This historic city is one of Italy’s loveliest. You’ll need a full day to do Verona justice, so this excursion is the perfect way to get to know the city, with free time to soak up the sights at your leisure.
You’ll start with a guided tour of Verona’s most famous sights, including the Roman Arena (home of the opera festival), Juliet's balcony, the Scaligeri tombs, Piazza dell' Erbe and Piazza Bra.
There will be plenty of free time to wander, too, so you can discover why Shakespeare chose to set so many plays here. Verona is an elegant sprawl of piazzas and picturesque lanes along the banks of the River Adige, and exploring on foot is the best way to see it. Surrounding the city are leafy hills topped with terracotta churches – perfect for a photo op.
We say: “Verona is so close to Lake Garda that a visit here is definitely worth doing. This excursion is a great way to see the city’s sights, including the Roman amphitheatre, one of the best in Italy (where they hold the Verona Opera Festival).” Lara Crowe, Product Executive
