Verona is a beautiful and romantic city, a prosperous medieval town in its own and also a popular tourist destination. Step back into Shakespearean times and call for your Romeo from Juliet's balcony or visit the exceptionally preserved ancient Roman Arena where during the summer concerts and operas are still performed. You will also have free time to explore the narrow medieval streets and the renaissance palace that make up Verona's historic centre.
The stunning lakeside towns around Lake Garda have fascinated visitors for centuries. The first people to fall in love with the area were the Romans, who made it a luxurious summer destination; and in Sirmione you can visit ruins and mosaics that mark their presence.
Sirmione, which lies between the blue waters of Lake Garda and green olive trees, is undoubtedly one of the most romantic places on earth and its beauty has been praised by Roman poet Catullus since the early days. Visit the narrow medieval streets that burst with colour, the moated castle, Rocca Scaligera or take a wander through the towns most striking attraction, the grand Roman villa. Here you can admire the ruined walls and archaeological delights, including a charming carving of rabbits in the small museum.

The guides were informational and engaging. Verona and Sirmione are beautiful locations and well worth a visit. The timing of the trip is well divided between the two locations.

The day tour is well organised and arranged. If the departure time is not that early, the meeting point for getting on the bus is more clearly and the tour guider's English is less accent, that would be perfect. Overall is well done.
