Full description

Embark on a 2.5-hour guided walking tour through the ancient streets of Verona. Visit historical landmarks dating from Roman, medieval, and Renaissance times and learn the history behind each turn from your expert guide. Start your guided walking adventure at the Piazza Bra, surrounded by the first medieval city wall, and see the Renaissance Palazzo Della Gran Guardia and Roman amphitheater.

Enjoy a short walk via Mazzini and arrive at the remains of the Roman city wall and gate, called "Porta Borsari." From the Adige river, admire the huge medieval Castelvecchio and its bridge, a reminder of this once-mighty military stronghold. Stop at the old Forum Romanum, transformed into a market square during medieval times. See the old "Corte Sgarzerie," where wool was carded, stamped, and sold. Continue to the Piazza delle Erbe, surrounded by the stunning baroque Maffei Palace and the painted facades of the Mazzanti's houses. Next, pass Juliet's house and admire it from the street. Arrive at Piazza dei Signori and marvel at the statue of Dante in the center. Behind the Della Scala palaces, see the well-preserved tombstones of the old lords of Verona and continue to see Romeo's house. At via Sottoriva, pass old porticoes and bustling local restaurants and head towards Bra Molinari. Visit the only Roman bridge left and enjoy the views of Verona's countryside. From the riverbank, you can see Mount Saint Peter, an Austrian fortress, and the remains of the Roman theater on top.

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.

Manuela is an excellent guide and extremely knowledgeable. Probably one of the most interesting and informative tours I have had the pleasure to join. Verona is of course a stunning city and one could spend days and days exploring alone but still not learn as much as we did in a few hours.

We took a number of guided tours in several cities during our recent trip to Italy and this walking tour of Verona was by far the best. We were a very small english-speaking tour group and our guide, Roberta, was terrific. She was extremely knowledgeable about the city and managed a running commentary as we walked, continuously pointing out various sculptures, frescos, and other architectural features with plenty of historical background. Her english was excellent and her delivery was very natural, presented in such a way that it didn't sound scripted.
