Private Walking Tour of Verona

The ancient walls around the old city had first appeared during the Middle Age, and year after year have been modified by the many governors that succeeded during the centuries. The hills that end just before outside the center are called Torricielle and now days are covered with woods, dry prairies, and wine yards. But the natural taste of rural life lingers and this is what makes our culture so unique.
