This tour is perfect for those people who spend in Bologna or Verona a short-term stay and wish to visit as much as they can
A 'must' tour recommended to any first-time visitor and photography lover!
This tour is recommended to people who spend in Verona or Bologna a short-term stay and wish to visit as much as they can in both cities. Both cities can be reached by car even if the best solution is to use trains (read "what's extra"). In case you chose 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. On this tour you can explore a little bit of everything, you cannot expect to learn all about Verona in half a day, but this tour takes you closer to the beautiful soul of the city. Verona is not only the city of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, get the flavour of Verona by walking through its breathtaking squares and amazing streets.
A vibrant medieval city where culture and food are areunexpectedly interwoven. Disco the reason why Bologna is worldwide known as "The Learned" "The Fat" "The Red"
See Verona tour map with stop numbers on "view photos" section.
