Itinerary

  • You will be picked up from the starting point of the tour (depending on your location) and taken for this exciting Discover Verona tour.

    All tours are conducted by coach and led by a knowledgeable bilingual guide who speaks English and German.

    Your coach will take you all around this lovely city, which Shakespeare selected as the setting for literature’s most doomed love affair.

    Visit the San Zeno Basilica, as famous for being the site of Romeo and Juliet’s ill-fated marriage as for its venerable Romanesque façade and austere bell tower.

    Behold the Verona Arena, a miraculously-preserved Roman amphitheater dating from 30 AD. There’s room for more than 30,000 spectators in this colossal stadium, and people used to come from far and wide during the zenith of the Roman Empire to see the shows and gladiator games staged there.

    The five temple-like funerary monuments that comprise the Scaliger Tombs are a tribute to the family that ruled Verona from the 13th to the late 14th century.

    Visit Juliet’s House, a building dating from the 12th century that was owned for many years by the Dal Cappello family. The consonance between the names Cappello and Capulet has afforded the property a place in legend, and a balcony has been added to evoke the immortal scene where Romeo and Juliet first confess their devouring love for each other.

    Make your way to Verona’s expansive market place and enjoy free time for shopping. Only about 1 and a half-hour of this 9-10 hour tour will be guided, giving you plenty of time to explore the city on your own.

    All tours will end where they began.
