Day 3

After breakfast travel to the romantic city of Verona, the setting of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet Stumble upon Piazza Brà, a large open space dominated by the imposing Roman Arena. Walk down marble streets to the heart of the town to Piazza Erbe, Verona's beautiful main square. We must, of course, witness Juliet's balcony from which Shakespeare's character reportedly uttered those famous anguished lines. There is so much to see in Verona so we spend the whole day exploring before returning to the hotel for our evening meal.
(please note there is an approx 20-minute walk into the town from the Coach Park or you can catch a park and ride bus at approx. 5 Euros extra.)

Day 4

After breakfast we enjoy a scenic coastal drive visiting the resort of Lazise, a pretty walled village with paved lakefront promenade. The 12th century Church of San Nicolo is known for its frescoes while the Sacliger Castle is also medieval but can be admired from the outside, being privately owned. We return to Riva del Garda for the rest of the afternoon at leisure. Tonight enjoy your 4 course Christmas Eve dinner with live music.
