The tour was simultaneously in Spanish and English, whereby the Spanish part always felt longer. The opera is beautiful, but not very special. You don't necessarily have to do this tour.

Everything was great! The tour guide did an excellent job pointing out details of the room that were created to contribute to the acoustics. The architecture itself was incredible!

Our guide was very friendly and had great knowledge of the Opera House. She was very thoughtful towards older people on the tour. I really enjoyed my hour with her.

The Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía is Valencia’s cultural hub, and a haven for grand operatic and musical performances. The uniquely shaped exteriors are only a trailer to the mind-bending interiors. As you enter, don’t miss the walls of the main hall covered with dark blue mosaic.

Gain a deeper understanding of the technical and artistic details that are combined in the creation of the great performances. You will also get to look around the Centre de Perfeccionament Plácido Domingo, where future operatic greats hone their skills.

Your guide will show you the elements that make this building one of the most important architectural works in the world. The 1-hour tour not only takes you through the 14-story front, but also its four breathtaking, future-proof auditoriums that have hosted beautiful renditions of Mozart, Beethoven, and more!
