Verona: Crimes Scenes City Walking Tour

5. Verona: Crimes Scenes City Walking Tour

A trail of blood can be followed throughout the centuries of Verona’s history: from the sand covered ground of the Roman Arena, which absorbed human and animal blood of ferocious combat and executions, up to Saint Peter’s castle where in Longobard times blood was drunk out of a human skull, to the river Adige where 2000 Paduan prisoners have been slaughtered by a tyrant in the Middle Ages. The meanders of the town illumine a history of heinous crime scenes and unresolved mysteries. For each balcony decorated with flowers and illuminated by the sunlight, there is the equivalent of a tenebrous street inhabited by rats. Every town, including Verona, has its dark corners, where evilness and sin hide within ravines. It’s a land of wine, but of blood as well, and it is difficult to make out which of these two liquid substances flowed to majority throughout more than two millennia of history. In the hometown of Romeo and Juliet, little streets, small sections of the town and the bends of the river became the stage of far more tragic events. Verona possesses a black soul as well. On the other hand, let him who is without sin cast the first stone: the idyllic community does not exist. This itinerary which commences with real historic facts, such as the duels to the death among gladiators, subsequently focuses on long forgotten tragic events which took place in Verona, trying to cast light and possibly understand the crimes. The young and naïve Isolina Canuti, the ambiguous personality of Countess Frola Milani, the prostitutes Bernardina Ferrarese and Giuseppina Baruffolo, as well as unlucky Carlotta Aschieri are involved in just a portion of long forgotten tales, which recently have been enriched with unknown details, thus casting a sinister image upon the scaligerous town.

The guide Fabio made the tour very engaging and interesting. So that this was quite entertaining for our ten-year-old son. You can feel his heart and soul, that he enjoys this work and that he has studied the history of Verona in depth. It was the best city tour we got in Italy. And in German, the selection isn't that huge... For the fact that we were 10 participants, I felt the price was above the pain threshold, but in this case there was a decent return service.

It was the first time we explored a city with our three children. It was all a lot of fun, and very informative as well. In addition, Verona is a very beautiful city and we liked it a lot. The puzzles were great and the level of difficulty was just right. Gladly again

Was fantastic to walk around the city this way. And very handy because that way you can see most of the sights and you know exactly where to go. There is no time pressure, you can see everything at your own pace and enjoy a nice terrace in between.

We really enjoyed this style of self tour, which helps you see all of the key attractions whilst being a fun challenge to solve the clues. We’ll keep doing these in any future city we visit.

Super leuk, deze tour! Niet elke puzzel was even duidelijk, maar met een hint kom je er wel uit. Leuk dat je zo iets van de stad ziet, met wat achtergrond informatie.
