to do.


Why the opera and why in Rome?


Italy is certainly one of the best countries to enjoy opera performances: towards the end of the 16th century, the art form of opera was born in Italy. The Italian opera is world-famous and Italy is the undisputed home of it. The most famous operas in the world are written in Italian, and it is probably the most beautiful language to sing them. If your answer to that is: “I don’t know any Italian” then don’t worry about it, because you will be surprised how many melodies you are familiar with.
