Great location for the annual Opera Festival. I have been going there many times over the last 30 years, and I must say that the arena Sferisterio is a unique place to enjoy the magic of the "opera lirica". I recommend watching the opera at...More
Whether or not you are an opera buff, Sferisterio is well worth while visiting because its enormous stage is unique, in the shape of a sphere - hence the name. They only perform three operas each season, and whilst the city does not have too...More
