For those planning a vacation to Italy this summer, the Pompeii Festival offers you the chance to watch some beautiful operatic performances in a spectacular setting.
Visitors to Pompeii are drawn in by the town’s infamous past, which saw the destruction of its buildings and residents after Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79AD. It is now a fascinating tourist attraction that gives you the opportunity to wander along the once bustling streets and imagine what life would have been like before the eruption occurred.
Between May and September you can also visit the town in the evening and enjoy a selection of the performances that are taking place. These run right through the summer months and include Tosca, La Traviata, Nabucco, The Barber of Seville, and Swan Lake. They will all take place in the stunning Grand Theater, which dates back to the second and third century BC. The amphitheater is situated on a natural slope, providing excellent views of the performance area from wherever you are positioned.
The Pompeii Festival provides you with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to listen to some of the most beautiful pieces of music in a setting that simply cannot be replicated in the modern day.
Both Naples and Rome are within easy reach of the coastal region of Pompeii. They offer a range of holiday apartments for you to choose from, allowing you to extend your trip to the festival with a city break so you can capture the true Italian style.
