Full description
Discover a perfect blend of culture and taste on the Venezia-Verona Amarone tour. An extraordinary experience mixing the unforgettable monuments and squares of the historic center of Verona where Juliet and Romeo's balcony welcomes thousands of tourists and the unique character of the wines from the Valpolicella area. The Amarone-Valpolicella tour offers the opportunity to visit vineyards located in the northwest of Verona in the classic Valpolicella area where sunny hills and very little towns called Borghi are the perfect settings for an exclusive tasting menu. The very special nature of the soil, the presence of indigenous grape varieties make Valpolicella Classico, Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso, Amarone and Recioto among the best red wines all over the world. The particular method of production, semi-drying the grapes,  found nowhere else in the world, is the reason why Amarone and Recioto are particularly preferred by wine lovers.

The wine tasting includes a visit to the famous winery Berlucchi where a new generation has inherited the pioneer spirit and qualities of the creator of Franciacorta, treasuring the lessons from the past, but gazing fearlessly towards the future. Vineyards covering over 500 hectares produce the great Franciacorta, a sparkling wine made by Metodo Classico. With DOCG status, produced from grapes grown within the boundaries of the territory of Franciacorta Berlucchi, family traditions create fine products of incomparable character and quality.

The tour will continue with a private mini walking visit of Verona. The numerous attractions of the historic center will immediately capture your intimate feelings in front of astonishing Piazza Bra, home of the famous Arena di Verona with its magic performing arts, Castelvecchio bridge, Juliet's House, Piazza dei Signori and Piazza delle Erbe the beating lover’s heart of this city, the Scaliger Tombs, and the Church of St Anastasia. Verona-Amarone-Franciacorta tour is undoubtedly a relaxing experience combining the joy coming from renowned worldwide wines and rhythm of people on foot as Verona is small enough to walk without the aid of car or public transport.

Excellent day spent in Verona and enjoying some great wine

Our tour was exactly what we wanted. We were staying in Venice and had been there before. This time we wanted to visit Verona and sample some good wine. We met our guide by the transportation center and had a short walk to his car. He pointed out local highlights in Veneto as we drove to Verona where we had a very nice tour. Following that we headed to a small winery and following a tour by the owner we sampled some of their excellent wines. Great day!

Unbelievable and amazing tour!

Riccardo was a fantastic guide with deep insight into all the places and things that we saw. My family and I enjoyed the tour with him immensely. Verona was captivatingly beautiful, and each of the wineries we visited were fascinating. The wine was delicious and served with delicious food. And to make it even better, the tour guides at the wineries were also nothing short of fantastic. Our driver was similarly great. Thanks for a great time!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Verona and the Amarone & Franciacorta wine regions out of Venice. Our guide Riccardo and driver Peter showed a sincere interest in making sure we had a great experience. They were both so friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. We're so glad we signed up for this tour and if we come back to the Veneto, we'll be sure to ask for Riccardo and Peter again.
