Itinerary

  • DAY 1 UK to Verona
  • ​Today you'll fly to Verona, an important Roman city in the Veneto region of north-east Italy, which is still thriving today. Enjoy a welcome drink at your hotel, giving you the chance to get to know your travelling companions.
  • DAY 2 Verona
  • An important Roman city, Verona is still thriving today and plays host to a rich collection of archaeological sites, with perhaps the most impressive being the 15,000-seat Roman Arena. One of Italy's great travel experiences, this ancient amphitheatre is a must-see and you will attend an opera amidst this grandest of settings, which also hosted gladiatorial battles in the 1st century AD.
    Our included guided tour of Verona includes a visit to the Roman Arena along with all the other important sights. You'll visit Juliet's balcony, the supposed romantic setting for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, and the old Roman Forum. There will be time to admire Castelvecchio, a fortress displaying impressive Gothic architecture and the lively open-air market in Piazza delle Erbe is the perfect spot to browse or perhaps stop for lunch. This afternoon you are free to make your own discoveries. For splendid views you could climb the steps of St Pietro Castle or maybe admire the elaborate Scaligeri Tombs.
    This evening you will return to the Roman Arena for a truly memorable evening of opera.
  • DAY 3 Lake Garda
  • ​Enjoy a day to explore at your own pace or join our optional excursion to Lake Garda. Highlights   include the lakeside resort of Sirmione, dominated by a 13th century castle and home to impressive Roman ruins, and a lake cruise to the town of Garda.
  • DAY 4 Valpolicella region
  • ​​Today we offer you an optional tour to the prestigious Valpolicella wine region. We'll visit a traditional winery and learn about the unique red Amarone and the special production process- from grape to glass. Your tour concludes with a wine tasting accompanied by locally produced meats and cheeses.
    This evening will be another included Opera performance, at the Arena, after dinner at the hotel.
