Explore the heart of Verona and enjoy the charms of this wonderful city’s glorious history. Walk through the main streets of the old town, accompanied by one of our expert guides.
First, visit Piazza Bra, one of the loveliest squares in the city, home to the symbol of Verona: the magnificent Arena! Admire the imposing architecture of this Roman amphitheatre, perfectly preserved and dating back to the 1st century B.C. You will learn how it was originally a venue for legendary but cruel battles, where the gladiators of Ancient Rome would fight to the death. Today, the Arena is world-renowned as an annual venue for famous festivals, music events, and large-scale opera performances featuring well-known international artists.
The walk will continue through the charming narrow streets of the old town, where your guide will take you back in time through the history of this wonderful city, as you admire the key monuments from Roman and medieval times, such as the stunning Cathedral and the Scaliger Tombs.
As you move further into the heart of Verona, the atmosphere becomes increasingly romantic: the moment you have all been waiting for has finally arrived! Relive the emotions and anguish of the greatest love story ever told: Shakespeare’s masterpiece, “Romeo and Juliet.” Discover why this city was chosen as the backdrop for the tragic events that descend upon these two lovers. Your guide will take you to the courtyard overlooked by the famous balcony at the home of the Capulets, on which Juliet stands to deliver her famous monologue that seals the young couple’s eternal love.
The last stop on this guided walking tour is in the wonderful Piazza delle Erbe, where you can admire the ancient monument of the Madonna Verona fountain, with its large basin containing thermal water, as well as other famous monuments such as the Lamberti Tower.
