private guided walking tour in the mysterious verona with sommelier wine tastings
Verona is well known for its Shakespeare associations, attracts a multinational gaggle of tourists to its pretty piazzas and knot of lanes, most in search of Romeo and Juliet. It is the setting for Romeo and Juliet and you will be able to appreciate the atmosphere that Shakespeare conjured in one of his most popular plays. Celebrated by Shakespeare, who made it famous as the romantic setting for the moving tale of Romeo and Juliet, Verona is a splendid, ancient corner of the Veneto region, nestling between the river Adige and Lake Garda, and intimately linked to their waters.
But beyond the heart-shaped kitsch and Renaissance romance, Verona is a bustling centre, its heart dominated by a mammoth, remarkably well-preserved 1st-century amphitheatre, the venue for the city’s annual summer opera festival. Add to that countless churches, a couple of architecturally fascinating bridges over the Adige, regional wine and food from the Veneto hinterland and some impressive art, and Verona shapes up as one of northern Italy’s most attractive cities.
Verona will fascinate you with its incomparable flair and you will revel in its art, architecture, opera, and literary heritage. This is a journey across more than 2,000 years, from the foundation of the town right up to the present day. Already in ancient times Verona was linked to the river as an essential route for traffic and commerce and it was not by chance that the Romans, who well understood where best to found their cities, established themselves there. Precisely because it was navigable as far as Trento, the Adige was a fundamental communication route and the economy of Verona, like those of the villages along the river, was closely linked to water. This is testified to by the numerous mills, the images of the characteristic washerwomen and the monasteries, which had the right to exploit the waters of the river.
During the walking tour in Verona your personal guide will tell you all about its fascinating history and show you the most important architectural heritage following with Amarone wine tasting in the historical and cozy vinoteca with sommelier who will tell you about famous wines of Veneto region.
