Venice Opera Breaks

4 days from £385 per person

Teatro La Fenice, is an iconic landmark in Italian theatre and one of the most historic of all opera houses in Italy, not to mention one of the most beautiful and alluring. The nightlife in Venice may be low key, but the city makes up for this through its strong tradition of classical music and opera performances, many of which can be enjoyed at La Fenice. Many people choose to travel by gondola to La Fenice, which as the sun sets only adds to the romance and ambience of a night at the opera in Italy. Venice itself is an archipelago of 117 small islands, an enchanting city standing above the water showcasing its beautiful, ancient architecture. Separated by a maze of around 200 canals and connected by nearly 400 idyllic bridges, enjoy immersing yourself in the local way of life as you amble through tiny side streets, cross grand palazzi’s, soak up the fascinating history and discover authentic eateries and cosy wine bars.
