Itinerary

​Today you'll fly to Verona, an important Roman city in the Veneto region of north-east Italy, which is still thriving today. Enjoy a welcome drink at your hotel, giving you the chance to get to know your travelling companions.

​Verona plays host to a rich collection of archaeological sites – perhaps the most impressive being the 15,000-seat Roman Arena. One of Italy's great travel experiences, this ancient amphitheatre is a must-see with or without the added spectacle of an opera performance. 

Of course, during your holiday, opera is the star attraction and, along with your travelling companions, you'll attend two performances here in this grandest of settings, which back in the 1st century AD played host to bloody gladiatorial battles. 

On the evenings of your visits, you'll also enjoy a pre-opera dinner at your hotel and transfers to Piazza Bra, home of the Roman Arena, from where you can soak up the magical atmosphere before the unforgettable main event. 

To help you get to know the city we include a half-day guided sightseeing tour of Verona's highlights on day 2. Our first stop is Juliet's balcony, the supposed setting for Shakespeare's tragic love story Romeo and Juliet, before we head to the old Roman Forum, Piazza Erbe, where there's a lively open-air market, and Castelvecchio, a fortress displaying impressive Gothic architecture and seven imposing towers. There's free time for lunch and an afternoon at leisure. For views over Verona maybe climb the steps of St Pietro Castle, visit the Roman Theatre, which dates back to the time of Augustus, or perhaps admire the elaborate Scaligeri Tombs, funerary monuments to one of the city's most influential families.

There is so much to see and do in this region of Italy, and our choice of optional excursions helps you to discover many wonderful highlights. Perhaps head to beautiful Lake Garda. On this excursion you'll also explore the lakeside resort of Sirmione, which is dominated by a 13th century castle, and take a boat trip to the town of Garda. Wine-lovers might be tempted by our winery tour in the prestigious Valpolicella region. We'll head to a traditional farm to learn about the unique rich red Amarone, which is produced by drying out the grapes over several months, with a tasting included alongside local produce. ​

​We'll transfer to the airport today for our flight back to the UK. ​
