Head over to Piazza Bra in the center of Verona to meet 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.

Our guide took us on a journey that combined humour with historical fact and a little bit of romantic fiction, thrown in for good measure.

She offered interesting archaeological evidence to prove and disprove many stories that have been passed down throughout the ages.

We certainly got to discover a side of the city we would never have found using only a guide-book.

Did you know for instance, the famous balcony where according to Shakespeare Juliet would lament the return of Romeo, is possibly a carved tomb! A stone sarcophagus modified and fitted to the window long after the play was written. It turns out that one of historys most recognisable symbols of eternal love, might be little more than an empty grave but a must see nonetheless!

Francesca was our guide, it was just a group of 3. It was the perfect way to walk around Verona and learn about the amazing sites. Verona is such a beautiful city, it is so worth exploring with a guide. We ended the tour in a nice part of town by the river, would have not been able to get there by myself! Highly recommended.
