Departure & Return
Meeting point is at Piazza Brà (the square with the Roman arena) under the equestrian statue of King Vittorio Emanuele.
What To Expect
First, you’ll check out Verona Arena, the city’s millennia-old Roman amphitheater, which was built decades before Rome’s Colosseum. Once the site of gladiatorial battle, the stadium is now used for large-scale opera performances that draw crowds from around the world.
Continue along the main shopping street of Via Mazzini, passing the Loggia Arvedi, and stop to gaze at Juliet’s House (Casa di Giulietta). The balconied house was built to celebrate Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, which was famously set in Verona.
Work your way through courtyards and alleyways to see the Scavi Scaligeri, an excavation site of Roman and medieval ruins. From here, you’ll visit the gothic Scala family tombs and see their first abode in the stately Piazza dei Signori. Hear about the noble family who once ruled the city, as you walk.
Pass more highlights such as the Lamberti Tower and the 14th-century Palazzo del Tribunale on your way to Piazza delle Erbe, site of the ancient Roman forum. Here, you’ll listen to fun facts about landmarks such as the Fountain of Madonna Verona, which is the symbol of the city, and the House of the Merchants. Continue on to find other quirky but less-well-known sites, such as the Well of Love, a landmark with a tragic legend.
When your tour ends, stroll with your guide to a nearby wine bar and relax with some wine. Sample a local red and white varietal along with some snacks to finish on a high note.
