The guided city walking tour was brilliant. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, kind, friendly and helpful. We were shown all the best sites and given so much information on the history of Verona- plus we were given tips and advice on the must- sees and how to access them. The tour started on time and was a lovely experience with a calm and happy vibe. Would highly recommend.

Fabio was an informative and entertaining guide. He highlighted historical details as we walked along. The route was well planned and we ended up back at the arena after a good loop. I highly recommend fitting this into your itinerary even if you only one day to explore Verona! Ciao
