Planning Your Verona Visit

How to Get Around?

Verona is a city meant for lovers on foot. Feel free to ditch the car and bid farewell to the confines of public transport, the city of Verona is small enough to traverse without mechanical aid. Of course, should you decide to visit Lake Garda, there are both ferries and buses to aid you on your journey.

Where to Eat Well in Verona?

For even less than twenty euros, it's possible to eat like a royal in Verona. Take a backstreet or two, and find your choice of Trattoria, Caffè, or Osteria. Don’t be shocked to eat communally with strangers; Verona favors many modes of degustation.

Where to Stay?

There are a myriad of winding streets to meander through, and when it comes to home comforts, Verona is not lacking. Piazza delle Erbe is the beating lover’s heart in this Italian city, and staying nearby puts you right in the center of town.

What people are saying about Verona

Stunning family run vineyard, delicious wine & light lunch.

Incredible experience in a stunning setting. It is not made clear on the website on how to get to the vineyard, however if you call ahead you will be able to organise Jacopo to pick you up from Verona and take you back. Alternatively a taxi is €35 to €40 from Verona train station. The tour and light lunch lasted approximately 3.5 hours. The wine samples are generous and the lunch provided included bread, homemade olive oil, salami, cheese, homemade cherry chutney (which is delicious!) and almond biscuits to compliment the wine. If you don't know too much about wine (we didn't) you will leave well informed with a keenness to learn more! Fantastic experience. I couldn't recommend it more.

Verona: Vineyard and Winery Tour with Wine Tasting Reviewed by Suzanne, 15/08/2019

The best wine experience we could have asked for!

The family that lived there were extremely heart warming and welcoming when we got there. We were greeted with coffee as soon as we arrived. The tour guide was so friendly and his English was fantastic. We were taught about the local area and how they grow and produce their different wines. After, we were served local cheese, meats and bread which were probably the best we’ve had since our arrival in Italy. We had three glasses of wine each and they were fantastic! Paired with a beautiful biscuit/dessert. They were in no hurry to get rid of us and took so much time and patience with everyone’s queries and comments. I would highly recommend doing this if you are in the area!

A Unique, Fun, and Delicious Experience!

My husband and I signed up for this class, as we love gelato and were excited to learn how to make it. What we got was so much more - instruction by the talented, passionate and enigmatic Alex, the opportunity to make not just gelato, but tiramisu and peach sorbet as well. Every item we made was delicious and created with care. Alex truly wanted us to be able to recreate the desserts at home, which was great. The kitchen space was beautiful and perfect for this activity. It was very much a hands-on experience, and we had a chance to mingle with the other participants as well. The cost was more than reasonable! An unforgettable experience, highly recommended!

Great value card with access to all main Verona sites

To make the most of your visit, you may be able to save time and money by purchasing a Verona Card, an all-inclusive ticket to most attractions, museums, and churches as well as free bus transportation within the city. There are a few attractions that the card does not cover, but in those cases, it can be used to get a small discount for entry tickets. Plan your day, get up early, take plenty of water, if you need to stop for lunch make it a quick stop or take a picnic. Card was great value & we managed to visit the Roman arena, Lamberti Tower, Juliet's House, Castelvecchi fortress, it's musuem & art gallery.

Great experience & great value for money!

This tour was worth every penny we paid. Driven to and from Verona, to 2 different vineyards - with wine tastings and food at each one. Very informative guide and we learned so much about the wine-making process...and which wines suited our own tastes. Would highly recommend! If you're thinking of taking a tour - make sure you check if there's a Verona pick up point (like there was with this tour), otherwise - with the cheaper tours - you'll need to get yourself to the vineyards and back which could cost you more.
