Kirker Holidays offers tours to opera destinations
Kirker Holidays offers a selection of tailor-made short breaks and escorted tours to some of the world’s opera destinations.
Its tailor-made short breaks combine tickets to a chosen performance/s with accommodation in hotels, curated Guide Notes, and the services of the Kirker Concierge to book local guides or a table for dinner. Its collection of cultural tours includes opera experiences with escorted sightseeing, alongside like-minded travelling companions and accompanied by an expert guide.
An example trip includes the Roman Arena in Verona. The city is also a base from which to enjoy excursions to nearby Venice or Lake Garda.
A three-night break staying at the four-star Palazzo Victoria, close to the Arena, costs from £558 pp.
