This activity will end right where it started.
In the afternoon, meet your storytelling guide at the city’s Arena amphitheater, an ancient Roman artifact that pre-dates the Colosseum and has been in use for more than 2,000 years. From here, set off on a 1.5-hour stroll through Verona's winding medieval streets while your guide offers an overview of the city’s ancient roots and fascinating history. Although the Capulet and Montague families are fictional, Verona’s past is ripe with stories of fatal feuds, romance, and drama that made it a natural setting for Shakespeare's tragedy.

Let your imagination run wild with visions of young love and secret trysts at Juliet’s House, a historic home featuring a much-visited balcony and statue of the doomed protagonist (though any Shakespearean connections here are dubious). Continue on to Herbs Square, lined by a bustling local market and stately palaces. Learn the history behind landmarks including Lamberti Tower, the Madonna Verona fountain, and the medieval Domus Mercatorum, one-time home of the city’s merchant guild.

See evidence of Verona's multilayered past at Signori Square, where Roman, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, and modern architecture converge in a fascinating urban landscape. Finally, wind through quiet courtyards and backstreets to reach the tombs of the Scala family, a ruling clan of the 13th and 14th centuries whose scandals and power struggles are reminiscent of the tangled family feuds in Romeo and Juliet.
Pass By:  
Arena di Verona
Learn about the romance, drama and family feuds of Verona that led Shakespeare to choose the city as the setting for Romeo and Juliet. Start your 2-hour guided tour at the Arena that was built before Rome’s Colosseum and is still used for cultural events. Walk to Juliet's house to see the famous balcony and the statue of Juliet. Continue to Herbs Square, where you’ll find a lively market, the Lamberti Tower and the ancient Domus Mercatorum. Visit historic Signori Square, where the entire history of Verona can be seen. You’ll find structures from the Romans through the Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance periods. Pass through medieval courtyards on your way to the Scala Family Tombs.

Fun tour
, Jun 2022
We learned a lot about Verona on this tour. Please note that the title says footprints in Romeo and Juliet but we only spent about 5 mins at Juliet's house. If you are expecting a tour only on Romeo and Juliet let the tour guide know in the beginning as they ask you what you want to get out of the tour. It was a fun and informative tour. But expected more on Romeo and Juliet.
Great Tour

Fascinating stories. Great Tour. Maria Pia was a fantastic guide, spoke excellent english! Really catered for what we wanted
Amazing tour guide who made the history of Verona so exciting and interesting!!
, May 2022
This was by far the best part of our trip to Verona! Our tour guide was so amazing! She took us around Verona leading us up to Juliet’s house. But before getting there we got the full history of the city and stopped and some really special places that would have been missed without a guide! I was with my 13 year old daughter and our tour guide made told stories to make the history so exciting and interesting! Definitely take this tour! You will not regret it! The tour guide definitely makes it worth it!!

Romeo and Juliet walking tour

Our tour guide was wonderful! Very personable and sweet lady! Informative about the town of Verona beyond just Romeo and Juliet!

Maria Pia is simply the best tour guide we have ever had! She was engaging, funny and extremely knowledgeable. Couldn’t recommend her, and the tour, highly enough.
Could not hear or understand the tour guide.
, May 2022
We could not hear our guide talk and she explained some history of the colosseum which we heard very little of, then in the next 10 minutes she explained it in Italian to a non English speaking person and we left. I explained to here that we could not hear her. I the requested a return of monies and I was told no, very disappointed!
icon Response from Host , May 2022
sorry to hear that you did not understand. The guide is mother tongue and the explanation was in English as always. Your grim effort to downgrade this experience is balanced by the other dozens of 5 stars reviews. Thanks again for choosing us.

Francesca did an outstanding job. He was funny, energetic, and charming all the while loading us with interesting facts about his wonderful city. He intro covered 2000 years of history in about 5 minutes. Seriously. The tour lasted almost 2 hours. Plenty of time was spent discussing the Capulets and Montagues. Francesca brought this city to life for my wife and me. Thank you!
A wonderful tour in a beautiful city
, May 2019
This was a spectacular tour in the beautiful city of Verona. Our guide, Dennis, was so friendly and knowledgeable. As we walked the city, Dennis told us so much about its history that we feel we know more about it that the experienced tourist. He informed us about the stories behind the buildings and statues. So much Roman and Medieval history. We will definitely recommend Dennis to anyone wanting an experienced and knowledgeable tour guide. Thank you, Dennis!

Our tour guide Francesco was lovely, very enthusiastic,incredibly knowledgeable and well-informed about the city and its history. He took us to locations we wouldn't normally find or know of. It was a great tour to get to know Verona and her history. He also was very attentive and easy to get along with. I highly recommend this tour.

Excellent all around. First, we almost missed the tour entirely because we accidentally ended up in Milano long story. The tour guide was waiting for us in Verona and was worried so she called me. When I told her that we were in Milano by mistake and were terribly sad that we were going to miss the tour, she spoke with the other tourists and they agreed to postpone the tour until later in the day and we were able to get to Verona in the afternoon and take the walking tour! The tour guide I apologize for not remembering her name she is the author of the tour book that they sell in the piazza was very gracious and I'll never forget her courtesy in rearranging the time of the tour so we could make it. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed Verona. The best part of the tour is that it was a small group and the tour guide was not in a hurry. We will definitely go back some day.

the tour and scenery is great but our experience is not. Poorly organize, we have at least 50 people for 1 guide and we don't have a headset to listen to the commentary of the tour guide, so we miss a lot of information because of too many people in the group.

Maria Pia was fabulous. Her knowledge of Verona and its history is amazing. She must be commended. We would have loved it if it had been a little longer, but it did give us a true insight into the culture and history of Verona. we would love to come back and explore Verona more. Thank you Maria.
