This tour is excellent, especially if you don't have a lot of time in Verona. Fabio is a wonderful guide and story teller who clearly loves what he's doing. If you only have time for one tour and you love a bit of history, this is the tour to be doing.

Alle haupt Sehenswürdigkeiten mit dieser Karte stehen zur Verfügung. Das Büro ist in der Mitte der Stadt und sehr einfach erreichbar. In großem und ganzen bin ich ganz zufrieden und kann diese Karte jedem empfehlen.

Fabio’s tour was amazing and one of my favourite ever walking tours. He is so passionate and took us on a journey through the history of his amazing city. I had a great time and highly recommend booking this tour:

The tour was really informative and not the usual tourist-trap. The guide was knowledgeable and he was able to keep my attention and curiosity. Highly recommended!

Was only here for 2-3 hours and was able to do 4-5 activities! Would recommend getting this pass if in Verona!
