Overview

Discover the best of Verona and Sirmione on a day trip from Bergamo. Take a walking tour of Verona, Shakespeare’s setting for his play 'Romeo and Juliet,' seeing the balcony associated with Juliet, and massive Roman Arena. Enjoy free time to stroll, shop, or have lunch (own expense), and continue to Sirmione, overlooking Lake Garda. Explore this medieval town independently, perhaps visiting its castle and Roman villa, before returning to Bergamo.
  • 10-hour Verona and Sirmione trip from Bergamo
  • View Verona’s top attractions on a guided walking tour
  • See Juliet’s Balcony at the house linked with Shakespeare’s 'Romeo and Juliet'
  • Admire the Roman Arena and shop, stroll, or have lunch (own expense)
  • Explore the town of Sirmione on the shores of Lake Garda
  • Visit Sirmione's 13th-century Castle or Roman villa ruins (both at own expense)
  • Includes round-trip coach transport from central Bergamo
Depart central Bergamo by air-conditioned coach, and journey east toward Verona, the setting for Shakespeare’s tragic Romeo and Juliet.

On arrival, enjoy a walking tour of the highlights hidden in the UNESCO-listed streets. See Juliet’s House, the 13th-century, balconied house associated with Shakespeare’s fictional heroine, gazing at what’s known as Juliet’s Balcony and imagining the two ill-fated lovers. Admire the Roman Arena, the massive 1st-century amphitheater in the old town, and learn how it’s still used for summer concerts.

After the tour, enjoy some free time, perhaps relaxing over lunch (own expense), going shopping, or viewing Verona’s Renaissance palaces, towers, and other Roman ruins.

Then, drive to Sirmione, a picturesque town on Lake Garda. The Romans made this area a vacation hotspot, and their legacy is still part of the town’s attraction.

Enjoy time to explore independently, ambling down the medieval streets or visiting Scaligera Castle (own expense) the 13th-century moated castle. Alternatively, visit Sirmione’s Roman Villa (own expense), the remains of a 1st-century holiday home nestled in olive groves. Stroll around the ruins and visit the museum to see the treasures found here, including mosaics and carvings.

Finally, return to Bergamo, where your tour ends at the starting point.

Good guides, but it was cloudy, very cold and there were too many people in Verona. We also could not go on the boat trip at Sirmione due to bad weather which was a disappointment. Wish we had more time in Sirmione
