Our local tour guide, Paola, will show you the most famous historical landmarks of Verona, along with some mysterious and less known stories about the city of love. The meeting point is Castelvecchio. The tour will then lead you to the Arco dei Gavi, the old Via Postumia, the romanic church of S. Lorenzo, until the roman Portoni Borsari. From here you will walk into the medieval times, across hidden places and popular legends. The walk continues on cobblestoned little streets towards Piazza Erbe, S. Anastasia, the roman theatre, to end in Piazza Bra around 5.15 pm. Right on time for the aperitivo!

Aperitivo Italian Style to welcome our "foreign" guests

6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Cocktail Attire

Aperitivo is good wine and good friends, and it usually equals Spritz. It is staple of the Italian culture and the best way to welcome you to Verona! Cafe Dante overlooks one of the most beautiful squares in Verona (also called piazza Dante), and is a Michelin selection serving outstanding Italian cousine. If you would like to have dinner here following our aperitivo please book your table in advance and do not forget to let them know you are part of Chiara's party!

Wedding Mass / Cerimonia

3:00 pm

Formal Attire

The Pieve di San Giorgio di Valpolicella (also called Pieve di San Giorgio "Ingannapoltron") is an ancient parish church, probably built on a place previously assigned to the pagan cult and dating back to the VIII century. The name "Ingannapoltron" means "to fool the lazy", and it refers to the fact that the Pieve looks close when you are at the foot of the hill, but it's not! The current religious building represents one of the most interesting and ancient examples of Romanesque architecture in the province of Verona. Parking is limited. Parcheggio limitato, zona ZTL.

Reception / Ricevimento

5:30 pm


Formal Attire

In the heart of Valpolicella, on the eastern slopes of the hill of Castelrotto, where the homonymous, enchanting village of stone houses and palaces stands. Here is where you will find the Villa we picked for our wedding. It was built between the end of the fifteenth century and the beginning of the sixteenth century, initially as a fortress house to defend the grounds and later expanded to a sumptuous summer residence...We cannot wait to welcome you there!
