Perfect for your first timer or your opera lover, these Italian short breaks are for those wanting either a long weekend or time to explore in a second, or third location. For your night at the opera, we have special access to the Gold Central Stall tickets, which are the very best seats in the house located on the ground floor. They are about halfway back, which affords you a full view of the stunning sets, but still near enough to see everything in crystal clarity.
Our favourites include Verona Opera & Lake Garda, Verona Opera & Romantic Venice and Verona Opera & Historical Palio Horse Race.
All of these breaks can be tailor-made to suit you and can be made longer, shorter, a second night at the opera and feature the right blend of tours and time at leisure to wander and explore by yourself.

The most fantastic 4 days. The seats at the opera Carmen (which was amazing) were I thought the best in the house (or should I say arena). If I had to select my seats I would have chosen the ones we were given. Would highly recommend. Thank you so much for a wonderful time to celebrate my husband’s birthday.
From being met at Verona airport, by a charming lady in a limo - to arriving back at Gatwick, the whole experience was an absolute delight. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends.
The hotel was charming & the opera was fantastic. Many thanks to all concerned.
