To Verona

Today, travel by coach to Verona, the city made famous in Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet.' Straddling the Adige River in north-east Italy's Veneto region, the handsome and dynamic city of Verona is both a popular destination with visitors and a UNESCO World Heritage site thanks to the diversity and historical value of its architecture. Enjoy a guided city tour, exploring the vast Roman arena - an imposing amphitheatre built by the Romans in the first century AD, which is now used as an open air opera house - Juliet's balcony and the magnificent city gates.

The charming narrow streets and picturesque piazzas of Verona make the city a pleasure to explore, while an abundance of pavement cafés offer the perfect opportunity to relax with a drink, savour the atmosphere and watch the world go by - a truly Italian pastime.

Isola Del Garda
Day 6

At Leisure

Your day is free to spend as you wish; perhaps visit the stunning Isola del Garda, the biggest island in Lake Garda. Dominated by an impressive neo-Gothic villa, it can be reached only by boat. The island is owned by the Cavazza family, but over the centuries it had various names which were nearly always linked to the different owners.

One of its main attractions is the extraordinary Venetian neo-Gothic style villa, designed by the architect Luigi Rovelli at the beginning of the 20th century. Below the villa, the terraces and Italian gardens slope down to the lake. The villa's gardens are rich in local and exotic plants, rare essences and unique flowers. The island also has a small wood of pines and cypresses, acacias and lemon trees, magnolias and agaves.

This afternoon, you are free to continue exploring. Venice is entirely car-free, which ensures that exploration on foot or by gondola is a thoroughly pleasurable experience. And there is much to discover: Venice is steeped in architectural wonder and artistic beauty at every turn, from the Gothic magnificence of the Doge's Palace to the Tintoretto-decorated Scuola Grande di San Rocco. Add a rich profusion of churches, art galleries, museums, and cultural attractions, fine shops and restaurants and a relaxed, cosmopolitan atmosphere and it's easy to see why romantic and remarkable Venice is one of the most visited cities on earth.
