Fabio Massimo our guide today told us a lot about the history of Verona and accompanied us where we hadn't seen yet ... we thank him so much and recommend him for those who want to get to know that Verona that is not always noticeable ... wear comfortable shoes ....

This tour is excellent, especially if you don't have a lot of time in Verona. Fabio is a wonderful guide and story teller who clearly loves what he's doing. If you only have time for one tour and you love a bit of history, this is the tour to be doing.

100% recommendation! Fabio loves this city and that's what makes this tour so unique. It shows you a completely different perspective of this beautiful city and how important it is sometimes to take a closer look. Fabio speaks German very well and knows every little detail. Without this tour I would certainly not have perceived Verona as I do now. Grace mille Fabio!
