Opera Verona, 2011

I hope to go to Verona for the Opera in 2011: can anyone who has already been there offer any advice or tips, on what to do and most importantly, what not to do. Grazie



At the opera;-

  • Dress casually
  • take a large picnic - be prepared to share/swap with others there
  • take wine - not soft drinks - and plenty of it
  • sing along - everyone does [except the posh twits]
  • take a cushion to sit on
  • take warm clothes - it can get chilly at night
  • take a waterproof - if its raining, and cancelled you get a refund AS Long As You Are Still In the Ampitheatre [my mate was there when they cancelled at 2200hrs - after most had gone home]
  • ENJOY yourself

Totally agree with the previous posts, however I would add re the supply of wine, decant into plastic bottles beforehand. When we last went, all glass bottles (and contents) were confiscated - only plastic bottles were allowed.
