This activity will end right where it started.
Begin your day trip at a central location in Milan. Meet your guide and hop aboard a comfortable coach, where you’ll journey toward Verona, the setting of Shakespeare’s famed Romeo and Juliet.

Upon arriving, explore the city center on a 2-hour, guided walking tour. See the main squares of Piazza delle Erbe and step out onto 'Juliet's balcony' at the house of Juliet, rumored to be the former abode of the ‘real life’ Juliet from whom Shakespeare drew his inspiration. After visiting this romantic attraction, stop by the Roman Arena, the popular amphitheater where concerts and operas are held in the summertime. Then head to Piazza Bra, Verona's main square, and enjoy some free time to purchase lunch and explore the city on your own.

Reunite with your guide after roughly an hour and hop back on your bus toward Lake Garda, once a summer resort area for the ancient Romans. Stop at the beautiful lakeside village of Sirmione and soak up more free time to explore the medieval streets and the moated castle of Rocca Scaligera. Hit the water with a 30-minute cruise on Lake Garda (own expense), or wander through a ruined Roman villa and admire archaeological finds.

After a full day of exploration, your day trip will conclude at your original departure point in Milan.

Nice way to spend a day
, May 2022
Very nice day trip from Milan. I would suggest taking the optional boat tour in Lake Garda. It was a nice 25min tour and we were glad to have done it. Verona was nice. We did the tour with the guide and then had two hours on our own for lunch, exploring or shopping. We hit a hot spell, nearly 90 degrees and it was hot and muggy. The bus had great ac which was great.

Great value and very interesting
, Apr 2022
The tour was great value and really interesting to learn about the history of Italy. Our guide Max was lovely and so friendly & knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend this. We did the Verona and Lake Garda tour which worked well as it was a mixture of places to experience.

Lovely tour of Verona and Lake Garda with Serena and the coach driver. Very well organised and Serena spoke very good English and instructions when we were left to our own devices was concise and clear. Possibly would've liked a little more time at Lake Garda but all in all a lovely day out.

Amazing Sites outside of Milan to visit
, Sep 2019
Verona is incredible - the bridge, the lake, the towers, the castles and the coliseum. There were only like 15 of us on the trip which makes the tour easier for us to listen to the guide. She is obviously very knowledgeable about the Province of Verona, its rich history. The only criticism I have is she is too technical. I wish she injects a little bit of relatable stories about the province which makes it more interesting. The day of the tour was also too warm, but it was nice tour. Would recommend it.
Verona & Lake Garda
, Jul 2019
Two beautiful places not to be missed .I know everybody like to go to Lake Como but there is something unique about Lake Garda .With Verona we were lucky to have visited Juliet's balcony early before the crowd built up . My compliments to our guide Sylvia . She was knowledgeable well spoken and very attentive
Great day out

Great tour and was lovely to see Verona and the Roman area - the Juilet balcony area was extremely busy but was good that the tour guide showed us were to go and then left us with the option to visit in our spare time. Loved Lake Garda and actually preferred this lake for the water views and more relaxed then Lake Como - if I had the option to only visit one lake whilst in Milan it would be Lake Garda

, Jul 2018
This was a fun trip. Our group was fairly large, but it was still fun. The whole Juliet's balcony experience with all the people was fun and seeing one of Rome's Colosseums there was also neat. The best part was the Lake Garda boat ride. Our captain was very entertaining and it was a refreshing way to end the day.
Beautiful and informative
, Jun 2018
The tour was very informative about both visits. The tour leader made sure she provided us with knowledge about the history of Verona and Lago di Garda and was very helpful. Both places are majestic. Verona is a beautiful city which i fell in love with. Lago di Garda provides views of the Austrian mountains. Both provide a really nice walking tours

We booked this trip as a secondary trip so we were not expecting too much. But we were more than pleasantly surprised. Verona its very nice town, with beautiful landscapes and buildings, many shops, good restaurants. The Verona guide was really good, very knowledgeable and provided many information. The lake Garda was another nice part of the trip, we didnt take the boat ride after reading other reviews and we were happy we didnt. It gave us more time to enjoy the town and lets say a speed boat its not really our thing. Overall, with the exception of the bus which was not very comfortable, leg room as in a plane all was perfect.

Early start but well worth the effort. Walking tour of Verona is amazing, guide gives you little facts you wouldn't get wandering alone. The main piazza is beautiful place to enjoy a meal and drinks. Garda too was lovely and picturesque. For €10 the boat trip is definitely worth it. Excellent day !

This was a wonderful day spent in the most beautiful part of Northern Italy. After a comfortable drive we arrived in the medieval city of Verona and had an interesting walk through the city. We visited Juliette's balcony which is quite disappointing and rather small and overly touristy. We then visited the Roman amphitheatre which is similar to but smaller than the Colisseum in Rome. Ther are lots of excellent restaurants in Verona and we had a very good lunch. Then it was onto Lake Garda which is very beautiful and scenic. The tour included a boat ride on the lake but it was an uncovered boat and my wife would have been too cold in this type of boat. This was a pity and should be looked at for future trips. Nevertheless we enjoyed a walk through the little town and would definitely recommend this trip to future travelers.

, Jan 2018
Verona is a really charming city, with unique historical and cultural dimensions. The guide had really good English and could easily be understood, making it more possible to follow up and inform oneself about several features that this city brings, ranging from architectural beauties, to Piazza delle Erbe, to the arena, and the mysterious Juliet balcony. A must do if visiting the Veneto region in Italy!

It was a long day. We had trouble finding the bus, but once we found it all went well. A little more information with the address and the location to find the bus would have been helpful, as we were walking around Milano in the dark, trying to figure it out. Thank goodness for helpful Italians! Tour guide in Verona was outstanding.

The tour was well organized with knowledgeable guides. The local guide in Verona was exceptional! Time was given to enjoy the cities or have a leisurely bite to eat...found a place with great food frequented by locals down a side street in Verona. We were given an option to have a boat ride on Lake Garda. It turned out to be a speed boat going around the peninsula for the old city portion of Sirmione. I would have preferred spending more time walking in the old city.
