    INCLUDED EXCURSIONS


    Bolzano Christmas market stall
    Full Day: Merano and Bolzano Christmas Markets

    These two Christmas markets are second to none, and we’ll visit both on our holiday. The Merano Christmas Market will be our first port of call and will offer us the chance to explore the entire market to our heart’s content.

    The Merano Christmas Market comes complete with amazing decorations that feature bright lights and fully decorated Christmas trees, and we’ll be able to buy all sorts of treats while we’re there. With local delicacies and hand-crafted gifts to choose from, this Christmas market is sure to astound us.

    As if this weren’t enough though, we’ll also visit the Bolzano Christmas Market, which is located in Bolzano city centre just a short distance from Merano. This Christmas market is just as impressive, and comes with Christmas trees wrapped in shimmering lights, as well as garlands and wreaths on all of the wooden huts.

    With over 70 wooden huts selling all manner of Christmas-themed goods and handcrafted wares, as well as many delicious cakes, delicacies and foods we’ll be able to enjoy there and then, the Trento Christmas Market is absolutely fantastic.

    Located on the Piazza Fiera and Piazza Cesare Battisti, the market is one of the city’s most popular winter events.

    OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS


    Verona
    Full Day: Verona
    Verona is one of Italy’s most romantic cities, thanks to the fact that Shakespeare chose this city to set his romantic tragedy Romeo and Juliet. While the couple were purely fictional, there are many attractions which claim by local legend to have once set the scene for Romeo and Juliet. For example, there’s Juliet’s House, where we’ll find the balcony Romeo is said to have serenaded his love, as well as the Basilica di San Zeno where the two were supposedly married in secret. There’s also Juliet’s tomb, which is said to be located within San Francesco al Corso church. 

    Aside from this, there are many other attractions to enjoy in Verona, such as the Piazza delle Erbe, which was once the site of the Roman Forum in the city, and Lamberti Tower. There’s a Roman Theatre and Archaeological Museum to enjoy as well, and the impressive Verona Cathedral.
