3 Operas, 3 Cities, all best seats in the house!
We had a wonderful holiday in beautiful Venice. Our hotel the Metropole was ideally situated about 5 mins walk from St Mark’s square and very near to the vaporettos so that exploring was very easy. Our guide to the Basilica and St Mark’s square was charming, very knowledgeable and very good fun. La Fenice was wonderful, a stunning performance of Tosca which we thoroughly enjoyed with excellent seats.
The trip was marvellous! All the hotels were impeccable, but the Metropole stood out because it seemed to have a real personal touch. The view over the lagoon was marvellous. I wanted to give Mo a trip to remember and you certainly provided that. I cannot thank you enough.
