I am going on a cruise that starts in Venice but have a day to see things outside of Venice since we have done Venice in the past. Looking for train schedule and which stops I need to get on/off at as well as how to navitage throught Verona once I am there.
Well the train from Venice to Verona is pretty easy. Just 2 hours direct (the slow and cheap one 7€)
To get into the main centre it is a 15 min walk or a 2 min taxi ride from the train station.
Verona is pretty small and you can find most things by walking around and just following main crowds. almost 10 years ago
The train is by far your best option. Its really easy to get to in Venice - take the waterbus which will stop at the train station, or depending on where your cruise drops you, its a lovely walk from say St Marco Square along the back streets, over the Rialto and up to the train station.
Hope on a train and a couple of hours later, you are in Verona.
I would walk into the town as its a nice way to see it, and then get a taxi back to the train station. Its about a 15/20 minute stroll.
Verona has a nice centre with an amphitheatre, and then off from that are lots of lanes and little streets with great cafes, shopping and some restaurants. Of course, you will want to go to the (in)famous Juliet balcony which is signposted, and not too far away from it is the tourist office.
