Day 2 Verona

An important Roman city, Verona is still thriving today and plays host to a rich collection of archaeological sites, with 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 and you will attend an opera performance amidst this grandest of settings.
Our included guided tour of Verona includes a visit to the arena, along with all the other important sights. You'll visit Juliet's balcony, the supposed romantic setting for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, and the old Roman Forum. There will be time to admire Castelvecchio, a fortress displaying impressive Gothic architecture, and the lively open-air market in Piazza delle Erbe is the perfect spot to browse or perhaps stop for lunch. This afternoon you are free to make your own discoveries. For splendid views you could climb the steps of St Pietro Castle or maybe admire the elaborate Scaligeri Tombs.
This evening you will return to the Roman Arena for a truly memorable evening of opera.
