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.

This was a fun trip from Milan our guide was very good. Verona is an interesting old city and the city guide was very good. Juliet's house is tacky and touristy but we enjoyed the walk through this old city. The Lake Garda part was a highlight of the trip, especially since we were able to take a short boat ride on the lake. We had some down time in Sirmione and great gelato. Definitely a worthwhile trip.

This was out of this world. Wonderful tour guide Luigi,very professional and the sights are incredible. we also ended in sermonette,very quaint town full of beautiful shops. Felt like Bellagio in lake cuomo,but with a twist. Highly recommend it.

Verona has a lot more to see than just the R and J balcony.
Sirmione castle is cute but we ran out of time shopping so could not try the gelato by the castle.

The guide in Verona was outstanding --an art historian. The boat ride on Lake Garda was really fun. Our tour guide was inexperienced although he was pleasant. He really did not look after the group.

Not really knowing what to expect with this tour. I enjoyed this visit very much. Folks don't talk about Verona as much other locations. This city was incredible, it was sunny and our tour guide in town Francesca walked us around giving incredible viewpoints, commencing with the visit to Juliet's area and statue which was a pleasant mob scene of folks trying to get pictures and around the balcony. Visually a great place to spend more time at some point, in my opinion. Luigi was our main guide and after lunch we went about 30 minutes away to Lake Garda which was an awesome place and visit as well. Once again, it was wonderful to be exposed to these two locations and wonderful areas I'd known very little about. Well worth the time!
