What people are saying about Piazza Bra

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

Our guide was very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the city. For my sister and I this was an ideal way to explore the city at the start of our trip, to get a feel for it and to see which sights we wanted to explore more. The route itself was very bikefriendly and was clearly planned for that reason.

Our guide Benedicte took us around the old town letting us know more about the history as well as the food and drink culture. Her English is excellent. We appreciated her a lot!

We were super satisfied with our city tour. Very competent and a huge amount of specialist knowledge. Finally, there were a few good tips. Gladly again. Many thanks to Manuela.

Knowledgeable, covered loads of ground and history. Friendly guide.
