You will start your day with a private guided tour in Verona, where your chauffeur will take you after your hotel pickup. Verona will fascinate you with its incomparable flair and you will revel in its art, architecture, opera, and literary heritage. This is a journey across more than 2,000 years, from the foundation of the town right up to the present day. Verona is also the setting for Romeo and Juliet and you will be able to appreciate the atmosphere that Shakespeare conjured in one of his most popular plays.
Verona’s cultural history is closely tied to its gastronomy and we invite you to try the cuisine of the “valley of many cellars” in a beautiful restaurant surrounded by vineyards. Here you will taste the best local ingredients deliciously combined into mouth-watering dishes over three courses.

During your private guided tour of the winery you will learn from the local expert about the unique method of making this precious red wine.
The name Amarone derives from the Italian word ‘amaro’, which means ‘bitter’. You will taste several kinds of Amarone and learn to recognise it by its slightly spicy bitterness, which is reminiscent of roasted almonds. At the same time, it is so fine and warm that it will capture your heart with the first sip.From the wine tasting your chauffeur will drive you back to the hotel.
