Fabio showed us the city in a great way, explained everything and answered every question. I'm in a wheelchair and he also checked that I always had a lowered curb as much as possible. He made sure that when we stopped, everyone was in the shade in this heat. He told us the highlights and gave us hints what we could do afterwards. knew our names until the end, just great. Thanks Fabio keep it up.

Ended up with the only one on the day, felt like a VIP lols. Walked around Verona and saw major sites, as well as less well known places. Verona is beautiful! And the guide definitely made a difference in a hot summer day. He also provided extra tips on things to do/ look out for for my own afterwards.

Manuela gave a great tour and did not stop her commentary for the whole of the two and a half hours! Really enjoyed it, in spite of the heat!

The tour is highly recommended. Fabio conveyed this very excitingly and with a lot of humor. Be sure to book with him: Fabio Massimo Rapanà

Manuela was a fantastic guide, with an obvious passion for Verona and great knowledge.
