Day trips and overnight trips in Italy. Come see the country from a local’s perspective.

from venice to verona

This trip offers a variation on the usual transportation from Venice to Verona. The day begins with pick-up at the train station in Conegliano (half-hour 10 euro train ride form Venice) around 10am or shortly after depending on the train schedule . Conegliano is the home of prosecco so the day will begin with a visit to a small producer and followed by lunch and continuing towards Verona where the day will end with visiting a producer in the Verona area while ending the wine tasting with Amarone. Lunch in a local trattoria would be included along with the winery visits and tastings.

A variation of this day trip for die-hard culinary enthusiasts could include a small detour to Altissima Vicenza for lunch at what may well be my favourite restaurant in Italy, Cascin Del Gamba. The surcharge for this would be 50 euro per person. The day would end with drop off near the centre of Verona or perhaps a gelato before heading to your hotel in Verona.

day trips from verona

These are easy trips for visitors staying in Verona wishing to explore the wonderful surrounding wine areas of Verona. The guide is a Sommelier of the highest level and is very familiar with the areas and their wines. These depart from a meeting place in Verona at 9:30am or 10am and include visits to two or three wineries and an excellent lunch. The possible areas to visit depending on the preference of the clients are:

Lake Garda and Bardolino
Soave and Monteforte
Tregnano
Valpolicella

It would not be possible to visit and taste the wines of all of the above areas in one or two days. However, a real enthusiast could do three day trips from Verona to get the full wine experience of the area. The rate for these Day Tours is 350 euro for the first person, 150 for additional persons in the same group, including lunch and all wine tasting.

 

overnight from verona

Overnight trips from Verona offer the opportunity to visit the areas offered for the day trips but with the added charm of being able to sleep in a beautiful villa amongst the vineyards and start the day with a light breakfast and full days of visiting wine-producing areas. Of course, there are always exceptional restaurant selections as well for lunch. There is also the possibility for a little relaxation time morning or afternoon by the pool in certain places upon request. The overnight trips would include the winery visits, two lunches, dinner and lodging. These trips are perfect for singles or couples. 

The rates for overnight trips would be 550 euro per day for the first person and 350 for additional  person based on double occupancy, including all meals, transportation and wine tasting. Including Cascin Del Gamba would be an additional charge of 70 per person.
