Art and food are at their best in this appealing daily tour, which connects Verona and its important works of art with Valpolicella, the renowned hills between Verona and Lake Garda where important red wine productions such as Amarone, Recioto and Ripasso have given a great economic relevance to this area. The daily trip begins with a visit to the city of Verona where centuries of history left their artistic mark in a clear and relevant way: Roman and medieval artifacts are the protagonists in the city of the Scaliger family, the Lords of Verona in the past centuries.
The Abbey of San Zeno, Castelvecchio and the Arena are just some of the countless beauties of the city.
Our drivers will make you discover the most fascinating corners, like Castel San Pietro, where you can enjoy Verona from above. At the end of the city tour you will have free time to walk around the old town and complete your visit by seeing the ancient squares and the famous balcony of Romeo and Juliet. There you can also book an official tour guide of Verona that will lead you to visit the historic center.
The tour continues in Valpolicella, a rich and generous land and an example of how history, wine products and the work of man can create something really unique. This part of the tour includes (optional) lunch at a local restaurant on the hills, where you can taste local dishes and wines in an attractive context; the last part of the excursion includes a visit to a winery (cost € 25 per person) including wine tasting: here you will learn so much about its important food and wine productions.
