Discover Verona: City Highlights Guided Walking Tour

1. Discover Verona: City Highlights Guided Walking Tour

Meet up with your official guide in the center of the city and get ready to discover the delights of this northern Italian city. Explore the streets of Verona’s historical center, taking in the churches and palaces that have helped make this town a UNESCO World Heritage-listed site.   Your first highlight will be Romeo’s house and Juliet’s house. Admire them from the outside while you learn about Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy that inspires hundreds of people to get married every year. But Verona is not only about romance and love ⁠– it’s also the most important and powerful Roman city ever built, and the Arena is proof. Built in 30 AD, the Arena is remarkably well preserved for its age. Learn about its history and how it has survived all these years. Then, enjoy the story of Piazza Dane, the Scala family, and all the historical figures who contributed to making Verona what it is. Take a selfie with a Roman soldier at the Arena, on the Adige River, in front of a glass of wine on the main square, and more.

Admire artistic elements of the highest quality from different periods, including the ever-present contributions of the Scaligeri family. Take a short walk into the city center, where a local guide will take you to the Verona Arena. See one of the finest Roman theaters still in use in existence anywhere in the world. Continue to the Square of Lords (Piazza dei Signori) and Square of Herbs (Piazza delle Erbe), before going to Juliet's House to see messages of love written by visitors from around the world. Go to the Castelvecchio and see the tombs of the Scala family (Arche Scaligere). Look at the Ponte Pietra, a Roman arch bridge that spans the Adige River.

It was an entertaining, very interesting tour, including to unknown corners full of art history in Verona. Of course, the main attractions could not be missing (Arena di Verona, Via Mazzini, Juliet's House, etc...). Everything was explained very well and our super friendly guide was always open to questions. Absolutely great!! Grace Mille.

Well worth taking the tour to get a guide if this city and some valuable insights! We took the evening tour and was a great hour spent learning about the city and much cooler to explore the sights. Suzie was a great guide and gave excellent recommendations - take the tour!

Great, entertaining tour with exciting details about the history of the city but also about Italy in general! The very personable guide Aurora also showed us quieter backyards and also involved our children! Thank you for the exciting, interesting 1.5 hours!

We really enjoyed our guided walk with Alberto. It was a small group and quite laid back. Alberto have a great mix of historical information and interesting stories. It was a good activity to do on our first morning in Verona.

Our guide was excellent. She explained the rich history of Verona very well, and pointed out many fascinating details that we would otherwise have missed! An hour and a half well spent.
