My two daughters and I booked a morning tour with Siliva in June of this year. She was absolutely wonderful. She allowed us to choose the amount of time and give her some information about us so she could show us things of interest to us. Not only did she show us some interesting things throughout Verona we never would... More

A friend and I went to Verona and we used Silvia. We had a 5 hour walking tour and stopped for lunch on route. She was delightful and very knowledgable. It was a very good day and we felt we saw a great deal of Verona that a lot of others tourists might easily miss. She recommended 2 restaurants which... More

My boyfriend and I booked a two hour tour with Silvia last Saturday. She was great - passionate, informed, enthusiastic. He was particularly interested in architecture, so she tailored the tour to that. She took us off the beaten track to places we would never have found and also took us to the major tourist sites. Although we booked for... More

Sylvia took three of us on a two day private tour, one day in and around Verona itself, the other around Lake Garda. We had an excellent experience! Sylvia is extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, engaged with her subject and well able to communicate her knowledge in an interesting way. I have no hesitation in recommending - If you want a customised,... More

We have just spent a wonderful weekend in Verona thanks to the hard work of Sylvia from Colors of Italy. We booked 2 days with Sylvia and she put together an amazing programme taking us to lots of venues including a private villa, wine tasting in a family vineyard etc that we would never have found without her. Her knowledge... More

Silvia is a delightful, informative local resident with a passion for her city. She designs her tour to meet the individual needs of her customers. She points out fascinating features of the city that we did not notice wandering around by ourselves. Highly recommended.

Dear Philip, thank you! This is exactly what we tried to do. Me and Elisa try to organize always and only tailor-made tours according to the interests of our clients. Every tour is different from the others, because the people we meet are different. I'm very happy you like it, we try to do our best. Many thanks and hope... More

Excellent tour, booked a couple of days before we arrived in Verona. Sylvia corresponded via email beforehand and by mobile on the day and was very accommodating. The tour was amazing - we visit the cellars of local restaurants, 5* hotel, shops, alleyways and private courtyards and shown the roman excavations and historical architectural features hidden from the general public....

Dear Jacqueline and Andrew, thank you so much indeed! The undreground tour of Verona is one of my favourite tours but we can do it only with some time in advance! In your case we were very lucky to be able to do it, normally we need at least one or two weeks in advance! But it's amazing to see... More

We did a private customized tour of Verona, lake Garda and valpolicella. Silvia was superb and customized the tour for the 7h we had. She was knowledgeable and friendly and we gained an appreciation of Verona that made us want to come back for more. The surrounding hillside region is lovely and quiet and contrasted with the lake. All in,... More

Dear Yvonne, thank you a lot!! It was a great idea to share the day in 2 parts: morning in Verona - afternoon in Valpolicella and Lake Garda! I'm happy you enjoyed it, I liked it a lot, I'd like to suggest this possibility of a day in Verona and countryside to other people in the future. Many thanks indeed... More

Really great company with friendly, knowledgeable guides. Silvia from Colors of Italy took my wife and I on a walking tour around Verona. Within even a short distance from our hotel, she showed us things we would certainly have missed. She has a deep understanding of this city and its complex history, but manages to convey all this in a... More

Dear Malcom and Leah, it was so funny to walk with you! You have a great sense of humour - as normally English people have - I felt able to say everything was in my mind! And yes, we covered not so much in term of space - but a lot in term of art/history - even this thing was... More

Silvia took me on a 3 hour tour (last minute!) and was passionate, very talkative and knowledgable on the whole town. She was able to fill the entire tour with facts and interesting diversions, and adapted immediately to any preferences on what or when I wanted to see sights. Highly recommended!
