“An excellent experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

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, private tour of Verona, this is who to do it with.

Dear Paul, thank you! It was nice to have the possibility to have a day in the countryside, it gives a complete idea of the territory surrounding Verona. You remember so many things and you've been in so many places: it is hard to find new things for you! But I hope to see you next year. thanks again Silvia

“A weekend to remember!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

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 of the culture and history of Verona is phenomenal and her English was as good (if not better!) than ours and we're Londoners! The bonus though is that she is a lovely, friendly lady and excellent company. So - if you're looking for a private tour, tailor made to meet your interests and you can plan ahead, don't delay. Contact Colors of Italy today.

“Thorough, informative Verona walking tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

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 to see you again in Italy! Silvia

“Underground Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

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. Sylvia was very friendly and her knowledge was outstanding. We paid for a 3 hour personal tour, it was worth every penny.

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 how interesting is the roman and medioeval city underground! many thanks - Silvia

“Verona and environs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

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, a wonderful day spent. I would definitely recommend a private tour of Verona. It's worth the price for the depth and personalized experience. And I definitely recommend Silvia and Colors of Italy

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 - you were so a nice and friendly group! many thanks Silvia
