About the Verona Arena
"Select Italy was just fine, getting the tickets I requested. I would however prefer to have the tickets mailed instead of having to pick them up. As a regular opera goer, my wife and I were very disappointed with the staging of Aida. The modern presentation did not make any sense, other than trying to "wow" us with the vastness of the stage. The mechanical animals made me laugh; people walking around the stadium with glowing balls were totally mechanical. Finally, absolutely do NOT book side seats... they were hard, harsh and cramped, making usual airline seats appearing roomy! Few years back I was seated in the center orchestra, but they were either way too low below the stage, or too far from the stage. In short, for those regular theater goer, the arena should be used for gladiators. Nevertheless, it is still a venue to be experienced at least once.       SH (PALO ALTO, CA - California United States)
"I booked tickets for Aida well in advance. We altered our itinerary slightly to accommodate the date for the opera. I stumbled upon this service searching for "performances" while we planned to be in Italy. What a terrific service and what a peak moment for me, my husband and our 20 year old daughter. Opera the way it is meant to be experiencedand Select Italy was just right. Incredible seats and the ease which we reserved the tickets and paid was fabulous. I have told many friends about "Select Italy".        617AES (Winston-Salem , NC USA)
tickets for the opera - Arena di Verona
"We used Select Italy to book our tickets to see the opera Nabucco at the Arena di Verona. The site was easy to navigate, and our first preference for seating was confirmed within a week of ticket purchase. The tickets were easy to pick-up, but just be aware that you must pick-up your tickets hours prior to the performance, as the office closes well before the start of the opera in the evening. We will definitely be using Select Italy on our next trip.        Shirin (Toronto, Canada)

AIDA was spectacular!
"The Arena di Verona experience at AIDA was beyond our expectations. We loved every minute of the experience - such wonderful musicians, dancers, and artistic designer. Grazie! Molto Grazie!! Thank you for your help with this dream trip given to me by my school. We had tickets for four opera performance when we arrived, two at the Puccini Festival (LA BOHEME and TURANDOT) and LA TRAVIATA and AIDA at the Verona Festival. We bought tickets for THE BARBER OF SEVILLE for July 19th while in Verona. Every minute of all five operas was breathtaking in every aspect. I would recommend your service to any who travel to Italy.

"Aida is Verona opera festival's signature piece, and we were there during their opening weekend. It's just spectacular. Moon passing over Roman centurions guarding over the stage holding candles at midnight. One of the most memorable opera moments, I will never forget. Can't say enough good things about how Maria at Select Italy helped to procure all our opera tickets. Best seats. I'd strongly advise opera lovers to try to get to Verona's opera festival in their open arena.       Francis Lee (Longmeadow, MA United States)
