If you are on a flying visit to Verona, this is the private walking tour for you with the sights that should not be missed
Luckily for the traveller without much time, Verona is a very compact city with a lot of interesting sights within the old centre.
This private guided walk is not a history conference, but a stroll that begins at piazza Brà, taking time to see the Arena from outside. After passing some fine "palazzi", a brief stop near the riverbank of the Adige with a view of Castelvecchio: impressive brick castle of the Della Scala clan.
Through Porta Borsari and following the Corso, the walk continues to Piazza Erbe: a colourful panoply of buildings encases the square, including the charming Casa Mazzanti, the 12th century 275fts high Torre dei Lamberti, the shorter Torre del Gardello and the yellow sandstone Palazzo Maffei. From Piazza Erbe the arch leads to the stately Piazza dei Signori: the civic centre of Verona with the the grand gothic tombs of the Della Scala dynasty. The tour ends at the house of Juliet: Verona's urban myth.
Please, enquire for bigger groups.
Arena, Castelvecchio, Piazza Erbe, Piazza Signori, Arche Scaligere, Juliet's house.

Da wir eine kleine Gruppe von 7 Leuten (alles Familie) waren und einen privaten Führer wollten, hatten wir Lorella für die 2h Tour durch Verona gebucht. Es war großartig und mehr als empfehlenswert! Nicht langweilig, alles dabei: Kunst, Kultur, Geschichte und Kulinarik haben wir quasi "im Vorbeigehen" aufgeschnappt. Lorella ist sehr sympathisch und hat die Tour sehr kurzweilig und nicht trocken gestaltet. Nochmal: nur zu empfehlen!!
