Odessa in a Day: Fascinating Old Quarters, “Undiscovered” Odessa, Picturesque Neighborhoods and the City’s Marvel — the State Opera and Ballet Theater

Odessa in a Day Tour: don’t miss this excellent opportunity to see the most of Odessa! This 7-hour Odessa tour will give you an excellent overview of our beautiful city.

We see the best of Odessa by car and on foot. Strolling through the old quarters, we explore the main historic landmarks and off-the-beaten path areas. Enjoy the picturesque French Boulevard and Arcadia. Sneak a peek at the contemporary city. Visit Odessa’s main park – the Shevchenko park. See the tomb of the Unknown Sailor, dedicated to the World War ll heroes. A tour of the oldest city market will give you a feel for the local lifestyle. You discover “The Other” Odessa on a tour through the area once populated by the city’s first craftsmen, later by world famous artists, doctors and men of science.

You’ll receive an exclusive tour of the State Opera and Ballet Theater. This incredible baroque opera house is one of Europe’s largest and is sure to leave you awestruck with its elegant interior. Explore the auditorium, the main staircases (Emperor’s Staircase) and grand foyer with our expert guide, and hear how the building inspired the most prominent opera singers and ballet dancers of the late 1800s and early 1900s, among which were Feodor Chaliapin, Peter Tchaikovsky and Anna Pavlova. You’ll follow in the footsteps of such prominent names as Samuel Clemens (a.k.a. Mark Twain), Anton Chekhov and Theodore Dreiser and hear the stories hidden behind the marvelous façade of the historic building. And to make the tour less exhausting, we’ll have a stop for lunch with a local twist in one of Odessa’s authentic restaurants.
