Full description

Get to know Verona, and Lake Garda on this day trip from Milan. Your guide will take you to the famous Shakespearean sights of Romeo & Juliet and the Roman amphitheater (outside only). And before your tour ends, marvel at incredible panoramic views of the country's largest lake.

After driving from Milan to Verona, you will be taken on a guided tour, following in the footsteps of William Shakespeare's famous play 'Romeo & Juliet'. You will get to see the famous balcony of the Capulet residence where Romeo was said to have called out to his beloved Juliet.

But Verona has a lot more to offer. Visit the famous Roman amphitheater, which was built in the 1st century AD, and where nowadays every summer Verona's well-known open-air operas take place, and see Piazza Mercato and other beautiful architectural places in downtown Verona.

For lunch, you will be given some free time to explore the city by yourself and optionally do some shopping or simply enjoy the picturesque old town in one of Verona's splendid cafés.

After lunch, we will continue our journey to Sirmione, a small fortified village at the end of a narrow peninsula that extends for about 4 km into Lake Garda and offers wonderful panoramic views on the eastern and western shores of the lake. 

Your guide will give you an extensive tour of the old town, before you may optionally join a boat tour on the lake.

This was a lovely tour and the time allocated to each area visited was perfect. The optional boat tide was refreshing and we were very lucky with the weather and our tour guide Salvatore who gave us a lot of information about the places visited and more. The bus for this tour was very new and clean and also we loved the stop on the way in Bauli.

I think the company runs the tour very well. Great accommodation to customers, free bottled water and points metro/ points of interests after visit. Verona was an amazing experience with lots of shopping and food options. Pricey and refined place to visit. Lake Garda was not as pretty as Lake Como in my opinion and there was not a lot of time to explore it (not the fault of the tour as lake Garda is the biggest lake in all of Italy). Guide was experienced and had expansive knowledge on the history and politics of the region. Sense of humour kept such educational matters enjoyable as well.

I went on the tour as a solo traveller and felt very included amongst the group. The guide on the bus was friendly and welcoming. Our Verona tour guide was very knowledgable and gave lots of interesting facts to us all. Sirmione in Lake Garda was absolutely gorgeous, and the boat ride was really special.
