A 'must' tour recommended to any first-time visitor and photography lover! See tour map with itinerary in green colour.

Verona is really an open air museum, the perfect city to browse around. On this tour you can explore a little bit of everything. This tour takes you closer to the beautiful soul of the city and sets you up for independent exploration during the rest of your stay. Get the flavour of Verona by walking through its breathtaking squares and amazing streets, learning about its past and beauty. There is no entrance fees to be paid for. The tour foresees the visit of Verona city centre and San Pietro hill where you will discover old sites and see the best views overlooking the city. This is a full day tour therefore in order to give people time to rest a bit the tour can be splitted in two parts, half in the morning and half in the afternoon. Break time is not included in the 5-hour tour time. The guide will drop you at a place for your lunch and will pick you up later on.

Manuela was a pleasure to spend a day with! She was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We learned a great deal about the history of Verona and you couldn't help but feel the passion she had for the city she was sharing with us. Thank you Manuela for a wonderful day!
