Full description
Meet your guide in the city center of Verona and start exploring the town. The fist stop will be Castelvecchio, the magnificent medieval castle built by Scaligeri family. Then with your local guide you'll reach Piazza Brà and the Arena di Verona. Admire the Roman amphitheatre's architecture and learn about the old games of gladiators. Today Arena is setting for International Festivals, Music events and the famous Opera Lirica. After taking some memorable photos of ancient roman ruins and some beautiful squares, pass by Juliet's Balcony.  Afterwards, enter the Verona Arena and visit one of the world’s great open-air concert venues. Look beyond the façade of the pink marble monument on Piazza Bra, hear stories of gladiators and famous operas in the amphitheatre. Your guide will tell you little known stories and reveal facts normally concealed in the mighty stonework.

Priscilla was a great tour guide on this tour! Very authentic, could answer any question and the tour was designed very lively by her. The Veronality team is a must when you are in Verona and want to book tours. Be it Lake Garda, a tour of Verona or a wine tasting.

We had a very good and informative time with Isabella. She has shown us the ancient Verona as from the very early history until the end of the second world war. She spent a few words on Shakespeares story, but not too much, exactly what we wanted. We went to the Arena and Isabella gave us some interesting details about the building, he architectural details and how it is used nowadays.
