Teatro Massimo

Palermo City

The Teatro Massimo is the biggest opera house in Italy and the third largest in Europe.

The Teatro Massimo (Massimo Vittorio Emanuele Theatre) is a neoclassical opera house built between 1875 and 1897 in Piazza Verdi. Elegant and rigorous with its imposing facade, Teatro Massimo has become a distinctive Landmark in Palermo. Renowned for its perfect acoustics, it can boast for being the biggest opera house in Italy and the third largest in Europe! 25 Minute guided tours are offered daily (except Mondays), but if you want to try the perfect sound system then I suggest you look into their cultural programme for an upcoming performance.

The area around Teatro Massimo is now a popular place to hang out for its busy cafes and non-stop social spots.

Admission Fee: 25 minute guided tours for €8.00 Full/ €5.00 Reduced for under 18 & over 65/ Free children under 6/ €3.00 school groups / €6.00 for groups of 20 people

Opening Hours: Tuesday- Sunday 9.30-17.00 (last entrance 16.30)

Address: Piazza Giuseppe Verdi, Palermo

  • My wife and I are visiting Sicily next June-2017. We are staying at the Marina d’Aspra and would like to schedule a tour of the Teatro Massimo for the two of us. Also, I do not see any opera’s, concerts or other events scheduled for June 2017. Can you let me know when that schedule will be ready? Thank you so much.

    • Hello David,

      the 2017 events run by the Teatro Massimo will be updated on the theatre’s website in a couple of months.
      If you need more specific information you can drop a line to the theatre’s press office which can give you more information about their plans for the next season.
      Thank you very much for contacting us.
