"Wine rejoices the heart of Man and Joy is the Mother of all Virtues"
 Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Verona & Lake Garda

We start off with a private transfer from Verona airport into the heart of the city.  To experience the true essence of this lovely city, we recommend that you stay in the centre of the city. We have a range of beautiful hotels and B&Bs to offer. That evening we will book a restaurant for you to enjoy. The next morning you will meet our guide and go on a walking tour with wine tasting. The afternoon is free so you can enjoy some shopping, enjoy an aperitif while people watching or have a rest. If you are organising your trip to Italy at the end of June, July. August and early September, it is opera time and we suggest that you go and see the opera as this is an amazing experience. We would recommend that you have dinner before the opera just to make sure that there is no tummy rumbling.

Romantic Upgrades:

  • Consider travelling to Verona on the Orient Express

  • A romantic evening enjoying a romantic aperitif with champagne and candles and of course your own waiter. All this will take place in Juliet’s courtyard

  • Upgrade of opera tickets

  • A tasting menu on one of the nights

The next day you will pick up your car or a private transfer can be arranged. You will now head to Lake Garda. You will be staying at a wonderful villa set high above with some of the most beautiful views in Italy and a restaurant where the food is simply delicious. Staying here will provide you with peace and tranquillity. You will stay here for 4 nights, with one of the days taking a private boat tour of the lake.

Romantic Upgrades:

  • An upgrade of your room to a suite with a lake view

  • A private one day tour of the lake with stops along the way

  • Wine tour where you get to meet local producers
