Would highly recommend the Food & Wine Tour of Verona, Our Guide (Deanna or Diana - i hope that's spelt correctly) was amazing, very funny. We got lots of history of Verona mixed with jokes. It was lovely to taste local wines and smaller locally owned restaurants. It was a small group of 8 who all got along and thoroughly enjoyed the day.

4 of joined this tour last month in Verona and it was wonderful. Our guide Jana (sp) was wonderful - really engaging and fun. The food was varied, terrific and plentiful - rice pastries with coffee, bar hors - d'oeuvres with wine, incredible fresh pasta, sandwiches, fresh cheese and more wine and of course gelato. We learned a lot about the history and role of certain food in Verona. Highly recommend this tour. One of the best we've done and we do a lot of food tours.

My husband and I booked the food and wine tour as part of our honeymoon and we were not disappointed! We were met by the lovely Isabella and we were the only 2 people on the tour, she made it so personal for us and she was a wonderful guide! We started off our experience at a local cafe, had a coffee and traditional Italian pastry right outside the arena. We then went on to a local Osteria where we drank a lovely glass of white wine and shared some tapas which was fab! Isabella then took us to a pasta place where we chose 4 types of handmade tortellini, they were all delicious! Following on from that, we were taken to a wine shop where we met Franco and he let us try 4 different wines, along with bread/salami and local cheese. We finished our tour at a gelateria and tried 2 flavours of ice cream. It was an incredible experience and we would recommend to anyone visiting Verona! Rachel and Matt - England
