Leave the Lake Garda region between 8am and 9:45am; the local operator will confirm your exact start time with you before you travel.
Then, sit back and relax on the journey south to the city of Verona. Known as the city of love, Verona is famous for its links to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet but it’s also home to astonishing Roman ruins, Renaissance art, and operatic heritage.
Learn all about the city as you explore landmark-thronged squares like Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza dei Signori. See Juliet’s House (Casa di Giulietta) with its famous balcony, and hear fun facts about the house that’s dedicated to Shakespeare’s iconic love story.
See the Ponte Pietra, and admire Verona’s vast Roman amphitheater that’s known simply as the Arena. The stadium is thought to have seated around 30,000 spectators in its heyday. Other landmarks on your itinerary include the gothic tombs of the Scala family and their castle — the Castelvecchio.
After lunch, enjoy some time at leisure to browse the chic shops of Via Mazzini. Later, you’ll head back to your coach for the journey back your start point in the Lake Garda region.
