What You Can Expect

Verona and Lake Garda Day Trip from Milan

Lake Garda

Verona is rich in archaeological sites, with a beautiful medieval center. The Roman arena, where concerts and operas are performed in summer, is the city's grandest sight, but 'Juliet's balcony' is the principal point of interest for lovers of Shakespeare. You'll have free time to explore the narrow streets lined with impressive medieval and Renaissance buildings in Verona's historic center.

The beautiful lakeside towns around Lago di Garda have charmed foreign visitors for centuries. The area was a summer resort area for the ancient Romans, and in Sirmione and Desenzano you can visit the ruins and mosaics that record their presence.

The pretty town of Sirmione is on the southern shore of Lake Garda, perched on the end of a long promontory. Sirmione's beautiful setting was praised by the Roman poet Catullus. The town's narrow medieval streets bustle with color and life, and its most striking feature is the moated castle, Rocca Scaligera. Take a wander through a ruined Roman villa and admire archaeological finds - including a charming carving of rabbits in the small museum.

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.
