Very soon in my career 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 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 am listed in the prestigious Rick Steves guidebook
-I get emotional when I taste classy wines and I am a Level 1 sommelier
I go to work by bike, I love good architecture, good 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, which is my best seller, where I show you around as a proud native
- AMARONE WINE TOURS, where you taste one of the best Italian wines with a Sommelier
- 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 and. . . I hope to be able to meet you very soon!
A Recent Review of this guide
Of all the guides we hired in Europe, Valeria was the clearest and most engaging in her explanation of the sights of Verona. She was especially effective in getting to the level of our 2 boys. No tour guide droning on, but someone who got us thinking with her manner of delivery. It is no wonder that when we ask the boys which is their favourite city of the many we visited on our trip, they named Verona! Valeria brought the beautiful city to life for us, and we really enjoyed the day spent with her!

I am a local guide of Verona: I do not deliver tours in Milan (only pick up). I am not a driver. I can accompany you in your vehicle or I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
