The Perfect Tour and Guide
Sep 2021
This was the perfect tour and guide for us. We met our guide, Maria Pia, at the designated fountain meeting spot - finding her with her guide nametag was easy. Maria was super friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the sites and history and stories of Verona. Maria was able to navigate the streets and sites of Verona and provide a great tour without being hampered by the crowds or stuck in long lines. It was a thoroughly enjoyable tour; we highly recommend Maria and this tour.

Verona Brought To LIFE
Jul 2021 • Family
What an AMAZING day we just had in Verona with our guide Francesco!!! I booked this tour because my son (17) loves all things Shakespeare - but we got so much more!

First - he knew our names and used them from the beginning. He treated us like old friends - so lovely. It was also nice to meet the other people on the tour. Up front he asked what we were interested in getting out of the tour and definitely made sure to hit on those points.

Francesco spoke with such love and passion for Verona. It was infectious! We learned so much in such a short time.

Even if you’re not interested in Shakespeare / Romeo & Juliet - definitely take this tour! You will not be disappointed!

Extraordinary experience with Francesco! Totally recommended
Jun 2021 • Solo
Last week I visited Verona for the very first time, and I must be honest: I was not sure about booking a city tour with a guide, because of my previous experiences in other cities, but then I changed my mind. I had the tour with Francesco and the result was that I fell in love with Verona, the city of love. If I could go back again, I would totally repeat the tour: it was worthy of every single penny spent!!

It felt like I was exploring the true spirit of Verona while listening through the history of this town, and that is all because of Francesco’s addiction and affection to the places. I am absolutely sure that I wouldn’t have discovered many of the gorgeous places we’ve been to without him.

His passion for the history, all the curiosities of the city that he told me and, on the top of all, the endless love-story of Romeo and Juliet are a precious souvenir that, thanks to Francesco, I will keep in my heart forever.
He really made me feel like I was a local girl!

Totally recommended!

Wonderfull walk with lovely guide
Jun 2021 • Couples
We had a wunderfull walk through verona with our guide which we highly recommend! She was very knowledgable and did not only tell us about romeo and giulietta but also about veronas broader history. You could feel her passion for the city and its history and she kindly offered to take pictures of us whenever we got to a sight. We would have forgotten about taking pictures because we were so captured in her stories. Further she could answer all our questions and was just a lovely person to spend time with. We highly recomend the tour and the guide!

English walking Verona Tour
Sep 2020
Lovely experience with our guide, Maria. We opted for an English tour. We were kept very captivated by her stories and style. We learnt so much about Verona that we would not have been able to do so without or guide! She helped us to take many lovely photos as well.
Excellent tour and thoroughly recommended if looking for a guide to help learn more about Verona and its history and stories

'You've Got Mail' in Verona
Sep 2020
I loved discovering all the layers of history behind Verona's monuments. Maria Pia took us from the Cretaceous to Contemporary History. She is a fabulous storyteller and already had us at Juliet's place when she revealed a surprise love letter from one of the ladies' husbands - Aww!

Fantastic starter to Verona, highly recommend!
Sep 2020 • Friends
Maria Pia was a fantastic tour guide: knowledgeable, passionate, and a great storyteller! She showed us the history of Verona through its architecture, and pointed out hidden gems along the way. It was never boring and she went out of her way to explain everything in both Italian and English. Joining her walking tour was the best decision we've made so far on our holiday in Verona.

A Great Experience
Our guide was very sweet and elaborate when it came to sharing the history behind Verona and the romantic tragedy between Romeo & Giulietta. The city is very beautiful and worth the tour of learning the significance of it all.
