Entertaining, funny, enjoyable, educational. Michela was an amazing host. Beautiful Appartment in the heart of Verona. Just yards from the Arena. We were made to feel special and enjoyed unlimited food. Cheeses, meats, breads and a choice of wine to start. Was so much fun making gnocchi with her. Learned all about her ways. She FaceTimed our family as we cooked to chat. Moved on to meatballs Beautiful deserts and limoncello to finish. Was a really chilled evening taken at our own pace. Lovely gift on our departure too. Shared phone numbers and email addresses and were given a menu, recipes of what we ate. A must do experience if you have 2-3 nights in Verona

The tour was very casual and our tour guide was amazing! She was so knowledgeable and such a sweet person!! I think we got out what we paid for with her company!! We had every meal besides dinner at cute authentic restaurants and a wine tasting at this small enoteca, which had amazing wine. Once again, the guy there was super knowledgeable as well! We saw all the landmarks of Verona and if it was summer, we would’ve definitely caught an opera in the arena! So cool & such great history!

Mauro was an excellent guide. Our group tour ended up being a ‘private’ one as no one else happened to be booked on it that day (it was a rainy February day). Mauro spoke extremely good English and was very knowledgeable on the history of Verona including many interesting little anecdotes. A very enjoyable & informative 3 hours!

Great! A well mapped out and thorough tour of all the sights in Verona. Easy to follow and historically informative. Unfortunately the timings listed for the amphitheater weren’t accurate so we weren’t able to go inside.

Incredible city full of history and culture Good food with restaurants at good prices and very cozy The city is very clean and everyone was very attentive to me
