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. Valeria is one helluva a smart lady, FYI she's an archeologist and she knows her town like nobody's business. We rode all over the city and got to see all... More

Lorella did an excellent job of guiding our group of 8, which included a 10 and 13 year old. We felt that Lorella was especially valuable in Verona, in helping us get the most out of it, versus just wandering on our own. We particularly enjoyed the bits she volunteered about personal life in Verona and the Italian people, in... More

We were limited on our time in Verona and wanted to make the most of it. We used Lorella who was very knowledgeable and helpful in making the most of our time. She shared information with us that we would not have learned on our own. Very glad we used her on our trip as we saw the highlights that... More

Thank you for walking with me through Verona: one of Italy's most underrated town despite its beauty, its history and its cozy city center. Many visitors choose it just for a short stop travelling from the major hubs like Milan or Venice, but once they walk through it they understand they should have stayed longer, as it happened to you!...

With just 2 full days to enjoy in Verona, my husband and I decided to book a tour with Lorella for our first morning in town. I am very interested in history, especially The Romans, so asked Lorella ahead of time to focus on Roman Verona for our tour. We had a wonderful 2 hours seeing the sights and learning... More

Valeria took me on the Carlo Scarpa tour in September this year, I visited Verona for the specific purpose of taking the tour to see the work of the Architect Carlo Scarpa. I was not at all disappointed, Valeria arranged access to the non-public areas and interiors of the Banco Popolare (which I would not have been able to do... More

Hello John, thank you for your nice feed back. Verona is a small city and I think that its identity is hidden in small details: that's why it's been a pleasure to take you around, because of your sensitivity for little things. And... you came here from very far away, so that's even more relevant for me! Take care! More

We took the 'Verona for the First Time' tour with Lorella. She was an excellent guide! Great information, our entire group loved it (10 people). Saw all the highlights. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone short on time that wanted to get a feel for the city. She even met us at our hotel, and walked us back... More

If you're spending a couple of days in Verona, first get a map from tourist office (invaluable), get a 2 day Verona card (15€). this allows you into about 18 attractions, including museums & churches. you can purchase them from the first attraction you visit & will save you money. EG, Giulietta house (6€), Torre Dei Lamberti(6€), the Arena (6€),... More

We took the train from Rome to Verona and it was very fast with lovely views of the countryside. Valeria arranged for a driver/car to pick us up from the train station; the driver then took us up to a hill where we got a birdseye view of the city, river, etc. It is a beautiful, city on a river...
