Enjoy a day visiting the city of Verona and the Valpolicella wine region.

An optional lunch at our selected restaurant located in the Valpolicella will enhance the overall experience of this beautiful part of the Veneto Region. Time permitting we will also include a stop at an enchanting small village perched on a top of an hill from where on clear days you can enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding scenery and Lake Garda.

On a 2.5 hrs private walking tour of Verona, you'll quickly understand that this city is much more than the famous Roman amphitheatre and the ill-fated love affair of Romeo and Juliet. Starting with the Romans conquering Verona, and ending with its contemporary history, the different ages of the city are visible through all the various monuments scattered around its historical centre. After a fascinating walking tour, your Venice day tour itinerary continue with a drive up into the nearby hills to explore the delightful countryside of the Valpolicella wine region.

We'll then visit a celebrated wine estate in the Valpolicella wine region. For an in-depth tour of the winery to thoroughly understand the unique methods used to produce the famous Amarone red wine, will be followed by a full wine tasting of the most representative wines produced by the estate, and including the Amarone Classico and Ripasso to name just a few.

A selection of small appetizers will also be included to enhance the flavour of the wines tasted. You'll also have the chance to taste some of the local olive oil produced in theLake Garda area. After completing the wine tasting your Venice Day Tours itinerary concludes as we make our way back to Venice.

Your English speaking guide will come and meet you in Piazzale Roma, Venice at the entrance to hotel Santa Chiara located on the lagoon side at the above specified time. Your driver will be holding a sign with your name written on it. We recommend to take vaporetto ( Water-bus ) n° 2 from the nearest stop to your hotel in Venice

We really enjoyed our Private Hill Towns of the Veneto Tour with Giovanni. Weather wasn't the best with quite a bit of rain, but all of the stops were terrific - winery for Prosecco tasting, Asolo, Bassano del Grappa, Marostica and the Villa Emo. Lunch in Asolo was excellent. Thank you to Giovanni and Avventure Bellissime for a great full day tour!

Private Hill Towns of Veneto, 26th June, 2011
Just wanted to provide some feedback on our tour experience last week. We had a great time! Our driver/tour guide Giovanni was fantastic! The car was clean, the destinations superb. Giavanni was very knowledgeable and able to provide invaluable insight to our stops. He's also a safe driver. Thanksagain we had a great time, probably the best tour we took during our stay!

After a long day and night of travel we are back home following a wonderful vacation. I wanted to take the time on behalf of the entire group to thank you, and our tour guides, for making this a great experience. In Venice, Davide was informative and although his apprentice added little as he was apparently "learning the ropes" the team worked out well for us for our first tour. The Hillside towns of Venice were picturesque and we all enjoyed the sights - the grappa - not so much!
In Rome - WOW! Francesca was phenomenal. Not only was she knowledgeable but very passionate for her home town. The city is obviously full of history and Francesca could go on forever about its past. She was very interesting. Lunch was another great experience. She took us to a small "deli" for lack of a better term for a traditional Italian lunch with meats and cheeses and wines in a cozy wine cellar. A real treat for all of us - just what we were looking for. We all agreed that Rome, and Francesca, was the highlight of our vacation. Thank you so much as everything went off smoothly and from what we heard we received a better tour and much more personal tour than those on the cruise excursions. I would recommend your services to anyone.

Hi Monica...just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed our guide, Davida (spelling?). He was terrific and we had a wonderful time. Please let everyone at the company know that we're very pleased with the tour yesterday and are looking forward to our tours of Venice next week.
The guide yesterday did a wonderful job of representing your company; you should be very proud of him.
All the best,

Private Customized Palladio Day Tours - March, 2009
Our two days in the Veneto were extremely stimulating and enjoyable. Enrico, our driver the second day, was competent, flexible, and obliging. Andrea, our driver the first day, could not have been better--an excellent, reliable driver who is also appealingly thoughtful, bright, interesting.
As for Wilma, it would be difficult to praise her highly enough. We think she's wonderful in every way--remarkably learned and intelligent, brilliantly insightful, spell-bindlingly dramatic and lucid in her presentation, both focused and wide-ranging, a delightful conversationalist--tactful, sympathetic, altogether excellent company!
William and I both learned a very great deal, and delighted in the experience.

Hill Towns of Veneto, 27th September, 2007
I just wanted to comment on a recent tour taken in Italy (September 27th), as I was extremely pleased with both the tour and especially, the guide. She was very knowledgeable and explained the areas we visited in detail without making it boring. As I made the reservation on line, via research on the internet, I had no idea what to expect. It was not through recommendation that I chose your company and this particular tour, so I was a bit hesitant with what might be facing us, but instead I was most pleased with the results. I would highly recommend both your company and this tour guide to anyone wishing to have a wonderful day outside of Venice while visiting.

Palladio Villa Toyr, May 13, 2007
Just wanted to let you know that we were absolutely thrilled with our tour and particularly with our guide, Rita. My husband and I have had experience with many guides, and few have been as relaxed, informative and easy to be with as Rita. Our day with her was the highlight of our entire two weeks in Italy, and we are planning another trip to the Veneto next year and will definitely be asking for her

Private Hill Towns of Veneto
We were a group of seven who toured the Veneto with your guide on 22/03/2007. She was terrific, she was knowledgeable, friendly, professional and helpfull. We laughed and learned and enjoyed our time experiencing the region and sharing the sites, sounds and tastes of the area around Venice. We had several guides during our visit to Italy, but yours was the best.

Palladio Villa Tour
We totally enjoyed and appreciated the private tour of the Hill Towns of the Veneto that myt group took while staying in Mira, on the 24th of May. Claudia was our guide and we found her to be PERFECT in every way. She was always smiling, always enthusiastic and very knowledgeable -- the perfect characteristics for a guide. The tour locations were exactly what I wanted to see and my guests enjoyed them as well. The day went very well, in spite of traffic challenges at every turn. And the choice of the pizza restaurant in Asolo was fabulous. Not every spot has great pizza - made quickly and perfectly, and this place had it all.

Ravenna Day Tour
Just to let you know that our recent private tour to Ravenna which you booked for us was very successful. Our driver, Miriam, was lovely and well as being a fine driver. Our local guide was very good and the restaurant you suggested had local color. I was a little afraid of booking over the internet, but you seemed quite organized so I hoped for the best. You came through with everything as promised and having two lovely Italian women with us made our visit personal and fun. Thanks so much. I will give your brochure to our travel in N.Y., Pro Travel. I am always sorry to leave Italy, and though it was broiling when we left, it is 97 in N.Y. today.Wishing you continued success.

Palladio & Dolomites Day Tours
I have been home now for a few weeks recuperating from jet lag and something I caught in Switzerland. Our whole trip was s wonderful, but our stay in Venice was the highlight. Your organization helped to make it so. Our Palladian and Dolomite tours were exceptional. Miriam and Tommaso couldn’t have been more knowledgeable or interesting tour guides. My son Owen and Tommaso hit it off immediately when they both found out they both like skiing, wine and the Oakland Raiders. You are very fortunate in having them with your company. We so enjoyed them and their driving was excellent. Thank you again for making Venice so memorable.
