What People Are Saying About Verona
Got the 48 hour card and was able to see most of the sights on the card within that time.
Our tour guide was very professional and adjusted the tour schedule to suit our interests as the day progressed.
While the tour was pleasant, I felt that it really wasn't worth the price. With some historical background from Wikipea and a city map, I could have explored at my leisure and enjoyed it more.
We rode both lines to get an overview of the city and then got of at the places we were most interested in to walk around.
My wife and I were on holiday in Verona when we booked this your. We are both very passionate about good wine and we knew about the Valpolicella region, just hadn't had the chance to visit it yet. I must say I was quite surprised by how perfect everything was during this tour. Silvia from Cantine Salvaterra was very preparared, the showed us the beautiful vineyards and explained everything about their wines. The guided tasting was amazing, this is how every wine should taste! Also the local products we had the chance to taste together with the wines (like the "grana padano", delicious pieces of salami and the "grissini") were really good. We'd definitely book another activity with Faberest on our next trip to Italy, their team is great! Well done
