Theatre Massimo of Palermo

Pin It
The largest theatre in Italy, worldwide renowned for the perfect acoustic of the horseshoe-shaped hall.

The theatre was built in the last decades of the 19th century in neoclassical style, dominated by a huge dome and a flight of steps with two majestic bronze lions on both sides.

After a long closure for restoration works, in 1997 the theatre finally reopened to public. Today it is possible to do guided visits all year round inside the theatre.
