Italy, Lake Garda
Torri del Benaco is a pretty resort where life centres around the colourful harbour which is dominated by the 13th century Scaliger castle and its protective medieval walls. A great base to explore Lake Garda by bus or by ferry. 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 2017 programme (23 June - 27 August) includes the all-time favourite Aida by Verdi, loved for its lavish scenery and costumes. But there are also performances of Tosca and Madame Butterfly by Puccini and Rigoletto by Verdi. 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.
