Overall rating

based on 4,358 reviews

Perfect for a day in Verona. The only thing to add is that there should be a tourist office at the train station, so you can pick up the card there.

It is definitely worth buying such a card if you will be traveling by bus and also want to see a lot of the city, it is really worth it!

Although the bus was 15 minutes late arriving everything else made us forget that. A lovely driver and both guides

Tour was very interesting and guide was cery knowledgeable

The perfect tour for an authentic Verona experience!
