If it ever comes to your mind to ask to a Veronese to tell you about Verona, we have some advice for you.

If it ever comes to your mind to ask to a Veronese to tell you about Verona, we have some advice for you.

18 June 2021

If possible, sit comfortably.
Possibly, at a bar table.
Possibly, with a glass of (Veronese) wine in front of you.
Possibly, the wine should be on you. Well, indeed no, they will offer to pay, for the enthusiasm to let you know how beautiful Verona is.

The touched topics will probably be the following: how beautiful the Arena, Piazza Bra, Castelvecchio and the Roman Theater are, how delicious and tasty pearà, pastissada de caval and Valpolicella wine are.. shall we go on?

Because Verona is just that: it is beautiful and it is good.
It is beautiful to visit, all of it. It is good to eat and drink (mostly, but we are biased).

The problem is, however, that if you don't have a guide who put all this together, you risk missing something (or finding yourself in the morning at the aforementioned bar).

For these reasons, we at Pagus Wine Tours, have thought of a solution for you, in which you can feel, visit and enjoy the beauty and goodness of Verona, in just 3 hours: with a Colors of Italy guide and final tasting at our Store.

You can choose among 3 tours: a walk in the most famous places, a walk between wine and art or a bicycle ride up the hills.

Below you will find them in detail, please feel free to ask all the information here and live your experience in Verona. Then you will be the one telling your Veronese friends how beautiful and good their city is, which will then become a little yours too.

1. Walk in Verona and tasting

A Pagus Wine Tours® proposal born in collaboration with Colors of Italy guides.

2. Art and wine in Verona

Following the shades of a good glass of red wine, we will discover how much "red" is present in the heart and in the art of Verona.

We will visit the beautiful Church of San Zeno, a jewel of the Veronese Romanesque, which houses medieval and Renaissance masterpieces, in search of the details about wine, vine, bunches in the architectural and pictorial decoration of the church. We will be captured by the pink and red color of its marbles and in the shade of the cloister columns, we will see how art and wine are intimately connected.

After visiting the church, we will walk along the banks of the river Adige, admiring the Veronese hills of Valpolicella where wine has been grown since Roman times.

We will then arrive at the castle of the Scaligeri, the powerful family that dominated the city of Verona in the medieval period and that left a strong mark on the city's architecture. We will climb the red brick bridge and see the panorama of the city from the patrol walkways, passing between battlements and towers.

We will enter the castle Castelvecchio, whose museum now houses a rich collection of paintings. Leaving the castle we will return to the tracks of the Roman chariots, discovering the particularities of the Veronese cuisine which used wine as an ingredient for many of its dishes.

In the end we will walk on a real Roman road of two thousand years ago, imagining the river and land transports that carried wine from our Veronese hills.

At this point there will be nothing better than taking a break and tasting the wine, perhaps from a particular underground point of view, accessible only to us!
