If you are an art critic at the Sgarbi level, then you will have other ways to visit Verona, but if you are just people who want to know something about one of the wonderful Italian cities, this tour is for you. An excellent smattering of history from the Roman Empire to the Risorgimento, and then, off to see with your own eyes the vestiges of all these centuries. For the "do it yourself" tourist it is the top of satisfaction. Obviously, the words "wear comfortable shoes" are not redundant ...
