Enter a world of literary enchantment and historical intrigue as you explore one of Italy's authentic hidden gems on our luxury Verona from Venice Day Trip.
Panoramic view of Verona
Ancient Roman amphitheatre
Your day starts early in Venice, from where an air-conditioned minibus will take you directly to a photo stop in Colle di San Pietro. Enjoy the panoramic view of Verona and learn to understand why it was the perfect setting for the world's greatest romance. Our tour starts at the foot of a castle, with a view of the city. The high towers, the castle walls, the river that surrounds its curves and much more. Verona is a very romantic city.
After a few breathtaking photos from the viewpoint, take a nice walk into town. On the way there you will make a detour to the ancient Roman amphitheatre, one of the largest amphitheatres in Italy and the best opera houses in the world. You will also visit the Cathedral of Verona outside and dive into the beautiful Basilica of Saint Anastasia.
Then we continue to Verona's top attraction: the home of Shakespeare's Juliet, where we can look out onto the famous balcony where Romeo is said to have courted Juliet. There is also a statue of Julia herself.
If this box is ticked, we will take you to the historic centre to discover the true history of the city, which served as a colourful backdrop for Shakespeare's classic. You will visit the beautiful squares, Piazza Bra and Piazza delle Erbe, to see Palazzo Maffei, Palazzo Barbieri (Town Hall) and the famous Mazzanti houses, whose facades with beautiful 16th century frescoes will also stop in Piazza Dante to pay homage to the statue of Italy's most famous writer.
Lunch is not included, so you can choose where to eat or ask your guide for recommendations. Local specialities are risotto, polenta and even donkey meat!
The afternoon includes a walk along the river, past the Casa di Romeo and two very famous arches, the ancient Roman gates of Porta Borsari and the Arco della Costa, where you will learn about one of the most bizarre local of all times.
You can also visit the tombs of the Scaligeri family - unbelievable examples of Gothic architecture, which house the remains of one of Verona's most important families, and stroll across the legendary bridge of Castelvecchio before your guide takes you back on the train to Venice.
Our small group tours offer you incomparable access to your expert, English-speaking tour guide. In their capable society, you will not only see Verona, you will go through the heart of its history and culture to get a deep, personal understanding of what makes it such a special place.
