Thanks to the relaxed atmosphere offered by an exclusive private tour you can only dedicate yourself to the pleasure of discovery, traveling through sensational panoramas with private transfers.

The flexibility of an exclusive service, entirely dedicated to you and your specific needs, will allow you to experience this tour to Verona in complete freedom: in addition to the ‘essential’ stages, in fact, you can choose whether to use your free time in total autonomy or whether to plan further visits to your itinerary.

The departure is scheduled at 8.30, where you will meet your private driver who will take you to the first stop of our tour: Verona.

The private excursion from Venice includes a first stop at Castel San Pietro which will offer you a breathtaking view of the Scaliger city.

After this little moment of relaxation, your visit to Verona will begin: a walk in the historic center will give you a journey through time almost two thousand years.

The stop in Verona is free so you can choose which places to include in your itinerary, such as the Arena and Juliet’s house, without forgetting to keep time to savor the most authentic Veronese atmosphere that you breathe in the alleys and squares of the historical center.

You can decide to admire architectural masterpieces such as the Duomo and churches of Santa Anastasia and San Zeno Maggiore, but also to take advantage of a short visit to the Giusti Garden, considered among the most beautiful in Italy.

After stopping in Verona, the itinerary will proceed to the second stage: the Valpolicella area.
Located in the sunny hills north-west of Verona, this wine region is one of the major food & wine destinations in Veneto. You will not miss the opportunity to taste traditional local dishes at a typical restaurant in the area (such as tortelli with Amarone, potato gnocchi, pork with apples, but also local cheeses and homemade desserts and much more), as well as to include in the itinerary some of the most famous wineries in the area: here you can learn about winemaking techniques and taste the results directly on site.

Also in this case, you can decide whether to follow our advice – have lunch at the famous ‘Trattoria alla Ruota’ and visit a winery between the Quintarelli farm, the Allegrini winery and the Alighieri estate – or organize the stops independently : just let us know at the time of booking request and we will do our best to organize everything in the best way!

After Valpolicella, the visit will resume at a time of Villa Giona at San Pietro in Cariano.
It is a splendid example of a Venetian villa dating back to the 15th century, perched on the eastern slopes of the Castelrotto hill. You will have the opportunity to visit the villa and its splendid garden, precious testimonies of the rural tradition of this incomparable timeless territory.

The excursion will then proceed to Garda Lake through a path full of unexpected views. Completely relaxed and satisfied by the splendid view, you will arrive in Sirmione, where a visit to the center awaits you among suggestive alleys that house ancient churches and picturesque local craft shops.

The historic center of Sirmione, built around the Scaliger castle with the characteristic ‘dovetail’ battlements, boasts a unique position compared to all the other places on Lake Garda, offering an unparalleled panorama.

Before returning you will be offered the opportunity to also visit Villa Feltrinelli in Salo’, where you can treat yourself to a coffee break before returning to Venice, scheduled around 5.30 pm.
