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.

The unique blue of Lake Garda’s waters and its stunning natural surrounds renders this area utterly unforgettable. With the Riviera of Olives extending across the lake’s south, the area looks markedly Mediterranean, yet the landscape changes entirely around Monte Baldo to the north. Ancient castles and churches rich in history rise up amongst the rocky landscape, forming a sentinel for the evocative little nearby ports.Sirmione still retains traces of its Roman soul in the Catullus’ Villa and Catullus’ Grotte. The Romans constructed dual castles, twin harbors, a settlement and the vast villa rising up atop rocks to tower imposingly over the waterway. Not even the darkest times in the Peninsula’s enduring history have managed to dull the splendor of Sirmione, which has seen the Romans, Cimbrians, Goths, Avars, Scaligers and Venetians all enamored by its charm. An iconic fortress stands on the principal harbor, its grace and strength rendering it utterly stunning.
