European Waterways has reintroduced its Opera Cruise for guests who book the 7-night, August 26, 2018 departure of its 20-passenger La Bella Vita hotel barge.
In addition to a 6-night cruise on the Po Valley and the Bianco Canal starting in Venice, the Opera Cruise includes a stay in a 4-star hotel in Verona on the night before joining the cruise, with dinner and premium seats to watch Georges Bizet’s “Carmen” in the Arena di Verona.
Prices for the 7-night, fully-crewed Opera Cruise, start at £3,265 per person, based on double occupancy and include: all gourmet meals, fine wines, open bar, daily escorted excursions, admissions and local transfers. Other restrictions may apply. Opera cruise charters can also be booked, based on ticket availability, during the run of ‘Carmen’ for any departure from June 24 – August 26, 2018.
The morning after the opera, guests experience a guided tour of Verona before being transported to Venice to board La Bella Vita, where in the afternoon they cruise along the famous Giudecca Canal, past some of Venice’s monuments that include Chiesa del Redentore and the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute.
