Monica was absolutely outstanding. she was truley captivating when explaining through all of the interesting facts and history. There were so many things we would have missed or not understood had we not been on this tour.. highly recommend to anyone wanting to maximise their experience in the beautiful verona. The food included in the tour was also fantastic. well worth the money all round.

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.
