After breakfast, we have an included excursion to the second largest city in the Veneto region, Verona. Why not make the most of your time here by joining our optional walking tour? Verona is a beautiful city and famed as the setting for Shakespeare's romantic tragedy ‘Romeo and Juliet’. The many charms of the city will be brought to life as you walk through its streets accompanied by a local guide. Admire the 1st century Arena, home to the prestigious Verona Opera Festival, which dominates the main square (entrance not included). Verona boasts an abundance of fine palaces, churches and monuments, which adorn its alleyways and squares. Our informative guide will reveal many of the fascinating stories behind the history of the buildings and personalities that will allow you to appreciate to the full the charming nature of this fine old historic town. You will have free time during the afternoon to explore at leisure the many historic buildings, browse amongst the shops or take a coffee break in one of the many cafés in Piazza Bra overlooking the Arena.

Today, why not join our wonderful optional excursion to the unique city of Venice, the largest city in the Veneto area. Venice is one of the most interesting cities in the world. It mixes Byzantine and Renaissance architecture throughout the 118 islands, and the magnificent buildings, surrounded by bridges and canals, are a sign of the city's former wealth. It has remained virtually the same for 600 years, which adds to its fascinating character and retains its romantic charm. Venice is the world’s only pedestrian city, which makes it easy to explore on foot.
Be sure to see some of the famous sights such as the Doge’s Palace, the symbolic seat of Venetian power and the enclosed Bridge of Sighs. The bridge passes over the Rio di Palazzo and connects the New Prison to the interrogation rooms in the Doge’s Palace. The bridges name comes from the suggestion that prisoners would sigh at their final view of Venice before being taken down to their cells. A local legend says that lovers will be granted eternal love and bliss if they kiss on a gondola at sunset under the Bridge of Sighs! A visit to St. Mark’s Square, the principle public square of Venice, is also a must. It is dominated at it’s eastern end by the magnificent St. Mark’s Basilica, a superb example of the Romanesque-Byzantine style. It was built in the 10th century to house the body of the St. Mark the Evangelist. A ride on a gondola, with your expert gondolier steering you through the busy waterways of Venice is a unique and exciting way to explore the city (at own cost), or you may decide to just sit back and relax at Harry’s Bar with one of their famous Bellini cocktails.
