The Verona Tour, Lunch, Wine & History

Verona, Italy

Experience hosted by Sara

  1. 3.5 hours
  2. Hosted in English and Italian

What you'll do

The Tour is a dinamic gastronomic walk through the streets of the historic center of Verona with great gourmet stops in old food shops, deli, wine bars and cafés, involving lunch. Guests will follow me (Professional Tour leader and sommelier) admiring the monuments and narrow historic streets, tasting typical Veronese dishes: from classic cheeses and cold cut appetizers to freshly made BIGOLI pasta, or an other local main course (depends in the season), and more gastronomic delights, all paired with delicious local wines, providing so many tastings that it can be considered a FULL LUNCH. During the tour, you will make some very unconventional stops (old Roman ruins/terrace with amazing views ).
It is also included a ride on the CABLE RAILWAY to the most romantic view in Verona.
There's even artisan organic ice-cream ( or our veronese Christmas pudding) at the end in order to fully respect the Italian tradition.

The tour can be considered a full lunch and you will have two tours in one: a nice walking tour of Verona with a local tourist guide combined with a food and wine itinerary.

This is a must-do culinary experience in Verona!!

Expensive for what was provided. Small rolls provided with no explanation to what they were. Lunch was a small selection of tagliatelle-light lunch would be a better description. Wine tasting at end of tour would have been ok if after explaining about rinsing the glasses out with a small amount of wine my wife didn’t get this wine presented to her as the tasting sample!

We loved this tour! Only wish we did it on our first day in Verona. Our tour guide Benedetta was great fun and informative about the food, wine and history of Verona. She also gave us great tips for where to go / eat during our stay. That set us up nicely for our stay. The food and wine was also excellent 👌

The tour was very interesting and at a nice comfortable walking pace. We enjoyed hearing about sights we had seen previously but didn’t have the history. The food and wine stops are excellent.

This is a great tour of Verona with a lot of additional anecdotes and context, plus the amazing stops for wine & pasta. Virginia was very knowledgeable of the history and wine and helped us through the tasting at the local wine shop. A great way to enjoy the city!

We really enjoyed this well organized tour-the pace was perfect, the food tasting felt very local and the wine tasting guy was warm and engaging.

Super tour! Learned so much about Verona’s people, history, culture. Tasted delicious foods I would not have otherwise. Felt like I saw and experienced the best of Verona. Don’t eat before tour as you will stop at a variety of places. Our guide, Virginia, was engaging, funny, informative and so much fun. She loves her city and will make you love it, too. This was our favorite part of our trip and would recommend to anyone.
