We will start from the Arena to get and explore the oldest part of Verona's town centre in search of the medieval buildings related to the story of Romeo and Juliet like the oldest square where we'll see the building frequented by the Montagues, their house to then finish along the Roman Cardo Maximus street along which lies the so called house of Juliet. We will discover many unknown sights and we will access to some most hidden places that you would never expect and find on your own like entering into an old church, going downstairs in the cellar of a restaurant and in the basement of a shop. Meanwhile we gradually enter into the realistic background of the story of Romeo & Juliet and you will discover how the story is twisted with the history of Verona. We will actually investigate why the story became so popular and we will discover why Shakespeare never needed to come and visit to get to know it. Two hours of total fascination at the end of which yuor knowledge of Verona will be deep and unforgettable.
I have the privilege to have been for years a qualified and licensed Tourist Guide in my birthplace & favorite city: Verona. My mission is to unveil the secrets of such a charming Unesco World Heritage Site, which deserves to be experienced better by those who visit it and ignore how many enchanting monuments and hidden corners it has, how many time-periods and events it's gone through and even why it's the set of a tragedy written by the most celebrated playwright who never however was here. There are many things to show and explain to let my guests have the most fascinating experience of it.
