Travel in High-Speed Comfort

Reach Verona in just over one hour in the comfort of a high-speed train from Venice, where your guide will be ready to welcome you. Your air-conditioned coach will transfer you from the station to the historic city center in just a matter of minutes, saving plenty of time for exploration.

Uncover More with our Expert Guides

Bask in the romantic atmosphere, and with the help of your expert guide, relive Verona’s fascinating past. This beautifully preserved old town and its original architecture have been declared a World Heritage site by Unesco.

Feel as if you’re traveling through the past by walking along the walls of Castelvecchio, which is an impressive, beautifully preserved medieval castle. Throughout the tour, we will see other landmarks related to the Scaligeri family's powerful dynasty, such as the monumental family mausoleum and other administrative palaces, such as the Palazzo della Ragione.

Visit the most iconic monument in the city, the stunning Arena: a nearly 2000-year-old Roman Amphitheater. Our Skip the Line Access allows us swift entry inside the Arena, so we have more time to admire it throughout. The Arena is the best preserved of its kind, thought to be older than the Colosseum in Rome.

See Iconic Sights like Juliet's Balcony

No tour of Verona would be complete without a visit to the famous courtyard of Juliet’s house, which is home to the statue of Juliet and from where we can see Juliet’s balcony. Every day there is a pilgrimage of visitors, who come here to hang love messages on the wall of the courtyard, and to touch the statue of Juliet for good luck. Try your luck too and walk past the house of her troubled lover, Romeo, while your guide tells you about the evocative places that inspired Shakespeare’s masterpiece.

Continue your Verona tour by covering the most significant landmarks of the city, such as the monumental Porta Borsari, an ancient Roman city wall, and the stunning Piazza delle Erbe. This square was designated as the most beautiful square in the world in 2012, a title that originally belonged to the Roman Forum. Remaining in pristine condition, Piazza delle Erbe still showcases colorful frescoes on the façades of its medieval buildings.

Time to Explore Verona at your Own Pace

Now it’s time to traverse the city at our own pace during the allocated free time. Verona offers a variety of shops, restaurants, and cafes overlooking its iconic squares. Your expert guide will give you the best tips on where to try some of the delicacies for dinner, as well as some delicious gelato. Your transfer will be ready for you at the end of your free time so that you can get to the station comfortably and on time for your train back to Venice.
