Enter a world of literary enchantment and historical intrigue as you explore one of Italy's authentic hidden gems on our luxury Verona from Venice Day Trip.

You'll meet your driver in central Venice and board your air-conditioned vehicle for the one-hour drive to Venice. Once there you'll be joined by a local guide; an authentic Veronese, passionate about sharing their city. Your drop-off point is at the city's most stunning overlook, where you'll to get a feel for a place that doesn't just have UNESCO World Heritage Sites, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Descend the hill, cross the river and pass through the city walls into the historic center. With your local guide you'll go first to the enormous Verona Cathedral, an architectural marvel with incredible historic roots. Then it's on to atmospheric Piazza delle Erbe, surrounded with incredible Medieval buildings and, believe it or not, a whale rib.

A highlight of the day is Verona's amphitheater - a massive structure comparable only to the Colosseum, but so much less touristed. Your guide will bring you inside to see it in all its glory, giving you time to scale its height for wonderful views over the city. Another great vantage point on your tour (there are so many), comes when you walk the city walls.

Lunch is not included in the cost of the tour because Verona boasts an incredible food scene and we want you to be able to try the places that interest you or get a recommendation from your guide, who is always happy to point you in the direction of local favorites.

Of course, you'll also get the real story behind Verona's two most famous lovers - Romeo and Juliet. As you see their houses from the outside, you'll learn to separate fact from fiction and why Shakespeare set his immortal love story in this particular city.

Verona is the perfect size for a day trip from Venice. In just one day you'll cover the best of it. You'll see all of the highlights, enjoy its most beautiful piazzas, enter its most beautiful buildings and even walk most of its important streets. After your tour your guide will give you tickets for the high speed train back to Venice and walk you to the platform.

For something a little different from your Venice vacation, take a day to explore one of Italy's most romantic and underappreciated wonders.

It was a very pleasant day in Verona. The transportation was comfortable and the guide excellent, well informed and interesting to listen to. I liked it that we took the train back to Venice.
