In Ferrara, you will see the impressive five-tiered auditorium at the Teatro Communale, while in Mantua you will explore the Teatro Bibiena, an intimate baroque theater that opened in 1770 with a performance by the 13-year-old Wolfgang Mozart.
Best Seats in the House
The jewel in the crown of this Italian cruise is the chance to enjoy an acclaimed opera at the Arena di Verona, an astonishingly well-preserved Roman amphitheater built in the first century AD. This 15,000-seat venue is a magical environment for watching the performance where guests aboard La Bella Vita’s cruise will benefit from choice seats in the front stalls. Those quick enough to book this year’s opera cruise have the opportunity to experience a thrilling performance of George Bizet’s ‘Carmen’.
As well as these enviable experiences for opera enthusiasts, this itinerary offers plenty of opportunities to immerse yourself in Italian history and culture as you cruise the serene waters of the River Po. There are private wine tastings, as well as dinner hosted by a Countess at the beautiful 17th-century Villa Ca’Zen, for example.
Bird lovers will find the nature reserve of the Po Delta enjoyable while viewing flamingos, snipe, and herons from the barge’s sun deck. The Archaeological Museum at Adria, an Etruscan town with a rich history, will fascinate ancient history lovers. The impressive Ducal Palace in Mantua is enchanting with its Gallery of Mirrors, masterful frescos, and multiple gardens.
