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

Our guide was very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the city. For my sister and I this was an ideal way to explore the city at the start of our trip, to get a feel for it and to see which sights we wanted to explore more. The route itself was very bikefriendly and was clearly planned for that reason.

My husband and I were not disappointed and would recommend the arena to anyone! We were met by Benedetta who was our guide and she was extremely knowledgable, told us all about the history of the arena and answered questions from the group. It was a fantastic place to visit! Rachel and Matt

Stefano, our guide, was amazing, and the entire trip was just perfect. Highly recommend!

Knowledgeable, covered loads of ground and history. Friendly guide.
