‘Denis the teacher’ was the tour guide
We had a tour today booked through Viator. Our guide was an Italian history teacher . He made it fun and interactive and his knowledge of the history of this city was outstanding. He made history come alive. Well worth the cost.

Entertaining and informative tour
We booked a tour with Maria Pia Girolami on the recommendation of a friend. The tour was wonderful. Maria Pia met us at the meeting point, and right away began sharing stories and interesting facts about Verona that took us from the Roman period up to the time of Romeo and Juliet. Even after the tour we were searching the buildings for telltale signs of the different Verona historical periods! She also accommodated our need to be at a certain point in Verona to attend the opera. Overall it was a great tour experience with Maria Pia.

Awesome historical tour
May 2019 • Couples
Francesco was a phenomenal tour guide. His knowledge and enthusiasm about Verona and the various historical facts is astounding. His sense of humor kept things interesting, he fielded questions well, and in general was a wealth of information. Definitely one of our highlights for our entire trip.

Tour in evening with Francesco. He was warm, funny and enthusiastic. He spent extra time giving us some of the history of Verona in addition to the dark/mysterious stories/history. He also adapted the tour to our current knowledge and interests. It made our trip special. Eimear.

Interesting and informative tour with lovely guide
Jun. 2018 • Solo
Maria Pia is a professional and warm guide, who gives her heart to the job, and that helps lift the facts to a higher level of satisfaction for the tourist. I was the only one on this tour, so was privileged to have her undivided attention. I learned so much and felt very comfortable with Maria Pia. She kindly took pics of me in front of major attractions, and as a solo traveller i was very thankful. She was engaging from start to finish and we even had a hug at the end. I very much recommend this tour, and any tour involving Maria Pia.

Brilliant tour guide
So...i didn't quite get to go on this tour as I was the only person booked for it when I was there. However, the lovely tour guide (Maria Pia) put me in another walking tour that evening and made such an effort to also include some of the things that would have been on my original tour. So in the end I actually got a very good tour with a bit of everything thrown in.

The tour guide Maria really knows her stuff!! And is so refreshingly passionate about her job and her city! She's a true Veronese citizen! So friendly! She even walked me back to the start of the tour (still explaining the history of Verona along the way), so that I could find my way back to my apartment!!

I would very much recommend her, she's wonderful

Gleeful guide
May 2018 • Couples
We booked this tour on Viator, not knowing exactly what to expect. We were wholeheartedly surprised. Maria was friendly and helpful and absolutely brimming with anecdotes, information and insight into all kinds of facets of the history, architecture and style of Verona. She took us under her wing and showed us far more than we bargained for and really took the lid off Verona for us.

If you really want the detailed view of Verona with any question answered and every wish addressed, you can do no better than Maria. We wish her the best!
