Day 2 - Sirmione and Verone

We take a boat to Sirmione (1 hour) which is an incredibly beautiful trip where you see a long arm stretching out from land, and Sirimione (the city) is wonderfully located at the end of this. This castle town is a nice little town with, among other things, an old church within the city walls and narrow, cozy pedestrian streets. It will be possible to have lunch served for a fee after arrival in Sirmione. After lunch we move on to Verona, the city perhaps best known for the love tragedy perpetuated by Shakespeare and deals with families: Romeos Montecchi - who supported the pope and Juliet's Capuleti - who supported the emperor. Included in the tour is a local English-speaking guide and the tour goes through Verona's historic center; here you see St Zeno Basilica, a famous arena where a poetry festival is held every year. Historic piazza such as "The Lord's Square" and the medieval castle as well as the Scaligers bridge. After the tour of Verona we return to the hotel and arrive for dinner.
