A Night at the Opera

Teatro Petruzzelli - Bari
Teatro Petruzzelli in Bari is one of the great opera houses of Italy and easily accessible from Lecce by train. Badly damaged by a fire in 1991, it has been completely restored and reopened in 2009.

The opportunity to go to the opera while we are there in September is just too good to pass up. Can't wait.

There is still time to leap in and join us for four fantastic weeks in sunny southern Italy this September, from $AUD5750. Prices quoted are ex-Australia and in Australian dollars. International enquiries are very welcome. Price will be adjusted according to your location and currency.

Meet Peppino Ciraci and the fabled Pasticiotto



Meet Italian film maker Peppino Ciraci. He is Gianna Greco's husband.

Anyway, Peppino has made this short film paying homage to the Pasticiotto, fabled dessert of the Salento region of Puglia. Enjoy....
