This tour was excellent. Our guide Fabio was bright, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. He explained so many different aspects of the town and its history. The tour moved at a very comfortable pace and we were taken to some very unique and authentic parts of Verona. We saw stuff we would have never otherwise known about. A great start for a visit to Verona.

Fabio Massimo was our guide and we have such a good time with him, very knowledgeable and friendly without him we wouldn’t be able to see and understand why Verona is so precious, it is much more than Juliet and Romeo. If you really want to learn about Verona history and its hidden gems so this tour !!!

Fabio was one of THE best tour guides we have ever had. So knowledgeable, kind, and engaging. Some really interesting surprise stops and Verona has such a rich history. Would walk around with Fabio all day if we could! 5/5 would recommend to anyone visiting.
