TO DO, TO KNOW, TO SEE IN VERONA

let's start with a quick tour of the town, just to see what's going on:

SPRITZ!

Spritz is a low alcoholic drink. It's consumed just before meals.

Ok, just to make this clear: we don't drink Spritz before every meal... Sometimes, when you're in the right place with the right people a Spritz is just perfect.

 

If this is your first time in Verona I strongly raccomend you to enjoy your first Spritz in one of the historical Caffè in Piazza Erbe.

 

And the most historical of all is: "Caffè Filippini"

COFFEE

CAFFE' TUBINO
CAFFE' TUBINO

GUIDED TOUR

TAGteach International is pleased to offer you a unique experience in one of the most historical cities in the world.   Each conference day, professional archeologist and educator Luca Canever will take a limited number attendees on a two-hour walking tour of Verona. You’ll walk among medieval churches and buildings, ancient Roman roads, and discover hidden corners of Verona.


  Our personal guide, Luca Canever, is a Level 3 TAGteacher, professional educator, and archaeologist in Verona. He has excavated Greek gravesites in Adria, a pre-Roman town in Padova, and even an ancient glass factory beneath the conference site.


Luca says this about the tour for conference attendees:   Don’t expect Juliet’s Balcony or the Roman Arena. Those can be found on any tour. You will be treated to the unexpected. I’ll show you where people gathered and tell you how they actually lived in ancient times. You’ll visit Romeo’s house and hear the living history of Verona from a historian’s point of view.  


Our tour will begin from the Don Bosco Institute and continue along Corso Cavour, Arco dei Gavi and then enter Roman Town through the Porta Borsari. We’ll explore what Roman Citizens did in time of danger and how they quickly built new city walls.   Do you like coffee? We’ll stop at Caffè Tubino, a historic shop full of every kind of coffee, tea, and hot chocolate!   Then we will cross the beautiful Piazza Erbe and Piazza Dante. Here, in the heart of Medieval Verona, I will introduce you to a man who’s been smiling from his grave for 700 years. We’ll travel more Roman roads and through an ancient market square before winding up the tour at Caffè Filippini" for the classic Italian Aperitif - the Spritz   


 WHEN: Each Conference Day from 5.30 to 7.30 p.m. Tours are open to only 20 people.
