Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • On arrival in Verona, your private driver will meet you for the short drive to your hotel. You'll then have the rest of the day to relax after your flight or start exploring the city.

  • This morning, your private guide will meet you at your hotel for a three-hour walking tour of Verona, including a visit to Santa Anastasia Church, which contains a number of beautiful frescoes. In the afternoon, explore more of the city on your own. We recommend Juliet's House, or you could enjoy some of the region’ renowned Amarone wine.

  • Leave Verona and make your way by private vehicle north to the charming town of Madonna di Campiglio in the Dolomites, a scenic journey of around three hours. Arriving by mid-afternoon, you can enjoy the remainder of the day at leisure.

  • For an introduction to the area's remarkable natural beauty, enjoy a private hike in Val di Genova, known as ‘waterfalls valley’. You’ll travel by private vehicle to meet your guide before setting off along the banks of the Sarca River towards Nardis waterfalls and then on to the delightful hamlet of La Todesca.

  • Take a whole day to explore the natural beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage Site at your leisure — we can provide recommendations on hikes and other things to do in the Dolomites.

  • You'll set off with your private driver for the three-hour journey to Italy’s largest lake, Lake Garda. Once you’ve checked into your hotel in Sirmione — one of the most photographed places on the lake — you’ll have rest of the day to wander around the town at your leisure or simply relax by the hotel pool.

  • Enjoy a wine-tasting tour today. Setting off with your private driver, you’ll make your way to a small-scale winery run by the Zordan family. You’ll have a brief introduction to the vineyard and the five wines they produce before sitting down on the terrace for a tasting accompanied by local snacks.

  • You’ll have today free to explore Lake Garda. We recommend taking the ferry across to some of the nearby towns such as Garda town and Bardolino.

  • Meet with your guide this morning for a tour around Vittoriale degli Italiani (Shrine of Italian Victories), a complex that belonged to the poet Garbriele d’Annunzio. After your visit, head to Heller Gardens, an impressive botanical garden where you can admire a variety of flowers and plants from around the world.

  • Your driver will pick you up from your hotel for the journey back to Verona airport in time for your flight home.
