What You Can Expect

Verona and Lake Garda Day Trip from Milan

Lake Garda

Begin your day trip with pickup in Milan. Meet your guide and hop aboard a comfortable coach, where you’ll journey toward Verona, the setting of Shakespeare’s famed Romeo and Juliet.

Upon arriving, explore the city center on a 2-hour, guided walking tour. See the main squares of Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza Bra, as well as the Roman Arena, the popular amphitheater where concerts and operas are held in the summertime. Then, head to the city’s most romantic attraction: the house of Juliet, rumored to be the former abode of the ‘real life’ Juliet from whom Shakespeare drew his inspiration. Step out on ‘Juliet’s balcony’ before enjoying some free time to purchase lunch and explore the city on your own.

Reunite with your guide after roughly an hour and hop back on your bus toward Lake Garda, once a summer resort area for the ancient Romans. Stop at the beautiful lakeside village of Sirmione and soak up more free time to explore the medieval streets and the moated castle of Rocca Scaligera. Hit the water with a 30-minute cruise on Lake Garda (own expense), or wander through a ruined Roman villa and admire archaeological finds.

After a full day of exploration, your day trip will conclude at your original departure point in Milan.

Our trip was amazing , our guide Andre was very helpful and very informative. The bus trip was very comfortable you are on the bus a few hours but so worth the destinations , Verona was just beautiful , and free time was enjoyable. The colleseum was amazing.
The next part of the trip was Lake Garda and Sirmione was just breathtaking. The boat ride around the castle was fantastic and the little village was just magic. We would highly recommend this tour it was fantastic.
