One of the largest opera houses in Europe, the Teatro Massimo is well known in Palermo and across the world for a reason. It's large and beautiful and worth visiting if only to see the exterior. There are tours of the interior for a small fee.

Palermo's Teatro Massimo "Vittorio Emanuele" is not only the largest theatre in Italy, but also one of the largest in Europe. This theater was also famous because of the movie The Godfather 3, where the tragic conclusion to the saga is staged on the opera house steps.

Opera, ballet and classical concerts. If you care about culture at all, this is a must on a visit to Palermo. Oh and also the theater is featured in the Godfather! Talk about some serious I'm in a movie kind of feelings.

The theatre is not only stunning inside but also offers a great season of opera, some ballet and symphonic concerts throughout the year. Take a tour inside to see some interesting architectural highlights.

I never saw an opera here but I did see the Godfather Part III in the movie theater when I was 11. In the film Michael Corleone's daughter is gunned down on the steps of the theater after his son's debut opera performance. Many tourists go to see the theater just for that reason.

As many constructions in Palermo, it's so over the top! Built to rival the biggest theaters in Europe! Don't get me wrong, it perfectly fits the city! Being in Palermo is being part of a movie. I did not get inside of it.

Icona della città, il teatro Massimo è uno dei più famosi gioielli palermitani, il più grande teatro lirico d’Italia e il terzo in Europa, con la sua facciata in stile liberty tipico delle costruzioni classiche. Elegante e imponente, sicuramente è una delle mete da non perdere per la sua maestosità sia all’esterno che all’interno. Cercate di assistere ad uno dei tanti spettacoli, sarà un modo ancor più bello di ammirare il teatro!

Un must per gli amanti del teatro! Il Massimo di Palermo è il teatro più grande d'Italia e il terzo più grande d'Europa, ed è famoso per la facciata neoclassica e l'ottima acustica all'interno.
