They verona card was very handy. once we got off the train from the station we did have to walk to get it validate it it was about a 20 minute walk. But it was very easy to get the card and they person at the desk was very helpful with times for the bus nd where to go and what we could see and do. The card was most useful for the arena, we got to skip the queue nd go in straight away, we also had entry to museums md everything. The verona was definitely worth the money it was cheaper to just get into the arena with it nd we got to see plenty other places too.

Well worth, covers lots of good places for visits and fast tracking so less time wasted queueing , extra day for 5euros, we paid 25 for 48 hours, bootable online but need to go to Centres for card Can use the buses BUT need the bus route information in the leaflet so take advantage of this facility

I was in Verona on an extremely busy day with tourists. With the Verona Card despite lines of 100 hundred meters we entered immediately. The card gave us priority entry by skipping the line. I didn't use public transport. I recommend the purchase

We probably saved ourselves an hour by skipping the queue at the Arena. Good value and a great, convenient way to experience the city

Aurora extremely kind and helpful, very nice with children and undisputed preparation. Advised.
