With the eyes of a local: all what you can't miss
(Tour suitable for travelers coming to Verona by train: there are many, easy connections. I pick you up at the train station)
"O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?"
On this tour we enter the famous courtyard of Juliet's house and see her legendary balcony to discover that love, passion, sacrifice, courage, tenderness, dedication are timeless emotions. We see also Romeo's house and Prince Escalus's burial place. We enjoy colours and sounds of the piazza Erbe, where Medieval towers, ancient palazzi and statues overlook an everyday market. Beside it, piazza dei Signori is instead quiet, elegant and has a charme of its own. We won't miss Castelvecchio: a very special castle where Medieval history, contemporary architecture and the riverside scenery wonderfully mix together.
And, last but not least, the incredible Arena: the best preserved amphitheatre of the Roman Empire, place of cruel gladiator fights in the past and, nowadays, the largest Opera stage. . . in the world!

Valerie has a wealth of local knowledge and was excellent at keeping my family (11,11,15 and my wife who is a art professional) interested and engaged during our 3 hour tour of the city. She had many stories about the history of the area, showed us some hidden spots we would have never noticed on our own, and was always able to answer questions about most any topic we raised - whether specific buildings we passed or pieces of art we saw. we would highly recommend her as a guide.
