Aptly named after the phoenix, this opera house has risen from its own ashes three times, the last in the 1990s when it was burned in an act of arson. It was rebuilt in the same ornate style as the building that had been destroyed—a choice that some critics said was not as courageous as building anew. But the Venetians like things the way they are: Take the Campanile tower in San Marco, rebuilt in the 1900s exactly as it had been when it collapsed. The venue is open every day for music performances and self-guided tours.
