The departure is at 8.30 am from Piazzale Roma, where you will meet your private driver who will drive you to the first stop on our tour: Verona. The private tour from Venice will first stop at Castel San Pietro for you to enjoy breathtaking views of the city of Verona.

After this brief pleasurable break, your visit to Verona will begin: a walk in the historic center will feel like a journey through time lasting 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 save some time to soak up the most authentic atmosphere in Verona that reigns over the alleys and squares of the historic center. You can decide to admire architectural masterpieces such as the Duomo and the churches of Santa Anastasia and San Zeno Maggiore, but also check out Giardino Giusti, considered among the most beautiful in Italy.

After stopping in Verona, the itinerary will proceed towards the second stage: the Valpolicella area. Situated in the sun-kissed hills north-west of Verona, this wine region is one of the major food and wine destinations in the Veneto region. Do not miss the chance to taste traditional local dishes at a typical restaurant in the area (such as tortelli all'Amarone, potato dumplings, suckling pig with apples, but also local cheeses and homemade desserts and much more), as well as include in the itinerary some of the most renowned wineries in the area: here you can learn about winemaking techniques and taste the ending products directly on site! Once again, you can decide whether to follow our advice - have lunch at the famous 'Trattoria alla Ruota' and visit one of the wineries amongst Quintarelli farm, Allegrini Winery and Alighieri estate - or plan your stops independently: just let us know at the time of the booking request and we will do our best to plan everything as best as we can!

After the Valpolicella tasting itinerary, the visit will continue to Villa Giona at San Pietro in Cairano. 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 chance to visit the villa and its splendid garden, precious testimonies of the rural tradition of this incomparable timeless region.

The excursion will then reach Lake Garda on an itinerary packed with startling views. Fully at ease and inspired by the splendid landscape, you will arrive in Sirmione for a visit to its alluring alleyways sided by ancient churches and picturesque local craft shops. The historic center of Sirmione, built around the Castle Scaligero, which features characteristic 'swallow-tailed' battlements, stands in an enviable position when compared to all the other towns along Lage Garda and offers unmatched panoramic views.

Before returning to Venice you will also be offered the opportunity to visit Villa Feltrinelli in Salò, where you can take a coffee break before returning to Venice, where arrival is expected at around 5.30-6.00 pm.
