Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet, is full of architecturally striking piazzas, churches and museums, evidence of its Roman and medieval past. It is famous for the opera season in July and August in the Roman Arena.
The Verona opera is a real spectable. Sit in the warm night air and enjoy the electric atmosphere and spectacular opera. Performances commence at 9pm. Most places are on the steps of the arena. Excursions will run from all Lake Garda resorts for every performance. If you are staying in Verona we can book your tickets for you, without transport to the Arena.
Enjoying these operas on a warm summer evening is a truly magical experience.
Tickets are now available - See below for the timetable for 2013 and seating plan - Please call to book and for prices 01483 79 11 22
This year the Opera celebrates its 100th birthday and also the bicentenary of the birth of the famous composer, Giuseppe Verdi, composer of the famous Aida. To mark the occasion, Placido Domingo has been appointed as Honorary Artistic Director. In any year, the opera is a real spectacle but 2013 promises to be extra special year with some Gala Evenings.
If you are staying in Verona we can book your tickets for you. Excursions will also run from all our Lake Garda resorts and from Lake Iseo for all performances and transport to/from the Arena is included. Performances start at 9pm but you will be taken to Verona in plenty of time to enjoy a pre-opera dinner in a restaurant of your choice.

If you cancel your holiday booking or opera booking, we cannot refund the opera ticket. In the event of a performance being cancelled because of poor weather, the value of your ticket will be refunded. However, if a performance is curtailed because of poor weather (even after a few minutes), no refund will be made.
We can normally confirm un-numbered places (C/D/E/F) immediately when you book your holiday, and we will request numbered places (G/A/A1/B). Early booking is recommended. For numbered seats, Inghams will apply for your tickets and from mid-November we can normally confirm within 48 hours. Your holiday and ticket confirmation/invoice will then be sent to you. If we are forced to offer tickets in an alternative price range, you will have 24 hours to confirm your acceptance. Payment for opera tickets should be made at the same time as your deposit and insurance, once tickets have been confirmed. We regret that we cannot waive cancellation charges for holidays cancelled as a result of tickets not being obtained.
