Reaching the Arena di Verona from Venice



The most famous and most visited tourist destination in Italy’s Veneto region is definitely Venice, also known as La Serenissima and undisputed UNESCO World Heritage site.

The elegant floating city fascinates tourists from all over the world: there you’ll be able to wander through the narrow streets (calli) and squares of various sizes (campi and campielli) of the Lagoon, observing its wonders, such as the magnificent Saint Mark’s Square, the Bridge of Rialto, La Fenice theatre and the Bridge of Sighs, the last of which links the solemn Doge’s Palace with the New Prisons and is famous because it is connected with the escape of the famous adventurer Giacomo Casanova from prison. You can also let yourself be rocked by the Grand Canal, treating yourself to a trip on a waterbus or a gondola, to experience this immortal city’s uniqueness to the full.


To complete your trip under the banner of culture and art, you can’t miss a visit to the city of Verona, which has a historic bond with Venice, also revealed by the Lion of Saint Mark in Piazza delle Erbe. Lastly, you can conclude your tour of Verona by treating yourself to a unique unmissable night at the Opera Festival staged in the suggestive Arena di Verona.
