What you'll do

We'll start with the incredible Arena, a Roman amphitheater older than the Colosseum and still used today! Then, we'll continue along Via Mazzini, where most tourists notice the beautiful shops, but where we'll notice details and unique stories. We will then enjoy the lively Piazza Erbe, with its market and its picturesque buildings, and Piazza dei Signori, considered "the living room of Verona" for its elegance. In its buildings you can read all the history of Verona: the remains of the Roman city, the first 12th century Romanesque town hall, the first residence of the Scala family (XIV century), the 15th century Loggia di Frà Giocondo, the lions of San Marco placed by the Venetians when the city was annexed to the Serenissima and then chiseled away by Napoleon's troops, the Statue of Dante erected to reaffirm our Italian culture and language in the Austrian era, and finally the entry into the kingdom of Italy: all the history of Verona enclosed in this single Piazza! After having also seen the Scala family Tombs (the monumental tombs of the Lords of Verona), we'll pass to the neighboring medieval inner courtyards, as suggestive as only the ancient corners can be, and we'll finally end with the famous Casa di Giulietta, with its balcony and the statue of Juliet, among the most visited single monuments in the whole world.
Other things to note
Please notice the tour starts at 13.45 (1.45pm), but try and be there on time.

I've been a registered tourist guide in Verona for more than 30 years, but still very much in love with my city and my job. I would love to make you see the city from the point of view of a local, make you discover corners and alleys that you wouldn't discover by yourselves, tell you the fascinating and involving stories that are behind the buildings, share with you some moments of the typical Italian life and grant you memories which will last forever. Verona is a fascinating city, discover it with a proper guide and with a local at the same time, come and get in love with the place I'm so lucky to call home ... and let's become friends!

Where you'll be

We'll discover some of the stories that the 2,000-year-old Arena can tell us. Walking along Via Mazzini we'll see things that nobody notices and discover hidden corners. In Piazza Erbe we'll relive the life of past centuries and in Piazza Signori we'll read in the buildings the whole history of Verona. We'll then see the first residence of the Scala family and their tombs, and through suggestive inner courtyards we'll finally reach Juliet's House

Maria Pía is a great guide. So knowledgeable and accommodating! We arrived late due to transportation issues and she stayed in communication with me at all times and rearranged the time so we could have our tour when she could have simply cancel. You can ask her about been taken to other places. If she can, she will.

We had a great time with Francesco. He is incredibly knowledgable about the history and current state of Verona. He started the tour by asking about our expectations so he could personalize the tour as much as possible. Which was amazing. We had a great time and recommend this yo anyone.

Francesco was really great on this tour. It was just me, so he let me personalise it to what I was most interested in (for me this was any interesting history in Verona/its creation as a city). We also went into the emotional/popular history of Verona (Romeo and Juliet) Francesco was fantastic at explaining things in a simple and engaging way. He asked questions to keep me engaged. You could really tell that he loved what he was talking about. Thank you!
