We had a wonderful afternoon with our guide Maria Pia and learned a lot about the history of Verona and of course Rome and Juliet. All of our questions were answered competently and the stories were told with so much passion that we completely forgot to take photos. But our guide also had that under control and repeatedly offered to take photos of us when we were in a beautiful place steeped in history. It was a pleasure to walk through the city with her and see the many great places. We warmly recommend the tour as well as our guide and hope to have the opportunity to tour with her again soon

Our tour guide Mauro was absolutely incredible! He was so knowledgeable and passionate about the beautiful city of Verona. It was the highlight of our vacation this year! We highly recommend this tour and Mauro to anyone looking for a tour in Verona.

Ideal for touring the essential monuments of the historic center and discovering certain curiosities (ruins on the lower ground floor of the store of a major clothing brand.

Great Tour for the true story and places of Romeo and Juliet. Verona is a beautiful city
