Full description

Embark on a 2.5-hour guided walking tour through the ancient streets of Verona. Visit historical landmarks dating from Roman, medieval, and Renaissance times and learn the history behind each turn from your expert guide. Start your guided walking adventure at the Piazza Bra, surrounded by the first medieval city wall, and see the Renaissance Palazzo Della Gran Guardia and Roman amphitheater. Enjoy a short walk along via Mazzini and arrive at the remains of the Roman city wall and gate, called "Porta Borsari." From the Adige river, admire the huge medieval Castelvecchio and its bridge, a reminder of this once-mighty military stronghold. Stop at the old Forum Romanum, transformed into a market square during medieval times. Here, see the old "Corte Sgarzerie," where wool was carded, stamped, and sold. Continue to the Piazza delle Erbe, surrounded by the stunning baroque Maffei Palace and the painted facades of the Mazzanti's houses. Next, pass Juliet's house and admire it from the street. Arrive at Piazza dei Signori and marvel at the statue of Dante in the center. Behind the Della Scala palaces, see the well-preserved tombstones of the old lords of Verona and continue to see Romeo's house. At via Sottoriva, pass old porticoes and bustling local restaurants and head towards Bra Molinari. Here, visit the only Roman bridge left and take in the views of Verona's countryside. From the riverbank, you can see Mount Saint Peter, an Austrian fortress, and the remains of the Roman theater on top.

Manuela is a little whirlwind in the truest sense of the word. It provides a lot of interesting information about the history of the city and region. She also knows how to tell about little things that you would otherwise just walk past. Because of the information we were able to enjoy the second day in Verona in a completely different way. A short stopover with vino or aperol, also to catch your breath, would have upgraded the whole thing.

If you are an art critic at the Sgarbi level, then you will have other ways to visit Verona, but if you are just people who want to know something about one of the wonderful Italian cities, this tour is for you. An excellent smattering of history from the Roman Empire to the Risorgimento, and then, off to see with your own eyes the vestiges of all these centuries. For the "do it yourself" tourist it is the top of satisfaction. Obviously, the words "wear comfortable shoes" are not redundant ...

Manuela was an incredible guide that knew exactly how to make Verona an engaging city for three college students. She traced the history of Verona through different hidden elements of the city that made the tour dynamic and worth it.
