Tickets can be purchased in several ways including from authorized agents, via La Scala’s two box offices at Duomo in the Galleria del Sagrato or in the evening at the onsite box office. Opera fans will enjoy the six-story circular balcony, which provides a tremendous view with plenty of excellent seat options. The main floor is divided into three distinct sections. La Scala tickets are also widely available through countless travel packages offering options including tickets plus accommodations, tours throughout Milan, and even Italy flights.
