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 !!!

Great! A well mapped out and thorough tour of all the sights in Verona. Easy to follow and historically informative. Unfortunately the timings listed for the amphitheater weren’t accurate so we weren’t able to go inside.

I loved the experience of getting to know the city without worrying about paying for tickets and transport tickets. Only with Veronacard, everything was included. Too bad the Arena was closed.

Incredible city full of history and culture Good food with restaurants at good prices and very cozy The city is very clean and everyone was very attentive to me

An Incredible experience, I 100% recommend getting the Verona Card.
