A day in Verona: private tour + transfer from Venice (or from main cruise terminal) and back to Venice
Why Verona? Do you know that it is just 1 hour and 10 minutes from Venice? It is among the most stunning products of centuries of Italian city-cultivating, adorned with the hothouse refinements of the Veneto's unique history. After Venice, Verona will give you a "sense" of the landscape and of the palette you have admired in the paintings of Paolo Veronese (yes, he was from Verona)in the Doges' Palace. Venice and Verona united in 1404 becoming the envy of Italy: paceful and prosperous.
Today Verona is even in better shape than it has been in centuries. It's economy is one of the great succes stories of post-war Italy. It is delightful: as red, elegant and precious as the rose bower in the medieval Roman de la Rose.
