In the center of Verona, met up with your knowledgeable local guide and get ready to discover the delights of this northern Italian city. Explore the streets of Verona's historic center, taking in the churches and palaces that have helped make this town a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

After some meandering past Castelvecchio, Scaligero Bridge, and Bra Square and learning about the history of the town, make your way over to see the gem of Verona: the ancient Roman arena. Built in AD 30, the arena is very well preserved for being 2,000 years old. Learn about the history of the arena, about how it once could hold up to 30,000 people and the actions that have taken place over the years to keep it so well preserved.

Hear about how the arena not only hosts concerts from international superstars but it's also home of the very popular Verona Arena Festival, a summertime opera celebration that draws classical music lovers from all over the world.

After taking some photos of the arena, head to Juliet's House (La Casa di Giulietta), the structure that inspired Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet.'

Our guide was Izabella, who was very passionate about Verona and this came across really well during the tour. She was very thorough in relating the history of the city and had a good sense of humour. Would thoroughly recommend this tour as a way of finding out as much as possible about Verona in the space of two hours!

I would recommend this walking tour to anyone who wants to cover most of the highlights of Verona in a couple of hours.

She had great communication skills and was very helpful with regards to information requests outside of the scope of the tour.

Two treasures: Verona and Irene (our guide)
Michael_O
, Oct 2019
Verona is a "must see," if you're not just trying to hit all the major Italian cities: Rome, Naples, Florence and Venice. It's town for walking, with historic churches, towers, arenas & theaters, gardens and fountains, etc. around every corner. Irene, our charming guide, did not just show us the normal touch points, she took us "shopping" into the basement of a clothing store to see parts of a Roman villa next to men's underwear, to an upscale restaurant in Piazza Erbe to visit parts of a Roman temple under their wine cellar. She regaled us with stories of Verona's extensive past and shattered some of the myths of Shakespeare's version of "Romeo and Juliet." Two hours worth more than the price.

Dear guest, we are really glad that you enjoyed our walking tour so much!! So, what should I add? Come back soon for some more Italian food! We will be waiting for you!

We had a lovely and very knowledgeable guide called Priscilla. She took us to the main places of interest and gave us lots of insight into the long history of Verona. Priscilla is a local and her love of her city came across. It was paced just right in terms of walking speed and we would highly recommend this tour.

Irena was our tour guide and she was charming, a local and loved Verona, herself, and it showed. This is a wonderful tour to get an overview of Verona so you can see where you want to explore on your own. Irena was informative and I learned a lot, especially about the Juliette Balcony! I highly recommend this tour. There is a lot more to Verona than I realized and you get that on this tour. It was nicely paced.

, Nov 2017
This tour covers a significant portion of the city, but one primarily sees sites from the outside. For example, the tour does not include entrance to the Verona Arena, only a brief commentary from outside. However, the guide did provide serviceable, if not scholarly, commentary on the sites. The walk is lengthy but it includes a number of pauses so it is not too taxing .

This tour was a lot of money and our tour guide lacked flare which made it difficult to concentrate. It was also expensive, there were no visits included in the price, we stood outside places. It would have been also nice if our guide gave us a toilet stop or drink stop too. Verona is beautiful.

Wolfe was a gracious and charming guide with lots of local knowledge. Enjoyed the tour, but there was a lot of walking through some dense crowds. Not a relaxing tour. But worth the time.
