“Fabulous day visiting Verona & Valpolicella”
We only had a few days to spend in Verona and wanted to make the most of our time there. This tour was perfect for to see the city itself and also visit an Amarone winery. Both guides were wonderful. Davide for our Verona city walking tour and Mario who took us to the Valpolicella wine area…
