Italy, Lake Garda
Pretty Torri del Benaco is a small resort with a relaxed atmosphere. Its historical centre and colourful harbour are dominated by the 13th century Scaliger castle and its protective medieval walls. The resort has charming churches and characteristic buildings that date from the days when Torri was the maritime capital of the lake. You can explore the lovely networks of lanes where you will find interesting craft shops and delicatessens as well as the odd gelateria. Around the harbour there is a large selection of cafés and restaurants where you can while away the day watching the world go by.
A night at the opera in the ancient arena in Verona must surely be one of life’s great experiences even if you’re not an opera buff. The 2016 programme (24 June - 28 August) sees the return of the all-time favourite Aida by Verdi, loved for its lavish scenery and costumes. But there are also performances of La Traviata and Il Trovatore by Verdi and Turandot by Puccini, as well as the return of Bizet's much-loved opera, Carmen. If you are staying in Torri del Benaco we can book most performances (listed on the Verona Opera page) and transport to and from Verona is included in addition to your Opera tickets.
