I did a private food tour with Lorella and truly enjoyed every minute of it. She not only showed me some of the gems in Verona (I've tried the delicious "drunken cheese" Ubriaco, Tortelloni, and the best cheese-stuffed Zucchini flower, etc.), but also shared with me so many interesting stories, including the one about her as a child pressing grapes...

Maybe we got Valeria on a bad day but I couldn’t agree with other reviews. We had children in our group which to be fair Valeria said she would tailor the tour around. After we met we all walked a few mins to the first stop. We were disappointed that there was no commentary until we came to our stop... More

Our family of four adults spent a charming morning on foot and in the careful hands of gracious Valeria touring Verona. We saw the prime sites, and so much more. Valeria knows the history, the legend, and the back story, and every alleyway and shortcut, her English is as good as many Americans and she "reads" her clients well... discerning... More

Ron: how sweet! Thank you for the lovely lunch: sharing a meal is building human connections, isn't it? Above all I thank you for telling that I "read" my clients, that is very precious for me and I definitely try to do so. And... yes! You have a friend in Verona! More

We have visited Italy a number of times and always seek local historically knowledgeable guides. Valeria with her vivacious personality is simply put the best guide ever. Valeria gave us a tour of the primary sites in Verona the first day from the antiquities to the balcony of Romeo and Juliet. Valeria kept us laughing while sharing her deep historical... More

Hi Ron! Hi Beverly, Denise and Jack: my Villabartolomea heroes! We had fun all together and when I see your photo at the winery on our Instagram account, I still put a smile on my face.

My wife and I were in Verona on Easter Sunday and were graced by a very warm, articulate and knowledgeable guide, Valeria Biasi. Valeria is a local guide (and the official guide of the prestigious Rick Steves tours) and has an effervescent style that kept us engaged throughout our walk around the picturesque City. Valeria provided rich historical insight on... More

My husband and I were recently in Verona, Italy and spent time with a wonderful guide. Lorella Mostacchi, a local guide (www.aguideinverona.com), led us through different sections of the city and explained the history, art and cultural aspects of what we were seeing. She was knowledgeable, answered our questions thoughtfully, and provided good recommendations for the remainder of our visit.... More

Our guide in Venice recommended Lorella when I mentioned that we wanted to take a side trip to Verona this past May. Lorella was right on point when she suggested that my wife and I take a late train back to Venice so we could spend the whole day in Verona when I initially contacted her to set up our... More

My friend and I booked a bike tour with Valeria for the night we arrived in Verona. We wanted to acquaint ourselves with the city before we started trekking everywhere.
