EXPERIENCE HIGH CULTURE: OPERA FESTIVAL IN THE ARENA DI VERONA AND IN VITTORIALE DEGLI ITALIANI

Where better experience opera than in an original amphitheatre from the Roman era? An undisputed highlight – not only for opera lovers – is an evening in the one and only Arena di Verona. Its world famous opera festival is held annually from June to September. Be it opera, ballet or a musical concert you’ll get to see masterful performances under clear skies. A BYO bottle of wine and own refreshment is the generally-observed custom. An evening in such an extraordinary location quite simply is something you just can’t pass on.

  • A monumental, very well-preserved amphitheatre from the Roman era
  • Opera festival from June to September 
  • Tickets can be easily ordered online
  • Tips on finding seats and tickets: the most moderately-priced category is the unnumbered gallery seats without seat cushions and backrests, which are the farthest away and situated very high up in the Arena. These cost about € 22 each and are called “gradinata.” To get one such seat on sold-out evenings, you’ll have to arrive early enough before the scheduled start of the performance. Bringing your own comfortable seat cushion is a must. No glass bottles are allowed; however, dedicated picnic baskets with your own refreshments are just the way to go 
  • It is recommended to bring enough water with you because the entrance to the gradinata seats opens early and at sold-out events it is inevitable to find yourself waiting in queue
  • If you wish to have it more comfortable, it is best to invest in the next higher up category, in which you’ll get a proper seat in the galleries (cost: Monday to Thursday € 73 to € 94, Friday and Saturday € 84 to € 104)
  • The most expensive category is about € 200 a ticket – formal evening dress is obligatory for these seats
  • An opera performance typically lasts about 3 and a half hours
  • About 45 minutes away from Apartments Lake Garda
ARENA DI VERONA

There is hardly a more splendid museum to be found that impresses both architecturally and historically and with a rich and chequered past. The Vittoriale, complete with its large parking facility, is located on the western side of Lake Garda. The lot is no less than 9 hectares large and is an ideal trip tip both for families with kids and for historical and cultural aficionados.

  • Former residence of Italian playwright Gabriele D’Annunzio
  • Designed by Italian architect Giancarlo Maroni
  • In addition to stylish buildings such as the Villa “La Prioria” that holds a library of 6000 tomes, you’ll find paintings by the German 19th century realist painter Franz von Lehnbach and the Steinway grand piano of the composer Franz Liszt

You can also find here: 

  • An imposing mausoleum
  • A scenic countryside composed of gardens, parks, quaint locations and waterways
  • The Puglia – a cruiser mounted on a slope of a nearby hilltop
  • The MAS, a submarine for attacking warships (both received by D’Annunzio as a gift from the Italian navy);
  • A wartime museum
  • Suitable for all ages
  • About 30 minutes away from Apartments Lake Garda

Whether you visit Lake Garda on a family holiday or on a romantic trip for two, you’re your experience won’t only consist of water sports and heaps of bathing fun – but also an experience richly flavoured with picturesque nature, culture and history.
