Valeria B.

Verona, verona, Italy

My 20+ years of expertise in giving city and wine tours make me super happy of what I do.

Very soon, at the very beginning of my career as a guide, I realized that I loved small groups: the smaller, the better. Now, after many years, this is my comfort zone. Working with independent, curious travelers and helping them understand a little more of my Verona, its art, its history, its food&wine, its very Italian mood: this makes my day.

On my private tours, "connect" and "share" are my verbs: I couldn't live without connecting with my travelers and sharing ideas and experiences with them.
In the end, being a tour guide is a way of travelling every day without moving from home!

I am a very, very local guide: I was born and raised in Verona, an adorable, romantic, cozy Italian city and I have seen it changing over time under my eyes!

-Roman Archaeology is my background.
-I get emotional when I taste classy wines.
-"You are a good listener" is the best compliment I have ever received from a traveler.

I go to work by bike, I love good architecture, good pop music & good wines, I read many biographies.
I'm a mother of 3 small globe-trotters.

Here are my tours (feel free of asking if you have special requests):
- My CITY TOUR (my best seller: BTW as a native I'm very proud of the increasing popularity of my hometown)
- AMARONE WINE TOURS out in the cellars or in the taverns of downtown
- A TREK TOUR, for active people and to enjoy lovely views of Verona from above
- A very funny urban SAFARI, if you travel with your FAMILY & KIDS

Please note that I can easily arrange transportation for every tour, if you need and it's not yet included.
Hope to meet you very soon, in the meantime. . . STAY HAPPY!

Valeria was amazing. Her knowledge of the history, art, and culture of Verona was quite impressive, and she is a pleasure to learn from. She was also great with restaurant recommendations.
