Verona is a bustling centre, its heart dominated by a mammoth, remarkably well-preserved 1st-century amphitheatre, the venue for the city’s annual summer opera festival. Add to that countless churches, architecturally fascinating bridges over the Adige, regional wine and food from the Veneto hinterland and impressive art, and Verona shapes up as one of northern Italy’s most attractive cities.
Travel from London to Verona aboard the luxurious Venice Simplon-Orient-Express train before spending the next few days exploring the city of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers. With a private guided tour of the highlights of Verona, plus opera or theatre tickets to the Roman amphitheatre ‘Arena Di Verona’, this 4-day trip is the ultimate Veneto escape.
