Only 1h and 10 Minutes by train from Venice to Verona: a comfortable and easy way to discover the city of Romeo & Juliet
Are you staying in Venice and wish to visit Verona as a temporary local?
Travel smart and use the train! Many people avoid it and think that travelling through Italy by train is a mess. . This is dead wrong and - expensive.
From Venezia S. Lucia Station (in Venice downtown located in front of the Gran Canal) to Verona Porta Nuova Station, the journey is short (1h 10 Minutes) and the landscape from the train windows is a joy for the eyes.
I meet you in Verona (outside the station)and we start a
3 hours walking tour of the city including all the must-sees and some unusual sights. We enter the Roman Arena to see where gladiators met their destinies.
At the end, you are free to browse the city on your own for a couple of hours (or more)before training back to Venice.
As a general rule, reservations are required for all Intercity trains and the high-speed trains (called FRECCE in Italian)
Please, check out here(in English) :http://www. trenitalia. com/tcom-en
You can easily reserve and pay on-line.
10 minutes walk from Verona Porta Nuova station to Verona downtown.
Piazza Brà with the " Liston", Roman Arena (interior) , Juliet's house, Piazza Erbe, Piazza Signori, Arche Scaligere, Romeo's house, a walk alongside the Adige River, Porta Borsari Castelvecchio, Piazza Brà.
Please note that the duration of this day tour (8 hours) has been calculated as follows:
- journey by train from and to Venice 2h and 20 Minutes
- 3 hours guided tour with me

This means that I will only be with you during the 3 hours city tour of Verona.

Wonderful Charming City! Lorella was incredible. She did not rush us and gave us an unforgettable experience in Verona. We will definitely be back. I wish we had more time in Verona to see the opera. Lorella was very knowledgeable and spent time explaining the sights. Thank you!
