In the center of Verona, met up with your knowledgeable local guide and get ready to discover the delights of this northern Italian city. Explore the streets of Verona's historical center, taking in the churches and palaces that have helped make this town a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site.
After some meandering past Castelvecchio, Scaligero Bridge, and Bra Square and learning about the history of the town, make your way over to see the gem of Verona: the ancient Roman arena. Built in 30 AD, the arena is very well preserved for being 2,000 years old. Learn about the history of the arena, about how it once could hold up to 30,000 people and the actions that have taken place over the years to keep it so well preserved.
Hear about how the arena not only hosts concerts from international superstars but it's also home of the very popular Verona Arena Festival, a summertime opera celebration that draws classical music lovers from all over the world. After taking some photos of the arena, head to Juliet's House (La Casa di Giulietta), the structure that inspired Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet.'
We had a lovely and very knowledgeable guide called Priscilla. She took us to the main places of interest and gave us lots of insight into the long history of Verona. Priscilla is a local and her love of her city came across. It was paced just right in terms of walking speed and we would highly recommend this tour.
This was a perfect tour - just the right amount of time and our guide Priscilla was so knowledgeable and easy to understand. We felt we knew Verona much better after the tour and really enjoyed the morning.
Irena was our tour guide and she was charming, a local and loved Verona, herself, and it showed. This is a wonderful tour to get an overview of Verona so you can see where you want to explore on your own. Irena was informative and I learned a lot, especially about the Juliette Balcony! I highly recommend this tour. There is a lot more to Verona than I realized and you get that on this tour. It was nicely paced.
This tour covers a significant portion of the city, but one primarily sees sites from the outside. For example, the tour does not include entrance to the Verona Arena, only a brief commentary from outside. However, the guide did provide serviceable, if not scholarly, commentary on the sites. The walk is lengthy but it includes a number of pauses so it is not too taxing .
This tour was a lot of money and our tour guide lacked flare which made it difficult to concentrate.
It was also expensive, there were no visits included in the price, we stood outside places.
It would have been also nice if our guide gave us a toilet stop or drink stop too.
Verona is beautiful.
