If you don't like organized tours and prefer the do-it-yourself option but still want to save the hassle of planning where to go and what to see in Verona you can choose one of the four walking itineraries suggested by Verona City Council. They are suitable to all levels and include all the cultural highlights of the city. The average lenght of each itinerary is 3 kilometres, with the shortest being 2,5 and the longest 3,6. The time needed to complete an itinerary varies between 3 and 4 hours... but it can be expanded to a full day if you plan many stops, coffee breaks, shopping and so on. Well, take your time: you're on holiday!

If you just want to relax and have a walk there is a place that offers you everything you need. The walkway between Bardolino and Garda is one of the best of the lake. It is called Rivalunga that translated means "long side".
