Valpolicella and Verona Day Trip from Venice is a day trip from Venice with private English speaking driver to Romeo and Juliet’s Verona city.
Thanks to William Shakespeare’s brilliantly written tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Verona gained its fame for being one of the world’s most beautiful romantic cities! During the private guided walking tour enjoy the historical city center with many crenellated towers, see from outdoor the roman Arena built by the romans in the 1st century A.D, just few years before the Coliseum of Rome was built. Walk along medieval alleys and square learning about stories and anecdotes of Verona and its aristocratic families such as the Capuleti and the Montecchi. All of the sudden, you will be able to see the house of Juliet built in the 13th century and her balcony from where she used to face to see Romeo, remember to climb the step and touch Juliet’s brass left boob while making a wish for eternal love!
After your 2 hours private guided tour of Verona city center, board your private car / minivan to proceed to the Verona’s countryside with your private driver. Along the Veneto hills, view all the famous vineyards of Valpolicella grape from where they make the delicious robust fruity wine. To make a day special, we highly suggest combining a wine tasting with local delicious dishes and among them we definitely highly recommended the “Risotto all’ Amarone della Valpolicella” as the rice is blended and cooked with Amarone wine!
Our tour will offer to you an opportunity to see not only Verona but also the countryside where local traditions are still very strong.
