Imagine sitting in box seats at the opulent Palais Garnier in Paris as the curtain opens for a performance of La Bohème or at Teatro La Fenice in Venice for Rigoletto. With a custom-planned opera trip to Europe, you'll experience opera in the world's most beautiful opera houses.

Your custom opera trip will feature exceptional hotels that make the comfort of their guests a top priority; special experiences to enrich your encounters with the music and theater of Europe such as backstage tours, gala opening nights, or limo and driver to a performance.

Like I told you the trip was "inspired". The seats at all the theatre events were outstanding. Kaiserball, oh my. It was worth every penny we spent. We danced a storm. You did an outstanding job in guiding us through these plans. We are so appreciative!!! We were so amazed as to how this trip went without hitch and no disappointments. We have travelled a lot and certainly this one rates among the top.
