Lyric Spectacle in the Veneto

JMcG & P

Congratulations on organising a wonderful trip to Verona!

We enjoyed it enormously.

I thought it might be useful if I were to give you some feedback.

The private car to and from the airport was a great touch, so much better than looking for taxis.

The hotel was excellent; very central and very comfortable.

The seats in the arena could not have been better; I think it may have spoiled us for more ordinary performances in future!

We dined twice in the Antica Bodega del Vino, which we would rate highly, and had a very pleasant lunch in the "Maria Callas", in the Piazza dei Signori.

We also had a pizza and a beer, just before a performance, in the Café Emanuella,  on the Liston (where they are really geared to getting clients into the Arena on time).

We had no bad meals, the Veronese are clearly interested in their food; but these left the best memories.

The hop on - hop off bus was good, but we would recommend catching it away from the Piazza Bra', where there is quite a scrum. We started at Piazza delle Erbi, where there was  only one other couple waiting.

Congratulations again!
