Verona is a truly impressive city which came to prominence in Roman times and boasts an outstanding cultural and architectural heritage, including well-preserved mediaeval palaces and frescoed churches. At its heart is the ancient arena, where some of Italy's finest opera seduces the senses every year between June and September. Shakespeare chose to set his romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, in this beautiful city and it is definitely a place to fall in love.
It is not just the Opera Season that keeps this city in the limelight. The history and architecture of this beautiful city have plenty to offer year-round and is a perfect city break destination. A short stay in the historic city of Verona coupled with a stay on the shores of Lake Garda makes for a unique holiday experience, combining the wonderful experience of the city with the stunning scenery of Lake Garda, experienced from one of our favourite boutique hotels.
The most popular towns in the vicinity of Verona are Sirmione, Limone, Riva Del Garda & Malcesine - we can combine any of them with Verona in a multi-centre holiday to give you best of both worlds. We take all of the stress out of planning your holiday, as we can organise private walking tours in Verona City as well as opera tickets and private excursions on the Lake, with a private driver at your disposal. Please discuss your requirements for your multi-centre holiday with our friendly team who will be delighted to tailor the perfect itinerary for you.
