The Teatro Massimo in Palermo is a work of art, it ranks third in terms of the largest opera in Europe behind Paris and Vienna. The guide explained it great both in English and Italian, leaving a few minutes to contemplate its majesty. For lovers of cinema and the Godfather saga, they will be able to contemplate a room and some views that appear in one of the 3 films.

The theater is definitely one of the buildings in Palermo to visit but I find the guided tour too expensive for what it offers. The duration of the guided tour (costing 10 euros) is about 20 minutes and includes: a visit to the theater room, one of the stands and another room, the so-called smokers' room. I was expecting a visit more rich in information and rooms to see.
