Description

Verona: a splendid city of art, surrounded by traces of ancient history and the mythical dimension bestowed upon it by the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Situated in Piazza Bra', Verona’s Amphitheatre was built in the 1st century A.D. It is the third largest amphitheater in Italy, after the Colosseum and the amphitheater in Capua. We’ll leave for our tour from Polesella and begin with a panoramic visit of the city by coach, entering through the Porta Palio. We’ll see the beautiful Castelvecchio, the Arco dei Gavi, and the Porta Borsari. The Porta Nuova offers a wonderful view of the towers, hills and mountains in the background. From here, we’ll set off on foot with our guide to Juliet’s House (Casa di Giulietta) to see the balcony where she stood when Romeo declared his love. We'll then walk to the arena for a quick visit. Enjoy some free time to explore the city on your own before we meet up again for dinner in the city and then head to an evening at the opera in the arena. At the end of the evening, we’ll return on board the ship in Polesella.
