An incredible day excursion from Venice with a private driver.
Meet your private driver in Venice’s Piazzale Roma at 9:00 or 9:30 am before setting off on a full-day private tour exploring the stunning area south of Venice.Fall in love at first sight with Verona, whose city walls have stood for over two millennia, embracing a unique and breath-taking range of artworks and monuments within. This is the town immortalized by Shakespeare in his ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and ‘The Two Gentlemen of Verona’, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to the impressive architecture and striking urban fabric. Stroll along the cobbled streets, step into the picturesque piazzas and be awestruck by the Arena, where some of the world’s greatest performers have taken the stage.
See history reflected in the blue waters of Lake Garda, celebrated by the eminent Roman poet, Catullus. See the splendors of nature – the smooth waters, rocky cliff faces and majestic greenery – juxtaposed with the historic churches and castles that rise up throughout these lands. Spy the olive and lemon tree groves that have adorned these landscapes since Roman times, still producing typical products savored by locals and visitors alike.
Visit the charming and historic township of Sirmione, with its cluster of imposing castles, watchtowers and stately villas encircled by dual harbors, all overlooked by an imposing fortress.
Verona is a fascinating junction of classical and Germanic cultures, seeing the intermingling of Nordic and Mediterranean facets. Ancient yet modern, it has preserved its Roman hallmarks whilst evolving into a thriving city second only to Rome, whilst the Verona Arena, constructed in the 1st century A.D., is the third largest amphitheater in Italy.
