I only had one day in Verona, so I wanted to make the most of it. This tour exceeded all of my expectations. We saw the major sights, learned some amazing history about the city, and sampled the local cuisine (all of which was delicious). I would do the tour again!

Tourist Information said there would be a discount off the price of the Funicular, but this was not the case. Otherwise used with no problems.

The Verona Day Pass made it extremely convenient to visit the main attractions of Verona with utmost ease.

Great offer if you want to visit various attractions. And no Ned to wait in the queue at the Arena

Wonderful guide, Fabio who showed us the hidden gems of Verona
