1. Verona & Amarone Full-Day Tour from Venice
Discover the magic of the wonderful city of Verona and the regions of Amarone and Valpolicella. Head over to the medieval towns of the Valpolicella region and enjoy a chance to visit the 13th-century church of San Giorgio. There, admire the church's splendid altar, dating back to 712 A.D., as well as some of the most beautiful panoramic views of Sirmione and Lake Garda. From here, drive to a vineyard to have a guided visit and learn more about the famous Amarone wine. Taste some of the different wines they produce and have a chance to purchase a few bottles to take with you, such as Amarone and Recioto della Valpolicella. Onward, travel to the city of Verona at Piazza Bra, where the world-famous Roman Amphitheater – the 3rd largest in Italy - is located. It dates back to the 1st-Century A.D. and boasts more than 22,000 seats, making it a perfect venue for outdoor operas and concerts. Enjoy approximately 3 hours of free time (with optional lunch) to enable you to visit the house of Juliet (from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet), the historical Piazza delle Erbe, and some of the exclusive shops around the city. Then just sit back and enjoy the views as you return to Venice.
