Fees and Tickets
Most clubs charge a cover (usually €10–€20), which often includes the first drink.
Depending on the venue, concert tickets can cost €7–€50, or as much as several hundred euros for an exclusive, sold-out event.
Often, you can find seating that is unreserved (identified in Italian as posti non numerati), or even last-minute tickets. Inquire about this option when ticket shopping; you may have to arrive early to get a good seat.
Purchase opera and concert tickets in advance at the box office, or just before the performance.
