The renowned Verona Opera festival is one of Italy's greatest spectacles and the highlight of the summer in this ancient city. Attending a performance at the 1st Century amphitheatre is a wonderful experience and on many people's bucket lists - there's nothing quite like sitting in the warm air and enjoying the electric atmosphere and spectacular operatic performances.
The 2022 season runs from 17th June to 4th September and opens with Carmen - the most famous of Bizet's Operas. The season includes a number of amazing shows including Aida, Nabucco, La Traviata, Turandot as well as one off shows like Carrnina Bunana.

Cancellations: 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.
Important information: We can normally confirm un-numbered places (K1) immediately when you book your holiday, and we will request numbered places (A1/B1/C1/D1/E1/F1/G1/H1/I1/J1). 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 once tickets have been confirmed. We regret that we cannot waive cancellation charges for holidays cancelled as a result of tickets not being obtained.
