This tour is perfect for those people who spend in Verona or Mantua a short-term stay and wish to visit as much as they can


This tour is recommended for people who spend in Verona or Mantua a short-term stay and wish to visit both cities. Being Mantua located about 44 kms (27, 5 miles) east of Verona a full day tour gives people the possibility to visit both Verona and Mantua city centres in one-day tour. Both cities can be easily reached by car even if the best way to travel to these cities is by train (for train ticket prices see section "what's extra"). In case you choose to visit the cities by train I'll be with you during the transfers.
VERONA is really an open air museum, the perfect city to browse around. Get the flavour of Verona by walking through its breathtaking squares and streets, exploring a little bit of everything and learning about its past and beauty.
MANTUA surprises its visitors by her exceptional character. Small but spectacular, from every corner the city of Mantua offers an encounter with history and beauty. It was in Mantua that Shakespeare's Romeo heard of Juliet's death and Verdi set his opera Rigoletto

A Recent Review of this tour

We enjoyed every moment of our tour spent with dear, intelligent, kind Manuela! We toured a Reggio parmigiana cheese factory in colecchio and a prosciutto tour in langhiano. Manuela made the processes of creating cheese and prosciutto come to life as we actually missed most of each tours' demonstration because our family arrived so late due to unforeseen circumstances. She even got us a discount because we missed so much but we still enjoyed touring both facilities and experienced awesome tastings.
