We continue the next leg of our 2023 Grand Tour starting in Verona, Italy, fabled home of Shakespeare’s tragic lovers, Romeo and Juliet. With Montagues and Capulets looming all around, we’ll explore Verona’s historic sites and wander through it countryside.
From Verona, we’ll head off into hills to the north, meandering amongst fields that hang above river valleys. We then drop into the Adige River valley and head towards the beautiful cities of Trento and Bolzano, gateways to the mighty Dolomites that rise to the east and west.
Mostly following broad river valleys, we reach the Alps, but turn to stay on its flank, heading east and rising steadily towards a low pass at Candido, just before the Austrian border. On our 7th day, we’ll drop into Lienz, Austria, having experienced geography, cities, villages, and people that tell the story of early Europeans’ love of a place that, at times certainly inhospitable, was clearly much too wondrous to ever leave.
Gather in Verona
Nomads staff will gather in Verona on the afternoon of May 27 at the fabulous Relais Empire hotel in the heart of Verona, just a stone’s throw from the balcony made famous by Juliet’s call to her tragic lover. Though this evening is not an official part of the trip, guests are welcome to join us; we’ve made arrangements just in case and, space permitting, a room may be available for you. Take in a show or museum, choose amongst the many gastronomic offerings, or just relax and prepare for the incredible journey ahead.
Tomorrow, we start this leg of our Grand Tour, pointed towards the Alps.
