Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 in the heart of Rome. The name Margherita was a clear homage to Margherita of Savoia, King Umberto's first wife. Here typical vaudeville shows were presented to flaunt more luxury and refinement than in any theatre in Rome. In the '10s, the best comedians and the most searched soubrettes of the age appeared in the playbill of the theatre and, throughout the past century, it has been a theater attached to the revue, Roman comedy, vaudeville show and operetta. Since 2011 I Virtuosi dell'opera di Roma performed here an important part of their Concert's Season.

This was my first opera in person. It was pretty good, especially the leading lady and her father. However, if I did this again, I would not buy the dinner. The food was really not that well prepared. Fortunately, the opera made up for it.

I think that the reviews make it pretty clear that some opera aficionados are not really impressed by Salon Margherita. I would ask what had they really expected? The small theatre only seems to seat 150-200 or so in the audience so cant possibly have...More

This was for me the highlight of our visit to Rome this year. The Colluseum and the rest of the historical buildings are of course incredible but La Traviata was "alive". I am a life-long opera lover so the chance of seeing my favourite opera...More

I would imagine that this experience would be first taste of Opera for many. Who doesn't want to see an Opera in Rome? The venue is great, the food and service was good (we had a box I suggest you do too), the actors and...More

Beautiful theater and opera! Everything was perfect! Lights, decoration, artists! A must see if you visit Rome. The theater is very close to good restaurants and Piazza de España!

We went to the Opera in Rome. Saw "La Traviata", that is about all you can see after going here. Opera lovers stay away. This is made just for tourists. Don't get me wrong, the principle voices are good and strong... but the acting, staging...More

I love opera, so I reserved tickets to La Traviata because I wanted to experience Italian opera. The venue is pretty and intimate and easy to get to via public transport (very close to Spagna station). However, a complementary bowl of pasta (???) and gelato...More

The elegance of this venue is unique and I would recommend highly. Well worth the money to sit in your own balcony for show and five course dinner. Takes you back in time where people dressed opulently and held theatre glasses. Amazing architecture. Stained glass...More

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
