“It’s a paradise on earth: you can easily spend a day there, walking or cycling between flowers and ponds with big beautiful fish. There is also a well designed maze, high enough to have real fun.

Historic Site
“It’s the most famous attraction in Verona and you already know it. I just want to give you a couple of tips: -if you are planning to visit it in high season, please note that there will be a huge line! Check in internet the Verona Card that will let you skip the line. -if you love art and music, in the Arena there are plenty events all over the year. There are concerts, opera and ballets and, trust me, it’s a real good and unique experience to do. -if you want to eat watching the Arena you can find plenty touristic places near there...but if you want to eat as locals, I can show you some other places.”
