“Great walking tour in Verona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Spent a lovely morning with Elisa in Verona. Her knowledge of the area was impressive and she has a lovely and entertaining way of storytelling. We would highly recommend this tour. It was a great way to get some insight into Verona.

“Tap into the Heart of Verona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We booked Silvia Baschirotto for a 3 hour walking trip around Verona. There was so much to see and hear about, Silvia pointed us in the direction of what we could see on our own as well over the next 4 days we were in the city.

We felt we saw the historic sites with "behind the scene" history pointed out. We were taken to see the old Roman foundations within restaurants and along the riverbank. Churches and their history was pointed out for us to go to in our own time. And all the frescos and other historic remains - it was a question of looking up as well as down to see how Verona developed over hundreds of years and is today.

Without such an enthusiastic and edifying introduction from Silvia, we would not have seen and enjoyed as much of Verona as we did.

“Fantastic & Knowledgeable Guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

My two daughters and I booked a morning tour with Siliva in June of this year. She was absolutely wonderful. She allowed us to choose the amount of time and give her some information about us so she could show us things of interest to us. Not only did she show us some interesting things throughout Verona we never would have known about, but she provided excellent stories along the way. (Her english is perfect). She also introduced us to some Verona-only treats in a local bakery (yum) and tigellas, which we soon became addicted to! I look forward to visiting Verona again with my entire family and enlisting the help of Silvia yet again. Thank you!!

“Excellent tour guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

A friend and I went to Verona and we used Silvia. We had a 5 hour walking tour and stopped for lunch on route. She was delightful and very knowledgable. It was a very good day and we felt we saw a great deal of Verona that a lot of others tourists might easily miss. She recommended 2 restaurants which turned out to be great. Restaurant Maffei for lunch was great a lovely courtyard location and restaurant 12 Apostoli for dinner, really excellent food. She also suggested other places to visit including an Italian garden which was really beautiful. All in all I would highly recommend her.

Dear Marylin, thank you so much indeed! It was so funny talking with you in that Osteria, I really enjoyed the time we spent togheter! And, it was interesting to see a 5 hours tour in Verona excluding the Arena and Juliet's house - normally a "must to see" in Verona. Thanks again, greetings to your friend and your husband. Silvia

“Verona with Silvia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

My boyfriend and I booked a two hour tour with Silvia last Saturday. She was great - passionate, informed, enthusiastic. He was particularly interested in architecture, so she tailored the tour to that. She took us off the beaten track to places we would never have found and also took us to the major tourist sites. Although we booked for two, it lasted an extra half hour and she did not charge us any extra. I would recommend it as a great way to see the place with limited time. Well done Silvia.
