Meet up with your English- and German-speaking official guide in the center of the city and get ready to discover the delights of this northern Italian city.

Really enjoyable trip. Verona is beautiful and Alex the guide was really friendly and welcoming. Trip was perhaps an hour too long for me but the heatwave in Verona probably contributed to me feeling this way! Highly recommend this trip, well worth it.

Leonardo is a gifted storyteller and also shows beautiful sides of Verona that lie away from the hustle and bustle of tourism. Absolutely recommendable for a short trip
