Opera Festivals in Italy

For those who possess a lifelong passion for opera, are looking for a refined way to experience Italian culture, or searching for a unique and unforgettable holiday, our guided getaways offer a charming way to discover Verona and Lucca.

With ample opportunity to explore these beautiful and historic cities, as well as the best tickets to operatic performances, our opera holidays in Italy have been designed with leisure time and pre-organised excursions in mind. We create cultural tours of Italy that feature opera, dining experiences and history, for your perfect break.


A Choice of Festivals

From the world’s oldest opera festival in Verona, to the beautiful and serene lakeside setting at Torre del Lago, we have created the finest opera travel you could imagine, for a truly exceptional Italian retreat.

Experience the incredible Arena di Verona, where performances are held in the open-air Roman amphitheatre. Or select the waterside theatre at Lake Massaciuccoli, to witness masterpieces in a stunning setting.


Incredible Performances

Showcasing opera’s most celebrated composers, from Italian maestro Puccini to the prodigiously gifted Mozart, each four-night holiday includes tickets to two opera performances. We handpick the very best seats in each arena, so you can enjoy the ultimate viewing experience.

Alongside stunning open-air locations, the opera festivals in Verona and Lucca have played host to award winning directors. This means you will see your favourite operas performed by the most talented and celebrated artists, on stages unlike any other.


Pre-Opera Talks

Not only does each of our escorted holidays include opera festivals, they also provide the opportunity to expand upon your knowledge, allowing you to build a greater appreciation for the artform.

Each opera includes an introductory talk by an expert, detailing information about the musical maestros and their masterworks. The result is a deeper and more meaningful connection to the stories, with a greater immersion in the evening’s performance.


A Tailored Holiday

An Italian getaway like no other, our opera tour holidays can be tailored, just for you. To extend your stay in this extraordinary country and attend extra performances, we can assist with arranging additional hotel stays, pre-book tickets and create a personalised itinerary, for a truly, one-of-a-kind getaway.

Whether returning home or onwards to the likes of Florence, Venice and Rome, we can help to arrange transport. Experienced in designing exceptional escapes, we can assist in finding your ideal flights (price not included in our tour packages), departing from an airport and at a time that suits you.
