Opera Classics

Italy has plenty of wonderful venues and settings for viewing the opera, and these are some of the best, which all opera connoisseurs should sample at least once in their lifetime.

La Fenice in Venice is a beautiful ornate opera house, which regularly showcases a wide range of operas including the popular Tosca, La Traviata and Madame Butterfly.

La Scala in Milan is known for being synonymous with opera. Each year the full season includes operas and ballets to suit all, including older traditional pieces and newer operas. Main operas include Turandot, The Barber of Seville and La Boheme.

The Verona Arena however, is quite different to the other two options as the opera is housed in an ancient Roman amphitheater. The acoustics are truly beyond their time and for those daring few, you can even sit on the original stone steps up high. For everyone else, seating with cushions is available!

We have access to top level seating at all of these events, something few are able to offer.

These breaks are perfect for those who love the opera, or in the case of Verona want to combine opera with a beautiful open-air historical surrounding. They also provide wonderful gifts for special birthdays and anniversaries.
