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.

Verona is a really charming city, with unique historical and cultural dimensions. The guide had really good English and could easily be understood, making it more possible to follow up and inform oneself about several features that this city brings, ranging from architectural beauties, to Piazza delle Erbe, to the arena, and the mysterious Juliet balcony. A must do if visiting the Veneto region in Italy!

Great trip. Verona tour guide was good and we had some free time to walk on our own which was great. The best surprise of the trip was the Lake Garda trip where we stopped at Sirmione which was amazing. Highly recommend this tour

The tour was well organized with knowledgeable guides. The local guide in Verona was exceptional! Time was given to enjoy the cities or have a leisurely bite to eat...found a place with great food frequented by locals down a side street in Verona. We were given an option to have a boat ride on Lake Garda. It turned out to be a speed boat going around the peninsula for the old city portion of Sirmione. I would have preferred spending more time walking in the old city.

Loved this tour, what a fantastic tour guide. I got myself into a troubling situation and the tour guide kindly helped me out and resolved the situation, thank you Mauricio! Even gave me tips on what to see in Milan on the way back from this trip. Verona was so pretty, great walking tour. The Lake Garda was very beautiful too, perhaps a bit more time in the Lake Garda would have been better. We were well looked after. Highly recommend this tour!

Bus driver brilliant and polite, bus guide interesting, attentive and quietly protective in the city subtly kept an eye and track of tour members. Verona City guide just exceptional very knowledgeable but more importantly passionate. He grew up in Verona and was very clever and humorous with his delivery. Garda was stunning and the bus brings you to what feels like a very exclusive point of the lake, an area I would never afford to stay so unlikely to see otherwise.
If you have a spare day during you time in Milan this so worth your money.
Just like to add me and my partner are 24-25, upon booking were unsure whether the pace might be too slow as we have not done this style trip before, but was very enjoyable. Only slight thing to improve is we would have liked more time to explore the roman ruins in Garda, however this was probably not down to the organisers as we were stuck in traffic due to an accident on the motorway. This lost time may have been exactly what we needed
All in all brilliant day and certainly a highlight of our trip in North Italy.
