What people are saying about Ponte Pietra

The guide Fabio made the tour very engaging and interesting. So that this was quite entertaining for our ten-year-old son. You can feel his heart and soul, that he enjoys this work and that he has studied the history of Verona in depth. It was the best city tour we got in Italy. And in German, the selection isn't that huge... For the fact that we were 10 participants, I felt the price was above the pain threshold, but in this case there was a decent return service.

Bernadette, our tour guide, was informative, fun and very knowledgeable. It was a real privilege to be shown Verona by a local person. The cycling wasn’t arduous so worked well.

Tour is great, top notch, really highly recommended. Plenty of information and lots of tips away from the route

Very entertaining and interesting tour, with many hidden sights.

Very good. Tour guide friendly and gives a feel of the city.
