Famously the setting for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, romantic Verona is one of Italy's most impressive Renaissance cities. It's easy to visit on a day trip from Milan, and to help you find the perfect tour, here's a rundown of your options.
The most convenient and cost-effective way to visit Verona is on a full-day group tour, traveling by bus or coach from Milan. Most tours include a walking tour of Verona's historic center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, including attractions such as the ancient Roman amphitheater, Juliet's Balcony, and Lamberti's Tower, as well as photo stops at the villages around Lake Garda.
