Teatro Massimo is really the place to hear Puccini, Bellini or Verdi opera, since it's Italy's largest opera house, not to mention the third-largest opera house in the world. But even if your Italian tastes run more to the Mafia than prima donnas, you might still want to plan a visit here: The Godfather: Part III's closing scenes were filmed here. One TripAdvisor user says: "To fully experience and get a glimpse of the wealthy Palermitans you must watch a performance. Not only that but the level of the orchestra, opera and ballet is excellent and there are often star guests from opera houses around the world so you will have a lovely evening amongst the splendour of the building."
You'll find this grand opera house on the Piazza Verdi in Palermo. For more information on performances and tickets, visit the official website.
