Our guide was excellent and he was very good in articulating every fact. He showed us alleys we would have never seen ourselves. My only suggestion is to include the option of amphitheatre in the ticket by starting the tour 30 min early. This will make it a very thorough tour of Verona.

An excellent tour with Monica. She was extremely knowledgeable about Verona, and we spent 3 hours walking to all the main points of interest, using the funicular and learning about the different periods of history in Verona. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting!

We really enjoy the tour the knowledge of Mauro is impressive. I super recommended this tour with Mauro… the focaccia and cold cuts and cheese delicious….

Our tour guide, Maurice, was fabulous. One of the best guides I have had. He made Verona come alive for me.

Verona card definitely worth it for a family of 6 with 4 adult children ranging from 18-25.
