What people are saying about Piazza delle Erbe

I couldn't really imagine it, but I have to say, I'm really excited about "getyourguide", I did the Romeo and Juliet tour and I was taken to streets that I wouldn't have found and it was very informative. Will definitely use getyourguide again on my next vacation. Thanks! The only thing that bothered me a bit or I would have liked more information was about the story of Romeo and Juliet. But otherwise TOP! LG Katja

We really liked the audio guide. Easy and good. Above all, you can do it independently at your own pace and also pause. Wonderful. We also really liked the speaker (sympathetic and funny).

Maria is an excellent guide. At all times we feel inside the history of Verona and its lovers. Very close and entertaining. An experience that is worth it. Very thankful.

This tour should be done first. You can see great corners of Verona that you might never have seen. You can also find small, typically Italian restaurants along the way.

Great tour also to the insiders of the city. Was fun!
