My husband and I booked the food and wine tour as part of our honeymoon and we were not disappointed! We were met by the lovely Isabella and we were the only 2 people on the tour, she made it so personal for us and she was a wonderful guide! We started off our experience at a local cafe, had a coffee and traditional Italian pastry right outside the arena. We then went on to a local Osteria where we drank a lovely glass of white wine and shared some tapas which was fab! Isabella then took us to a pasta place where we chose 4 types of handmade tortellini, they were all delicious! Following on from that, we were taken to a wine shop where we met Franco and he let us try 4 different wines, along with bread/salami and local cheese. We finished our tour at a gelateria and tried 2 flavours of ice cream. It was an incredible experience and we would recommend to anyone visiting Verona! Rachel and Matt - England
