We recently moved to Verona and decided to take a city tour to better appreciate our new home. Two weeks after our tour we had friends visit and our families took a Safari tour for the children (8 kids total). Both tours were EXCELLENT! Valeria is a wonderful guide that brought out so many interesting facets of fair Verona. Her... More

Lorella was our wonderful guide in Verona. She explained everything in detail to us with great enthusiasm! She also has an abundance of knowledge about the Amarone wine making process and gave us recommendations of what type of wine and where to buy the wine in Verona. She arranged lunch for us at Osteria Casa a Vino. We had a... More

Verona is filled with so many interesting sites, especially in or near the historic center. Valeria took a group of us (all adults) on an introductory walk that focused on the Arena and the area around it. She is fascinating. Not only does her background as an archeologist bring interesting insights, but it's easy to see how interested and passionate... More

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

“Some days are better than others”, sing the U2 (that are from Ireland, exactly as you); some days are (much) worse than others, I say. When I read this review, well that was a bad day indeed! It took me several days to think of a response. That said, what I sensed was a repeated shift in your expectations (“we... 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

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

My wife and I were in Verona on Easter Sunday and were graced by a very warm, articulate and knowledgeable guide, Valeria Biasi.
