Aida - Opera in Verona

We attended the Opera in Verona which was well organised by Opera Travel (also known as Football Break). Our trip was very well organised by the staff who were helpful and assisted with any queries we had. The flights were good. The hotel mazzanti was central,the room was lovely with a friendly atmosphere. Our seats at the opera were perfect. Hassle free break thanks to Opera Travel.

Aida - Opera in Verona

It was a totally fantastic trip. Our hotel just 5 mins walk from the arena. The city was great and we also caught a local bus to Lake Garda for the day. The food was wonderful and our night a the Opera was amazing, emotional and one of the most brilliant experiences of my life.

Tip: Just enjoy, there's so much to see and do, ask about prices before ordering,the displayed one's are for inside and in no way reflect the charge for sitting on the piazza.

Carmen - Opera in Verona

My wife and I went to Verona to see Carmen in July to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. The total package was excellent. I booked at the upper end of the spectrum because it was a special occasion and it was worth every penny. We would use OperaTravel again and I would recommend them to friends.

Aida - Opera in Verona

We had a wonderful time. The only issue was navigating the streets of Verona in a hired car. A better street map at time of booking would have been good. The hotel was lovely and we had brilliant seats with such a great atmosphere.

Un ballo in maschera & Carmen - Opera Verona

I have been before but this was my first time using a package. It made everything so much smoother and the service was brilliant from before we flew until the return. Your advise on all aspects of travel to and from airports and hotels was useful.
I only booked a package as it was a special present for a loved one and I did not want any hassle. It was so stress free I will do it again. Street Carmen. in Verona JPG Granddaughter  at Carmen

Nabucco & Aida - Opera in Verona

Our trip (mother and daughter) was from 16th Aug to 20th Aug 2013. The flight was good and we transfered by taxi (30 Euro) to hotel ''Maxim''.

This was a good hotel with clean sheets and towels provided daily. Our hotel was located 3 km from city centre and we used public transport which is cheap and easy to use in Verona. We saw Aida and Nabucco, both were absolutely fabulous. We enjoyed it very much and we think that everybody should experience this once. The seats (gradinata, cheapest category) were good. The total package was well organised, the service was very good. The city is very nice (good for shopping, especially shoes), churches are well worth a visit and the best cappucino can be found a little coffee shop (with just 6 seats) in the 'corso prta borsari). Piazza Erbe is also a nice spot. Just go and experience it, we enjoyed it very much!

Aida - Opera in Verona

We had a very good experience with the total package. The opera Aida was simply beautiful!! It has always been our wish to see Aida in Verona, also because we are living on a square called Aida. The city is beautiful as well and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Aida - Opera in Verona

The total package was good and the service of OperaTravel as well. The opera, in our case Aida, was really great and a unique experience. We wanted to sit in the front and that is why we upgraded the seats and sat in row thirteen, we found the extra cost well worth it. However, it is true that all the places in the arena are great. It was very nice and cosy that when the opera was finished at 1.15 many people sat down for a drink and a snack on the terraces. We were two days longer in Verona than the standard package. I would not recommend this, because three days is enough to visit Verona. We took a trip by train to Lake Garda and spent the afternoon there on a pedalo, which we really liked.

Aida - Opera in Verona

In general it was just EXCELLENT! This was by the way the second time we made this trip. Just on Schiphol it was extremely busy. We arrived there one and a half hour prior to the flight, but did not have a seat next to each other in the plane. We did sit next to each other, while we waited, until everybody was inside the plane. In the end there was a "group" (apparently a company outing) that did not check the seat numbers so we could stay seated next to each other. The opera was GREAT! Verona: special city: it is also nice to go on a tour by bus (double decker). Special as well: travel by train to Peschiere and then enjoy a boat trip on Lake Garda, to for example Garda or Sirmione.

Madama Butterfly - Opera in Prague

I was treated in a very client-friendly way throughout the booking process and nothing was too much trouble. They were also able to organize a transfer. So great service; congratulations! The hotel was simple but very clean, which is very important. The breakfast was not very extensive, but good enough for me. The hotel was conveniently located. Prague is a beautiful city. Nice to walk a bit around, taste the atmosphere and occasionally visit a church. These were always a surprise. In general a thoroughly justified recommendation.

Aida - Opera in Verona

If you are getting seats in row 5 right in the middle of the stage, then I can only write a praising review. Especially in combination with the recommended hotel!
