Full description
Discover the magic of the wonderful city of Verona and the regions of Amarone and Valpolicella. On this tour we will head over to the medieval towns of the Valpolicella region and a chance to visit the 13th century church of San Giorgio with its splendid altar dating back to 712 A.D., where there are some of the most beautiful panoramic views of Sirmione and Lake Garda. From here we drive to a vineyard to have a guided visit and learn more about the famous Amarone wine. We will enjoy tasting some of the different wines they produce and a chance to purchase a few bottles to take with you, such as Amarone and Recioto della Valpolicella. Onwards we 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. You will have 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 we return to Venice.

Extremely good tour and driver.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the driver was very good, as there is quite a lot of time motoring through the industrial area before arriving at the interesting parts of the tour. We loved the ancient town to which the driver took us. It was a pity the coffee shop was closed (because it was Monday) however we had a treat because there were some wonderful musicians playing (by chance) music composed by Mendelssohn in the Church! The countryside and views were lovely and Verona was very special. Everything there was much better than our expectations - streets, buildings, shops, gardens, arena, cafes/restaurants/places to eat, - and it was such fun to see "Juliet's balcony". We're so happy we went.

Good excursion. Only objection, a lot of time is lost in the Winery, which shortens the time of visit to the historical places and cities, not being able to know relics of history, as was the colosseum. You should review those times.
