Fabio really knows this city and you can tell. His tour was really interesting and informative and really enlightening; you realise you're somewhere steeped in history and that Verona has had many lives in the past. There is so much in plain sight that you miss, until you are taught where to look. Fabio also gave me a few local tips as to where to eat, get good views of the city, and was good company. An enjoyable part of my trip I would recommend to anyone.

The tour was a wonderful experience. Fabio was excellent! He was friendly, knowledgeable and had a great way of engaging both adults and children. It was interesting for everyone. We walked through the city's iconic sites and learned about Verona's history, culture and architecture. I highly recommend this tour especially if you are visiting for a short time and want to see it all...

I had the privilege of meeting Fabio in Verona for the hidden gems walking tour this last Saturday. He is the most passionate, knowledgeable, and attentive guide making my experience in Verona uniquely precious. It has been my favorite tour, and enriched my brain and heart in ways never done before. Taking this tour taught me to appreciate art and history in a completely different way from what I had been previously, and gave me a passionate and romantic view of Verona in its timeless essence (in it’s Plazzas, building styles, recycled historic materials, sculptures, and variations in artistic style). From the first moment the ecstatic passion emanating from Fabio became contagious, making my experience even more joyful, motivated, and pleasurable. You will also receive extremely valuable information regarding great restaurants, views, extra tips and alleys to cross, and things to keep in mind to connect with Verona’s true emotion and history.
